The long-awaited follow up to the "spaceploitation" strategy classics Master of Orion and Master of Orion 2, MOO 3 attempts to combine unprecedented depth with user-friendliness in one ultimate "4X" gaming eXperience. The basic game formula is the same, though: start out with one planet, eXplore the galaxy, eXpand by founding new colonies and bases, eXploit resources, and then eXterminate your opponents--or at least show them who is boss! (MobyGames)

Technically these are hybrid Mac/PC disc images, but both partitions contain the same (Mac) files but with different naming. So these are Mac-only disc images.

A mounted physical copy of the Play CD is required to play the game. A mounted disc image is not sufficient.

The download from the internal server is the updater to v1.2.5.

Maybe worth noting that the game is running fine via Rosetta in Snow Leopard.
The physical CD is needed, as written above.

Setting up Snow Leo on an old Intel LGA775 PC with AMD HD5450 GPU
is easy as eating cake with Nawcom´s mod, btw.
