Galacticraft 3 (GC3) is the Minecraft 1.7.10 update to the Galacticraft mod series. It is included in many modpacks for Minecraft 1.7.10.

The main additions in GC3 include the Asteroids dimension, the Tier 3 Rocket, freefall motion outside Space Stations, rotating space stations, the introduction of a temperature system, Titanium Armor, Titanium Tools, a second tier to the power system, Display Screens, and the Astro Miner. There are many other new tools, machines, and items, including more ways to make Oxygen and Fuel, and various other Gases which can be liquefied. Finally, GC3 adds smoother gameplay and expanded functions and abilities for some existing items to add even more to your experience in outer space!

Galacticraft 3 was officially released on November 9, 2014. It has been continually updated and added to since that time, and all players are strongly recommended to update to the Latest version (as of early 2017, that's version 3.0.12.485 or later). Even if you are playing in a modpack, it's OK to download newer Galacticraft files and replace the ones used by the modpack. But if playing on a server, make sure you match the server version!

Galacticraft 3 was first released in Beta form on July 24, 2014 for Minecraft 1.7.2, and on July 31, 2014 for Minecraft 1.7.10 / 1.7.2 (dual compatible).

Galacticraft 3 consists of three mod files: GalacticraftCore, Galacticraft-Planets and MicdoodleCore. Galacticraft-Planets was formerly named GalacticraftMars, and that is still its internal mod name.
