Galactic Civilizations 4 Console Commands – What you need to know

The Galactic Civilization Franchise is quite popular in the Sci-Fi space 4X games genre. Stardock Entertainment did an excellent job with the prequels, and they’ve managed to carry over that familiar playstyle into their latest game while vastly improving core gameplay elements.


The sci-fi adventure remains largely unchanged, with new and improved mechanics and more things to do in the game. The movement mechanics in Galactic Civilization IV are one of the game’s highlights. GCIV has clusters of solar systems bunched together instead of lanes connecting one solar system to another. Players can jump clusters to access a new colony of ‘solar systems.’


The sheer amount of information can be overwhelming for new players, but with practice, it all becomes second nature. The race selection menu, in particular, has taken a lot of time and effort to make it appealing to new players. Furthermore, with fully animated 3D sprites staring back at the player, it’s clear that the developers put a lot of effort into attempting to create and tailoring the various alien civilizations.


The game has a steep learning curve, and this list of console commands will make the new game experience much smoother for beginners.
