Ok I understand that we filled an empty nich. Maybe the great apes did. So for a long time the Americas were isolated from the rest of the world. Not even Native Americans. We even had mega Fauna that weren't in the rest of the world, or have became extinct everywhere els gre. So here is the question why were there no other humanoids, or other great apes for that matter when we had plenty of monkeys in the Americas while we evolved in the old world. First in europe then in Africa. The nich didn'...

The first impression of gameplay in a 4X strategy game tends to be what the opening choices are.  And this is something we have tried our best to optimize in GalCiv III. In version 3.96, we are giving players the shipyard again by default (which we used to have back in 1.0).   The presence of the starting shipyard has everything to do with having meaningful starting decisions. For example, here is v3.96 without the shipyard as an option now: We added a new ...

  TouchTasks, Stardock's newest productivity app was reviewed by Martin Brinkmann at gHacks yesterday. In his closing comments, he wrote: "TouchTasks is a handy software for Windows 10 touch devices like the Surface Pro to improve productivity. It is quite flexible when it comes to the actions that you can assign to zones; the default actions are handy for the most part and the ability to launch any application from a zone is great as well especially when using fullscreen applicati...
I love my Surface Pro.  It doesn't always love me.  This Summer, a firmware update caused the keyboard cover connector to not work anymore which forced me to use the Surface truly as a tablet.  It wasn't...a good experience. While I wasn't a fan of Windows 8, it was a pretty decent touch OS.  Windows 10...not so much.  A big part of the reason Windows 10 isn't good for touch is that it doesn't use the screen edges well. Windows 10, by default, has these touch-based...

Bring "Zones" to your Windows 10 Touchscreens with TouchTasks!TouchTasks is a unique productivity app that lets you assign tasks to specific locations on the edge of your Windows touch screens. TouchTasks works by taking advantage of the fact that the touch sensitive area of a touch screen is larger than the display part of the screen. As a result, users can launch useful tasks by touching specified zones on the screen.  By default, TouchTasks assigns the left middle edge of the touch sc...

Windows Defender is an excellent antivirus and antispyware. On my machine, I use it and Malwarebytes Premium. I also try to use common sense as to where I visit, and what I open. Advanced Threat Detection was added to Defender (MS) as a voluntary service. It was originally part of Enterprise solutions. I opted to add it to my system. I've had to remove it, since I didn't want to roll back the update and wait hopefully for a bug fix which would break something else. "Microsoft Defender ATP ...
We're putting the finishing touches on GalCiv III v3.95 which includes both balance changes and new game options and some quality of life updates. Originally we were going to go right from v3.6 to v4.0 but we've broken the tasks down into smaller chunks, hence v3.7, v3.8, v3.9, v3.91 and now v3.95 But we've also been working on v4.0 which has a heavy modding emphasis. Now that the major expansions to III are over (we will still be releasing DLCs, but all new FEATURE changes will happen in ...
