He got electricity and space enough to fit his dual monitors in the RV, I don't see the problem here.

No. Really?  /sarcasm.

My dad used to say of Scotland "sometimes there are WHOLE DAYS where it doesn't rain!"

Mind you I think we could have done with a little of that in Canberra over the holiday period.  OTOH, yesterday was a different matter.

I spent the Summer in Glasgow one year (1994?) and it hardly rained the whole time - I thought the weather was lovely!  I'm convinced that these stories of rainy Scotland are a disinformation campaign on the part of the locals with the goal of keeping European hordes from over-populating their fair country :)

Had a few days in the highlands last year with barely any sunshine at all. I still really enjoyed the trip :)

50% rain for myself over a one week trip to Scotland.

Isle of Skye is just incredible, I warmly recommend going there (outside of the tourist season).

On the "Do Not Promote" flag:  Is this also known as "The Kirk Option"?

Really liking what we're seeing with diplomacy so far! Seems much more dynamic then VB6, and the first-contact element much more interesting.

I'm liking that diplomacy model - seems like a good simple starting point, but one that should have a lot of options to create good gameplay.

That said, I'm going to OCD about one thing. The formula:
> Diplomacy Points = ((Diplomacy Bonus * 4) + 1) * 100 * (1 – (Target Racial Xenophobia / 100))
should clearly read instead:
> Diplomacy Points = ((Diplomacy Bonus * 4) + 1) * (100 – Target Racial Xenophobia)

(Yes, I'm aware that this is totally irrelevant, and that I'm being obnoxiously anal-retentive)

Diplomacy looks really fun so far. Looking forward to being able to tell aliens to shoo and stake a claim on a system.

I like what I see as well, particularly the fact that REALLY Xenophobic races are going to needs a YEARS long effort to change their mind.  I suppose we'll know a bit more once we see what the menu of other interactions, claims, and the like will be.

One basic question I have is that only one Diplo Module active per system/race?  I can't have multiple stacked diplomatic modules accumulating points?  Also will it be only one diplo mission ship at a time - I mean, I can't have three separate diplomatic ships in three different systems building points for the same race?

You can have multiple qualifying ships with modules but only the commander with the highest rating will be used. I decided it wouldn't be realistic that (for example) you could sent three different delegations to an alien race to make relations improve three times faster. Stacking ships to generate more points would also unbalance all the others mechanics that increase or decrease point. Modules also don't stack on the same ship.
