Galaxiki 2.5 Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new update for Galaxiki was recently released. Version 2.5 of the wiki based editable online galaxy includes over 100 new additions including the ability to edit solar system physics, the option to add or edit planetary rings, the unveiling of a new search engine.

In July 2011 Galaxiki 2.5 is taking us to the next level, offering over 100 new features, changes and tweaks.

There are more editable planetary physics (size, mass, density, number of moons...), planets can now have rings, there's a new search engine and a newsfeed showing edited systems.

You can rate solar systems and leave comments, bookmark your favourite solar systems and add personal notes, you immediately see who edited a solar system and edited solar systems are visible on a users homepage.

You can set your current status (what am I doing right now?), give awards to other users, bookmark favourite users and add personal notes.

Galaxiki is a fictional online galaxy that can be edited by its community. Each star, each planet and each moon is represented by a wiki page that can be edited by its site members. Users can make changes to solar systems, add creatures and write stories. One of the main goals is to invent and write collaborative stories, which requires users to make sure their solar system histories remain compatible.

It's a social web2.0 site for science fiction, space and fantasy addicts. You'll instantly feel at home if you're familiar with Google maps, Wikipedia and social sites such as Facebook or Google plus for example.

Galaxiki membership and editing community stars is free. Some users want to own a personal solar system that cannot be edited by other members, therefore its possible to get a personal system by making a donation (you can give as much as you want, starting at $1). The site itself is being financed through donations and a small amount of advertising.
