Galcon 2 – Galaxy Map update!

September 7th, 2015

Ahoy there,


New Galaxy Map update out for everyone to see! The key differences are this:

– Once a star is taken, it cannot be attacked again
– The war will be extended extra days until you conquer it
– Clans can only wage two wars at a time
– There is no Galcoin cost for wars, except for the initial invasion
– Discovered constellations give 2x points

The strategy here is that large clans need to connect to smaller clans as quickly as possible so they can have access to more wars to ally in, so their faction can expand more quickly.

Have fun!

Galcon 2 – Galaxy Map 2.0

August 5th, 2015

The Galaxy Map has been re-opened! The major changes include dividing the clans into factions and connections between stars.


The main changes from the old map are:

– Clans are divided into 3 factions
– All wars and alliances require proximity
– The map will supernova after X days
– Stars values no longer change

Have fun!

Hey everyone, get ready for an INTERGALACTIC PARTY!

We’ve got 3 new trophies, new ships and new planets!

To fill in you in the galaxy map updates, I’ve added support for alliances so you can help other clans do battle on the map. You can now also see the heroes on either side of a war, as well as see who the allies are.

Using alts in game is now discouraged, players using alts will not be able to be a hero in the galaxy map wars. A “?” appears next to alting user’s names.

Coming soon is going to be a proximity feature, where clans can only attack nearby planets. So, in order to prepare for this change, you may want to build your planets into a cluster so they are better defended. This is going to add a whole new level of strategy to conquering the map.

Have fun!

Galcon 2 – The Galaxy Map is here!

May 29th, 2015


The Galaxy Map is now available to everyone! I hope all the clans have fun battling it out over stars! To conquer, use skill, strategy, and diplomacy! Read the help for an overview of the map rules, and be sure to drop by the forums if you have questions or feedback.
