Abilities

From Galactic Civilizations III Wiki
(Redirected from Determined)
Jump to: navigation, search

Abilities represent the culture of a race through specific bonuses and access to certain Planet types.

Crusade and Retribution.png introduce many dependencies of Improvements and technologies on Abilities. Crusade uses Abilities to control access to certain Citizens. Intrigue.png restricts access to some Governments behind Abilities.

Abilities are distinct from traits in that traits modify a single statistic, while an ability can have broader and more fundamental effects on gameplay.

List[edit | edit source]

The table below summarizes the abilities. For technologies and improvements specific to an ability, the table only includes the root of a technology branch or base of an improvement progression.
