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.

The state of things

The most loyal of our followers may have been wondering about the lack of updates regarding the development of Galactic Armory 2.0. Unfortunately there is no nice way of saying this; simply put, the development is put on ice.

Now this may come surprising and as a huge shock for most of you, but for everyone on the team this was something that was visible on the horizon for a long time. In the end it boils down to real life interfering with our plans, combined with said plans being overly ambitious, and ultimately a lack of motivation that grew worse as time went on. There isn't a single person to blame for this (well, maybe except myself...), and a step we pretty much decided unanimously on.

What the future holds

With Blind Mind Studios having officially announced Star Ruler 2 just a few days ago, there is a possibility we - either as a whole or at least some of us - will be modding SR2 as well. However, the announcement of SR2 had absolutely nothing to do with our decision; it was made long before any news of SR2 had been released. It is also worth noting that it is still far too early to make any promises, so you may or may not see us working on an SR2 mod in the future.

With that being said I also can not rule out some further refinement of Galactic Armory for SR1. While there are no plans as of now, it is not entirely impossible that there will be some form of improvement in the future. No promises, though!

Parting Words

"Parting words" is admittedly sounding overly dramatic, but since I do not now when or if I will post another news for this mod, I would like to say a final thank you to everyone who had been involved in the making of this mod over the course of the last years. This includes of course the team members and fellow modders, who contributed so much work and content to the mod, but also YOU as loyal fans and players of the mod, who would always give us valuable feedback and ideas, as well as the developers of Star Ruler, who have always been helpful in every possible way.

Thank You!

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.

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.
