Despite the fact that Galactic Civilization 3 left Early Access a while ago, Stardock has been keeping the game up-to-date and fresh at the demands of the community - and more is on the way.

Update 1.2 has dropped for Stardock's Galactic Civilizations 3, adding 3D printing support for vessels created in the game's ship designer. Yes, that's right, you can now own a real-life copy of the monstrous, laser-spewing abomination you're currently obliterating galactic life with.

You can find the full details in-game, but the hist is that you can click a button to head straight over to the Sculpteo website, where your design will be evaluated. If it's all above-board, you can pay them to print it.

The latest patch for Stardock's excellent space 4X Galactic Civilizations 3 has dropped, adding Steam Workshop support. Yes, it's now surely only a matter of time before some enterprising modder adds Death Stars and Klingon Warbirds into the game.

There's already a tonne of community created content on there, over 500 items in fact. Here's a pretty nice Battlestar, for instance, or how about... a robot dog?
