Galactic Civilizations III is one of the first of the “new generation” of natively 64-bit, DirectX 11 games. More importantly, it is both critically acclaimed and a best seller meaning that the hardware requirements of this game, while non-trivial, are not so high as to prevent it from being commercially successful.
We got the Steam hardware results on tens of thousands of Galactic Civilizations III players. Let’s take a look.
So what do they have?
We’ve been working like crazy to improve stability while at the same time adding in lots of new features and UI improvements. The next build, 0.55, is due out next week.
If you haven’t joined the Founder’s Program, it is going to be ending in the next couple weeks. At that point, Founders will start to receive additional keys to give to friends to help build up a proto-multiplayer community.

I love my Surface Pro 3. Windows 10 has transformed it from something I occasionally fiddled with to my primary mobile device (replacing my iPad and MacBook Pro combo for trips).
But it is, by no means, perfect.
The weaknesses of the Surface Pro 3 include:
It is almost 1.8 pounds. That's really too heavy to use as a tablet for an extended period of time.While Windows 10 has greatly improved the issue of it getting hot and the fan blariung, the fact it has a fan means ext...
Does your laptop or tablet run out of battery while it’s supposed to be asleep?
You can find out why thanks to a fairly obscure but relatively new feature in Windows.
Step 1: Open a command prompt in adminstrative mode
Step 2: Go to a temp directory (like cd\temp)
Step 3: Type powercfig /SleepStudy
This will create a file in the current directory. Open that file in your web browser and you will find out why.

Preface Ashes of the Singularity is an up-coming real-time strategy game that takes place in the year 2178 when humans have evolved to the point in which we interact with the physical world through constructs (think of a modern day Drone as a very primitive construct). A single human (or “Post-Human”) is handling millions of these constructs across many light years simultaneously just as we are “handling” 100,000 billion cells in our physical bodies right now.
The object of th...

We’re rapidly coming up on the new Founder’s build. Lots and lots of changes coming in.
Here are topics that have been brought up on the forum.
Q: What are you calling the core resource everyone is fighting over?
A: Turinium. We were calling it computronium internally (it’s a real thing) but we didn’t like the sound of it. Turinium sounds better and it’s a good nod to Alan Turing.
Q: Will seeds be upgradeable?
A: Yes. But n...
Of the games made in the past decade, Supreme Commander is probably the most similar to what we’re doing with Ashes of the Singularity. Its creator, Chris Taylor and I have been friends for years (I picked up his backyard chicken hobby and he picked up my beekeeping hobby). Chris also made my favorite game of all time, Total Annihilation.
A few years ago, Stardock worked with Gas Powered Games to make Demigod. Demigod started out as Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance and e...
