Jump to: navigation, search

There are many different planet types in the game, some can be colonized others not. The quality number next to them represents how many hexs (minus 1 for colony capital) you will have access to. So the higher the better.

Extreme Planets[edit | edit source]

There are seven extreme planets either in Galactic Civilizations III or planned to be in the game in the future via patch, DLC (Downloadable Content), or an expansion. Extreme planets by definition require additional technologies or abilities to be able to colonize. The five extreme planets currently in the game are Aquatic GC3 Extreme Water 32.png, Barren GC3 Extreme Barren 32.png, Frozen GC3 Extreme Frozen 32.png, Radioactive GC3 Extreme Radioactive 32.png and, Toxic GC3 Extreme Toxic 32.png along with two currently not in the game, Heavy GC3 Extreme Heavy 32.png and Unstable GC3 Extreme Unstable 32.png.

Mining Planets[edit | edit source]

There are currently two mining planets in Galactic Civilizations III, Promethion GC3 Icon Promethion 32.png, and Thulium GC3 Icon Thulium 32.png. These planets are not able to be colonized or conquered, however, they can be mined for those resources which aide in the construction of buildings or ship components. For additional information on mining these resources please see Starbases.

Remaining Planets[edit | edit source]

The remaining planet types are your Earth like, Normal planets, which are the main planets races will colonize and conquer and, Dead planets, which are unable to be colonized or mined and are generally useless.
