When you run your game at the start menu you should notice "map editor" displayed along the bottom. Click on it and make your map.

\Steam\steamapps\common\Galactic Civilizations III\data\Game\StrategicResourceDefs.xml,
copy it to the example mod folder

\Documents\My Games\GC3Crusade\Mods\ExampleMod\Game\
Then you can edit the durantium yield. Theres something else you can do to increase the placement rate but I dont recall at the time. Its mentioned in one of the earlier "need more durantium" or "game has become frustrating" threads.

Its easier to use the example mod folder because those files get the higher priority when it comes to load order, so you arent playing whack-a-mole trying to figure out which copy of the file in which path is the right one.

How bad off are you if you play without any durantium? Can you still do well or do you lose ship battles cause of it?

Well you can't use tactical repair components without it. However the AI doesn't use it at all so it's not a disadvantage. It's mostly starbases that can't be upgraded without it.

Depends on your technology you research. It's eventually required to build ships, starbases and one or two manufacturing improvements on planets. Not having enough of any resource can cost you your game. If you have a government that allows you to buy from the market you can get it there but the cost keeps going up as availability decreases.
I think Durantium is always located on an Asteroid, so try increasing the frequency of Asteroids on your Map when setting up the Map and Game. More asteroids are useful for more Asteroids Mines sending raw material points to your Worlds, which is a BIG help for small and new colonies.

Otherwise, either make trades with other Races for it, or try to buy it on the Market.
