Star Ruler offers freedom of choice unlike any other 4X space RTS did before. Newtonian physics, objects orbiting around stars and planets, an easy to learn blueprint editor and free ship scalability are only a fraction of the unique features it has to offer. Utilizing the Irrlicht engine, the game offers great graphics and a fantastic soundtrack by Artem Bank, ensuring a unique, captivating atmosphere.

Galactic Armory is a Total Conversion/Expansion mod for Blind Mind Studios' 4X hit Star Ruler. The mod includes more than 100 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.



The development of Galactic Armory 2.0

has officially ceased as of August 10, 2013.

In case you have been living under a rock, Blind Mind Studios revealed the development of Star Ruler 2 almost exactly a year ago. The game, which is supposed to be a true improvement over BMS original 4X RTS hit in all aspects, is now available on Steam Early Access: Store.steampowered.com

Read the announcement here


Star Ruler 2 has been in development for three years already, and aims to improve playability by not just expanding on features that had been neglected in SR1 (yes diplomacy, I am looking at you!), but also streamlining the accessibility of the game without dumbing down gameplay.

If that wasn't enough, the moddability of the game has an even higher priority this time around, ensuring that virtually any aspect of the game can be modded.

Needless to say that if you liked Star Ruler 1 (and, just maybe, the Galactic Armory mod) you should definitely check SR2 out and keep an eye open (or two) for any modding-related news to come!

Does that mean we're getting GA2? That would kind of be awesome.

At this point I can neither deny nor confirm that.

There is, however, a chance you're getting *something* sometime. :D

Searched all over the internet. No instructions on how to install the mod anywhere. Readme includes two words. Can someone please assist? I've placed the mod in the mod folder in program files(x86) But this does nothing.

how do you start a new game with the mod selected as active mod?

Ah, sorry about the readme file. The last release (1.9.4) is the only one without proper instructions as we just wanted to get it out as quickly as we could.

As for the mod installation, just extract the folder into your star rulers mod directory, i.e. c:\Games\Star Ruler\Mods and then start a new game with the mod selected as active mod (if activated, you'll see the new game options menu change).

If the mod is installed correctly, it appears in the dropdown menu when you select "new game" from the main menu. Once you select the mod from the list, you should immediately see the available new game options change.
