Description
Includes all the races from Star Control 2 as if they all survived after the ending of the game and the Chmmr removed all slave shields. Traits of races are based mostly on how their ships acted in the game and their general personality.

For best experience:
* Set Utwig and Supox on the same team
* Set Earthlings and Arilou on the same team
* Set Ur-Quan difficulty two points above all other races, maybe have Kohr-Ah a level higher as they are supposed to be stronger than Kzer-Za
* Set Chmmr difficulty level to one below or same as the Ur-Quan

For the unfinished Total Conversion mod see the following webpage on GitHub - https://github.com/StarControlGalCiv/GalCiv3StarControl

NEWS FLASH: Activision has greenlit the creation of a direct sequel to Star Control 2, learn more on the official blog - https://dogarandkazon.squarespace.com/

Till then, Stardock will probably finish making the game that is spiritually inspired by Star Control 2 - https://www.starcontrol.com/starcontrolorigins

I'll have to reconvert this for Crusade as Factions are now automatically converted to Civilizations...

FYI: The game these races are based on (Star Control 2) has been released into the public domain, or at least some form of Creative Commons, by the original creators. Except for the actual title "Star Control" (which now belongs to Stardock, isn't life funny that way?) you can play the whole game legally and for free. Google "The Ur-Quan Masters" for more details. Deffo worth checking out, this game is a classic.

I did not play the game this mod is based on, however I found it via workshop and find it SO stylish :). This will be great addition to my game! Also - finally some civilizations that aren't bent on destroying everything in the galaxy :D. Once I start a new game after the Crusade is available - I will definitely use your creations in my playthrough!
