Got the beta 5 update installed. Yay!
Started a new game, Terrans. When I colonized my first world, decided to go Pragmatic at the ethical dilemma. For my ideology, I picked the trading one. The tooltip/hovertext said it would increase my trade licenses by 1. I got a trading ship at Earth, but no trading license. Flying the freighter to an alien world simply resulted in the "no licenses" message.
Is the text broken, the effect broken, or do I simply misunderstand what it's supposed to do?
