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!

So I decided to pick this up once again (the game) and found it lacking, I then picked up this mod, and my previous feelings were fixed.

There is something seriously wrong with the import trade in multiplayer. I dont get any import trade amount at all. Its always 0 even with 10 star ports...Using GA 1.9.3 with Star Ruler 1.2.1.2

And besides everything thats really really great at this mod, the new import trade system kinda ruins it for me, even if it was working. If you think through in the end you end up having research and spaceport planets only where you should be able to put everything in space not just construction. Just as an input...

Using GA 1.9.2 with Star Ruler 1.2.1.2 , any ship constructed with an Import Dock in a multiplier game will crash the client. Except the hosts game. Fix is seriously needed :)

hey there, when a friend and i are playing the mod in multiplayer, it happens, that he crashes from time to time when clicking the blueprint button. sometimes also just random. i play as host, and never have any kind of crashes. anyone else knows this problem?

small update, my friend uninstalled/reinstalled everything, after that same problems. Then he played as the host, me client. Now i experience the same crashing issues,it seems to be a game/mod problem, not a specific client side problem.

Mostly works fine in the beginning, and then in middle/late game the crashes come. And then even after relogging, sometimes already after a few seconds. would be very cool if you found the error, because your mod rocks otherwise, as the game does :) btw, strangely in single player none of us has crashes, as as host. Internet connection is quite good, both around 100 mbit down and 10 up. Game is the Steam Version + the actual mod, windows 7 64 bit

ps: in standard mode we never crashed when we played togheter, even in hours long matches.
