Orders may be given at any time (paused or not) and are queued to be processed in subsequent turns. Player(s) may request a pause at any time, but pauses only occur and the ends of turns. Current thinking is that a turn should be somewhere between 3 and 5 seconds. The stated time of 3-5 only adress...

:?: but doesn't it already work kinda like that? you have two projects one fully funded one half funded, then when you finish the fully funded one the half funded one gets the leftover RP for that turn doesn't it? No. You missed the point that B depends on A in that situation. RP are spend at one t...

I think that's a matter of taste. I, for instance, would say that you shouldn't be able to spend left over research points to a depending research project.

Geoff, i'm just wondering why are there now two areas with the category buttons. The one you have marked and the one aligned into two rows. Or is it just the same moveable window and you showed us two possible positions of that one window?

I would like to introduce a new thinking. What's about using a complete production screen, rather than using the main window with galaxy map and sidepanel. I guess it would make it easier to design a good UI!? Or was there a design decision in the past about it, which i might have missed?

Wow, very long reply. ;) But, my thinking is that there should be some minimal pop. It's quite odd if you fly around and drop one person per planet, and say after it the rest arrives per migration. Colony module should come with 1 pop. To prevent starving right away, you usually would feed starving ...

I think utilae's choice is already quit good, but not perfect. :P Lithovore is good but overestimated, democracy is much more important. I don't have all the points in my mind, but this choice leaves also 3 points for +2 research. This is proven to be the best combo for huge galaxies amoung friends ...
