Galactic Armory 1.9.1b is now available! This release ensures full compatiblity with Star Ruler 1.2.0.0, fixes numerous bugs and adds many new high-quality planet textures as well as other features.

Posted by XTRMNTR2K on Jun 8th, 2012

A beta release? That's a first.

Yes, you've read that right - this is indeed our first public release of a beta version. This does not mean that 1.9.1 is necessarily unstable. We do, however, admit that there may still be some issues and/or overlooked bugs. We did not want to delay the release of a version that's playable on SR 1.2.0.0 any longer, so please enjoy the mod and report any issues you find in the official SR forum thread.

Shiny things for your desktop

In addition to the latest full release of Galactic Armory, we'd like to present you a small collection of wallpapers containing original artwork created by our extremely talented 2D artist, balancesheet.
