I for one would subscribe to the newsletter for a pen and paper rocket propelled grenade!

Well, there are rockets and mortars and flamethrowers in the game... :D

I wish financial centers were transportable like other installations are.  Then you could just fill up your terraformed but mineral-less worlds with financial centers built elsewhere, and plunk a wealth bonus leader on them.  Pretend the whole planet is a giant call center, cold call selling products made elsewhere to markets all over your empire. ;)

I can see it now...

"Sir! The invading aliens have scoured Telemarketing II to bedrock!"

"Well, they should have abided by the No Call List."

Is it possible to see which asteroids, planets, moons have had completed geo survey team planetary survey from the System map?  Cause I want to be able to quickly check which places I have already done geo survey, and remove them from my colony list to reduce clutter.

I suppose I could just rename the ones that have had geo survey team completed.

Only way I know to do it is from the task force screen.

I see the Star Trek method as "a jack of all trades, master of none". It can do a lot of things okay, but none really really good.

On the other hand, the dedicated ship concept requires more facilities to put your ships into the field.

Might have to edit the database on that one. Or copy the vanilla stevefire.mdb from the zip over the existing one.

Trying to reinstall after some 3201 bugs, got
!   C:\Users\Michael\AppData\Local\Temp\ Cannot open C:\Users\Michael\AppData\Local\Temp\
    The system cannot find the file specified.

I thought I could just start over, cause I thought I did something wrong in the installation, but I keep getting bugs when I try to replace aurora.exe with a fresh copy.

How do you start over if you bugged something?

That usually happens when the OS clears temp files. Try saving the zip to your desktop or another directory and see if the error persists.

After playing some STO... It would be nice if the officer positions could be filled by the same person. I.E. Medical and science are filled by one person. Probably at some reduced effectiveness.

Will the rank abbreviations be editable?
