PDCs are not supposed to go orbital :)

As for the question thing, I changed that one. That restriction should also go away at a certain post count.

I shall prove ye wrong!
Replicated! Those light PDCs show alongside fighters in Fighter squadrons window and can be assigned to one.   Hell the PDC can even have mothership assigned, even itself.   And once launched we go to Task group orders and like nothing is wrong click on "No orders possible .  .  .  " selct "No move.  .  " and then click add move like nothing is wrong.   And lo and behold a PDC rising trough atmosphere by sheer force of will (ignorance).  It takes a user to do somehing unexpectedly stupid.  Screen is  attached.
Actually did it with ICBM base right now, just from Task groups.   Accompanied by database error 3078.   

Is restoring backed up Stevefires straight forward copy and paste?

It's not supposed to ;)

The fact that it does is a bug :D

Backups are simply copying the stevefire.mdb and storing it elsewhere. Restore is pasting the backup over the live version. Just don't do it while Aurora is open. :D

are you producing them in fighter factories? 'cause that might be the problem...
To beam, or not to beam.   That is the question

The first one was normally built, the others were SMed.   But as written it can be done even with those which can't be built in fighter factories, like 14k ton ICBM base.   It takes just ignorance.   ;D
They actually seem to be moving somewhere at breakneck 1 km/s.   Probably in search of a bar.

Or did you actually mean training in your capital system is more fuel intensive? If so then why.

When your fleet trains in the Capital system or actually in the system with its Fleet HQ to which it is attached, they move around at 1/4 of their max speed while training. That's why it is more fuel expensive. In an neighbouring system, the crews take the VR suite out and presto, training with 0 fuel expended is achieved.

To deal with obsolete civilian shipping, you can split off a new player race, call it pirates or bureaucratic enforcers, and give it some ships to hunt down and destroy those poorly built ships.

Looks like there is some if clauses missing so PDCs are filtered out when smaller than 500t. Congrats, you found a bug. Welcome to the Men in Black Squadron :-)

There is a way to export full system information. From the  System View window (F9), use the Clipboard button at the bottom. You might need to be in SM mode for it to appear. It'll give you this:

I would say that it would be good, to have it there just in case - even though it might not touch C# Aurora.

I know of this and it is not what I meant. I mean full as in complete. Every moon, every piece of rock, complete with diameter. Other info does not interest me now but may later. Anzway if there is a way to export including diameter then it should be capable of exporting anything and/or everything.

There is no easy way to export that information. Why would you need the diameter of every asteroid? I mean if you're writing a story, you can look up the diameter and hydrosphere and what else of a particular body, you don't need them all. I guess you could ask Steve for the designer mode password that will get you access to the database and you could write a parser that copy/pastes that information out of the database via Access or something like that.

That survey must have been done before the Death Star (or Starkiller Base) went through the system...
Or you found the Xindi testing range...
