Star Control: Origins !!EXCLUSIVE!! Download PC Game
Arguably the greatest space adventure ever made for PC, this game is rich with humor and memorable characters. You start in a nearly empty space-ship, but as the game progresses, you can upgrade it with many modules that affect the vessel's attributes. You can discover new stars, meet new alien races, wage wars, and boldly go where no man has gone before you. A truly exceptional exploration game that that has influenced the entire industry. While playing this gem, it's really fun to observe how many of its gameplay features were copied by modern AAA titles.

Both Star Control and Star Control II were created by Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford under their Toys for Bob studio, with Accolade publishing the titles in the early 1990s. Star Control II is critically acclaimed among the best games of all time, with high demand for a sequel. By the early 2000s, the Accolade's publishing agreement with Reiche and Ford expired. Reiche and Ford still owned the copyrights in Star Control I and II, but they could not successfully purchase the Star Control trademark, leading them to consider a new title for a potential follow-up. This led them to remake Star Control II as The Ur-Quan Masters, which they released in 2002 as a free download under an open source copyright license.
In September 2018, Stardock filed a motion with the Court requesting a preliminary injunction preventing Reiche and Ford from issuing a DMCA takedown notice against Stardock's forthcoming Origins game. Judge Saundra Brown Armstrong denied Stardock's request on December 27, agreeing with Reiche and Ford that Stardock had been aware of the intellectual property issues by their own admission, but still started work on a potentially infringing product, calling the situation one of Stardock's own making. After the ruling, Reiche and Ford issued a DMCA takedown notice to Steam and GOG.com. Stardock did not file a counter-notice, and the games were subsequently removed from sale at the beginning of 2019. Later that month, both Steam and GOG.com restored Origins for sale. When Stardock owner Brad Wardell mentioned that the digital stores had reviewed and reconsidered the takedown, Polygon revealed correspondence where Stardock offered to accept potential copyright liability and secure both stores from the consequences of litigation.

Looking through the game files I see that there is a ..\Assets\Galaxies\StarControlGalaxy.xml file. This file has the definitions for all the games stars, planets and moons. We have already covered how we would add new content to this structure, but in this example we want to modify some existing entries.
A character can be a wide range of things. It can be a ship flying around in space, an inhabited planet, a building on a planet you are exploring, a star base floating in hyperspace. Basically anything you interact with. Even the missing parts of the Tywom ship at the start of the game are "characters". To create a new character make sure you are on the StarControlCharacters.xml tab in Adventure Studio and press the + button in the upper left.

For the most part you will view the game through the solar system view or the lander view. The former is the overhead view focused on your ship as you move about a solar system or through hyperspace. The latter is the view of your lander when you go down to a world, in order to collect resources and investigate various objects. With this solar system view you can see a good portion of the star system you are in, and depending on where you are you can see a portion of the cloud surrounding it. This cloud marks the edge of the system and entering it has you leave the system to enter hyperspace, where the view is similar, but I will come back to that.
I played at the game's maximum settings in a borderless window. Unfortunately, the graphical settings are not especially deep with there being just two quality settings, then anti-aliasing (I assume MSAA that tops out at 8x), resolution, window type, and v-sync. The game automatically started with the quality at max for me on my desktop but I needed to turn the AA up to 8x.
While I cannot give you performance data, I decided to do a different test that would give me some data you might be interested in. Earlier this year I put together an article titled Cutting Game Install Size Guide that describes some ways one can reduce the installation size of games, such as what files are typically safe to delete, but also a compression command built into Windows that can be surprisingly effective. Using the 'compact' command can be dangerous, as not all games like having their files compressed, so I will not do so when I am reviewing a game, but I wanted to give it a try with Star Control: Origins because while it installs to over 20 GB, the download for me was only around 8-9 GB, so clearly there is some effective compression being applied there. I was able to compact the files from 20.7 GB down to 11.4 GB and the game still launches and runs fine for me. Now there might be some issues I have not encountered yet, but at least with this quick test, it looks like you can cut the size by about 9 GB, if you are comfortable using the compact command. (If you do this, remember that updates replace the compressed files, so you will need to apply 'compact' again.)
In the adventure game, the player takes charge of a flagshipof alienorigin and sets out to free the Earth from enslavement. This isaccomplished by travelling between different solar systems andinteracting with the systems and their inhabitants.Travelling is initself quite challenging. Inside a solar system you can fly betweenplanets and scan them to see if they contain anything interesting, suchas minerals or energy readings. But to travel between systems you mustenter Hyperspace, a strange dimension where a mysterious drag slows youdown but distances are much smaller. Thankfully you have a trustystarmap, which makes navigating this bizarre place much easier.
Previous buyers of the game will retain the ability to download and play Star Control: Origins via Steam and GoG, but the game can no longer be purchased at all, which prompted Stardock to note that layoffs may well be coming soon. Understandable, given how they will no longer be earning anything until (and if) Star Control: Origins is reinstated. One has to wonder how smart it was for Stardock to release a new Star Control title while the litigation is looming over their heads. Stay tuned for more as the situation develops.
StarConThis is the follow up to Star Control 3, a game that was never released. For many years, we knew nothing of it, except what little could be gleamed from a few videos.Some time ago, a mysterious presence called dreamer appeared upon our old forum and gave us the game as an amazing gift.Before that starlord was doing his best to give us a copy. Threads of interest on thesubject can be found here on our old board and here.We're not currently hosting the game, but if you ask around it's easyenough to find.
Just downloaded Origins, but it will not start. Deleted it and redownloaded 3 times from Steam, but same issue. I started downloading the free dlc before the game was completely installed, so I am wondering if that is the issue? Is there a way to completely remove the expansions/ After I uninstall from Steam and verify the folder is completely gone, when reinstalling, it says something like "finding content already on the drive" before installing, almost as if there are files still out there. I did try unchecking the dlc content boxes on my Steam page, but still will not start.
I reinstalled the C++ redistrubtals and even deleted one folder at a time in the Star Control directory (in Steam/Common) and then had it validate and redownload the files. It will still not start. I opened a case with Tech Support and they asked me to use the forum so here I am again
