In Action

Difficulty

Sub Commanders are not impacted by difficulty. At any difficulty level, you can choose to enable Easier Start which provides you with more neutral planets with free tech.

Beginner: you've completed the tutorial and are new to the game.

Casual: you've some PA experience under your belt.

Iron: you've overcome your turtle instincts.

Bronze: you've beaten vanilla Galactic War.

Silver: you've beaten the skirmish AI.

Gold: you've beaten the Queller AI.

Platinum: one enemy Commander is no longer a worthy challenge.

Diamond: your loadouts are too powerful.

Uber: you're a Galactic War master ready for the ultimate challenge.

Custom: you want to create your own challenge.

Difficulty Options

  • Faction Scaling: the number of factions put into the galaxy depends on its size.
  • System Scaling: system size depends on how far into the galaxy you are.
  • Easier Start: choose to have four neutral systems to plunder at the start instead of the usual two.

Planetary Intelligence

Each system will display the following information:

  • System Area: the total surface size of all planets, excluding gas giants.
  • Threat Level: based on the total eco score of all enemies.
  • Bounties: gain an eco bonus for each army destroyed. Enemies gain these too.
  • Land Anywhere: you can land anywhere on any starting planet.
  • Sudden Death: the defeat of a single army on a team leads to the defeat of the entire team. This includes Sub Commanders.
  • Threat: the eco threat of that Commander. This increases the deeper you proceed into the galaxy.
  • Personality: the playstyle adopted by the Commander. Some are better than others and it's up to you to figure out which.
  • Additional Factions: the system is a FFA and these factions will fight against you, each other, and the primary faction.

AI Buffs

  • Build: AI has Improved Build Arms.
  • Combat: AI has Combat Tech.
  • Cost: AI has Fabrication Tech.
  • Damage: AI has Ammunition Tech.
  • Health: AI has Armour Tech.
  • Speed: AI has Engine Tech.

These buffs are applied to commanders on a per-faction basis:

  • Legonis Machina: vehicle units and factories
  • Foundation: air and naval units and factories
  • Synchronous: bot units and factories
  • Revenants: orbital units, orbital and superweapon structures
  • Cluster: all structures

FAQ

Why am I not seeing the latest changes in my war?
Many changes will only apply to new wars.

Why am I seeing multiple Commanders for a single enemy army?
Both bosses and FFA factions will use Shared Armies to allow for multiple Commanders within a single army. This provides them with more additional build power and more lives. It allows them to very quickly connect multiple planets.

Why aren't awarded bounties showing on the player list?
Galactic War hides eco modifiers from the player list. The bounties are still being awarded. If you gain one it will show below your eco bar.

Known issues

  • Some users have reported sometimes in a battle the sim can freeze while the UI continues to respond. This is being tracked through issue 79, with the current common factors appearing to be the player using bots and the enemy featuring a Cluster Security commander.
