1) Love the new fleet settings.
2) The description of the phototropic species in the 'pedia has a weird final sentence. It should read "They do not benefit from growth specials". Also, is it the size or the brightness of the star that is important? The modifiers are 'Bright star" or 'Dim star' and the 'pedia mentions size...
3) Self-sustaining species description has a badly misspelled word "sustenance". BTW which species are self-sustaining?

GAME CRASHING BUG: Load up the save attached, click the fleet at Synnax. Crash.

ETA: Started another game, and a crash happened in the same situation (defeated a Sentry, click on fleet that did it, crash)

ETA 2: If I don't click the fleet immediately after it defeats a Sentry, the game goes normally and I can click on the fleet later.

I don't see what's wrong with: "Growth specials do not benefit them."

Currently bright stars are big stars in FO. There are no big dim stars or small bright stars.
Though you are right, we should probably pick one aspect.

What's the deal with the mining focus (on Lithic specials and asteroids)? It's useless since there's no mineral resource and it doesn't increase industry.

It does increase industry-- look at the tooltip.
Still it was supposed to increase industry significantly.
Long term i will consider using it as a strategic resource type thing.

revision 5094
"returned the mining focus bonus to production to being significant."

In my game, it LOWERED industry nearly by 1/2! Didn't look at the tooltip, though.

Well, that's always a possibility with the current implementation, since the production focus gets different bonuses from the mining focus.
