2.2 ‘Le Guin’ Free Features

  • Added a new, more user-friendly planet screen, with better organization and display of info and buttons

This means if the process is interrupted part way, some of the ships will still be upgraded, rather than losing the entire upgrade progress. Also, alloy costs are now deducted one ship at a time, rather than for the entire fleet in one go, so you don't have to wait until you can afford everything to start the upgrade process

  • Driven Assimilator tweaks: -Bio pop growth reduced by 40% -1 fewer Replicator job per level of capital -Now start with +100 food, and 100 less energy

  • Meritocracy Civic effect on leader pool size removed and replaced with specialist output +10%
