Acquiring GP

Galaxy Points galaxypoints.png GP can be purchased with real currency. Use the 'Redeem Points' link at the top left of the GL Interface Header to open up the popup window. Then, click on the 'Get More Points' button at the top of the popup window.

Note that the conversion rate in British pounds fluctuates over time due to currency speculation and market forces and should only be taken as an extremely rough guide. The actual cost at the time of purchase should be provided to you prior to payment by whichever service you choose to pay for the points with (e.g. Paypal).

  • British Pounds rates calculated for March 2011.
  • Note: In case you hadn't worked it out from the numbers, the larger purchases give you a better ratio of points to cash, so in order to maximize your points it is better to save up and buy in bulk, rather than buy repeated small amounts.

Spending GP

There are 10 possible outcomes provided by spending 10 galaxypoints.png GP to spin the Galaxy Wheel. youtube

The best outcome wins you 20 more Galaxy Points galaxypoints.png GP.

The next best outcome (Alien head) wins you 5 Rank Points.

The remaining 8 outcomes involve winning credits credits.png CR, based on your current rank [1].

  • Formula [2]: Rank * Rank * 500 * Galaxy Wheel muliplier

Available Galaxy Wheel multipliers: 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x, 10x, 20x, 50x

Change your Race and Profession

You can change your Race and Profession in a variety of ways.

When you initiate a Race change, both Race and Profession are changed in tandem - you can not directly only change your Profession.

Abandoning Planets

You can spend 5 Galaxy Points galaxypoints.png GP to abandon a planet you occupy.

The number of planets you can occupy is limited by your current rank. Thus, you may wish to abandon a planet of lesser value in order to take a more valuable one. Also, the amount of credits credits.png CR required to colonize or invade new planets increases with every planet owned. Abandoning your worst planets can help manage those costs.

To abandon a planet .. link to GL Interface Planets Tab

When you abandon a planet, all Structures on the planet are demolished, but subsequent owners may be able to utilize any remaining Planetary Effects. Abandoning a planet does not remove the planet from your database.

There is a 12 hour timer between abandons. The Paradox Generator is the only way to adjust the Abandon Timer.

According to the developer [3]: "I want colony choice to be strategic. A large legion can likely see many shares per day. Without a cooldown a single player could dominate all the decent shares that get thrown around without having to plan or worry."

Legion Missions

navigate to GL Interface Missions Tab

Change Remaining Time for 8 galaxypoints.png GP - can extend or reduce the timer by 1 hour

  • Change the amount of remaining time for this Mission, up to a 50% change from its original duration. Costs 8 GP per hour of adjustment.

Skip This Mission for 19 galaxypoints.png GP

  • Skip this legion mission, and allow for a new (and different) one to be chosen. Note: 2 missions cannot be skipped in a row.
