Documentation may be something I can assist on - am good at tech writing but no MHTML's under my belt yet, and couldn't program my way out of a bag! I could probably crank out a 4.0 set of instructions. If you are interested I have a MOOII guide junior and I updated that turned out pretty good for an example. Every bit of min-maxing everyone wrenched out of that game is fully documented
Yes, please do.
Our documentation is wiki-based, so all you need to do is get an account. It is to a large degree put together by the players.
On the "focus" issue, maybe keep the focus button? It has the imperial feel of "go and do this." And possibly a default balance state at colonization and a balance button next to it that makes adequate food and spreads the rest out? Easy, simple, and it puts the penalty on the emperor if the citizens start to starve...
It's not a issue of buttons, but of math. The way foci are calculated doesn't make "spreading the rest out" practicable, as i understand it.
