The GalCiv community has been working on an update for GalCiv II: Twilight of the Arnor. You can find the discussion here.
It’s really quite a thrill to be able to work with the community on a new update to the game. I originally came from the modding community as did the VP of Stardock Entertainment (Kael – aka Fall From Heaven). So being able to integrate the ideas, fixes, and improvements into the official game made by the fans is quite a joy.
Some of the changes necessary are requiring some code changes. Luckily, the IT team got me set up with a Windows XP VM so that I can load up Visual Studio 2003 to make those changes.
