To go with the 2.11.09 release, I have now also released the game scripting tools[].


The GBS (Game Builder System) includes the following:

  • PREPARE: script parser (the interpreter is built into the game and runs in real time)
  • Script sources for all scenarios included in the game
  • Sample scripts
  • Usage docs

This tool allows you to create brand new scenario scripts for both space and planetary regions or to modify the existing ones as needed.

*** WARNING ***

  1. Tools are only compatible with the 2.11.08 or higher engine, as they may need to be updated along with the game itself over time.
  2. Tools are 100% unsupported. So if you nuke your installation, you only recourse would be to uninstall and reinstall the game through the Steam client.
  3. You cannot modify the game 3D models, scenes (space or planetary) etc, as I have not released those tools - and have no plans to do so at this time.


The tools are 100% unsupported. But I will try to address issues, answer questions, as time permits.

Start by reading the README.TXT file.

If you look at the GBS_QREF.TXT file, the commands are all there. Though not all of them are used, they are self-explanatory. And reading GBS_DOCS.TXT also gives an overview of how the system works.

All the game's scripts for the game itself are included and can be used as examples. Simply search for the usage of a command, in order to learn how to use it. If a command isn't used in any of the scripts, and it's use is not clear, then feel free to ask.
