  • GalCiv2: Star Name Mod 2010

    While I wait for all the games I bought recently to get properly patched, I went back to GalCiv. Even bought Twilight of the Arnor to make it all new and fresh.

    So as always, I ran into my biggest annoyance with GalCiv - the silly star names. And once again, having lost the original version, I built a new "real" star names file. Thought I'd share in case anyone is interested:


    Star Name Mod: download

    Just unzip it into the data directory for the version you are playing - might want to back up the old one first:

    DL: \Stardock Games\GalCiv2\Data\English
    DA: \Stardock Games\GalCiv2\DarkAvatar\Data\English
    TA: \Stardock Games\GalCiv2\Twilight\Data\English

    Sample star names from my list:

    Phi Velorum
    Kappa Arae
    Mu Ophiuchi
    Iota Cephei
    L1154 29
    I Hydrae
    33 Lambda Ursae Majoris
    L480 69
    DM+59 1915B
    Sigma Ophiuchi
    4 Psi Pegasi
    Beta Scorpii
    Unukalhai
    Kappa Telescopii
    Eta Aurigae
    Mirach
    Omicron Capricorni
    Beta Arietis
    Xi Mensae
    Iota Gruis
    DM-42 5678
    Chi 2 Orionis
    Beta Arae
    Have fun.

      nice, didn't know where the file was to change this aspect until I saw this thread. I'm more interested in changing starnames in-game, like you can worldnames.

But it isn't for the U.S., its largest market; this game is being developed for South Korea. The New York company—best known for its "Grand Theft Auto" and "Borderlands" franchises—is the latest of a bevy of large U.S. game companies attempting to embrace the fast-growing Asian markets, where gaming consoles such as Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox and Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 barely have a presence.
