Star Ruler is a large scale, real-time grand strategy set in space. Design, build, and take control of potentially thousands of ships, and expand the reach of your empire across the entire galaxy.


Galactic Armory

Galactic Armory is an expansion mod for Star Ruler. The mod includes over 70 new subsystems and structures, completely reworked balancing, new and improved game mechanics, new graphics and sound effects and a lot more. The main goal is to give Star Ruler even more of a simulation feel while expanding on content and keeping it fun to play at the same time.

I bought this game twice once on game spot and once here. because the mods I downloaded didn't work with my first, and now they don't even work with the one I bought on this site. Is there a tutorial on how to properly get these mods to work or can some one tell me what I'm not doing right?

How do you install this mod, I have this game on Steam.
Do I have to download the very first file and work up the list or do I download the file that fits my version.

just an idea for a future update. the big problem i find with this game is that it is very difficult to intercept ships, because of the newtonian physics, the enemy can just target your worlds. This highlights 2 things first of all why is all the infrastructure concentrated on worlds, perhaps habitats in moons/asteroids etc. + make it more difficult to take out a world, make them tougher so you need to kind of siege it. Second of all there are pretty poor defences, maybe you could set up small debris fields, like mines, which will damage enemies when you go through them. One other small thing, it would be cool if you could use asteroids like weapons, just speed them up point them at the enemy.. comets are kind of already like this.

I agree. The newtonian physics are a pain. Everytime I invade a system I get gravitated out of it on get stuck on the star. Im not sure if there is technology to counter this effect that you can research? Its a beautiful game no doubt but for one the camera takes getting use to as I get lost or end up on the other side of the galaxy sometimes when zooming. They need to incorporate Sins of a Solar Empire's camera as it's very effective.

Good stuff

The mod didn't allow me to interact with my research screen in anyway, and wouldn't even open the planet menu.
I downloaded this mod because it looked very promising, so a patch where it would work would be appreciated. Not sure what the problem is.
