Hey there! Great game so far, thank you very much!
Couple of things that I have encountered so far:
1) After passing UP Law to not allow colonization of a planet in another empires' ZOC, I found out that this law means nothing to the computer.
2) After researching Barren World Colonization, I was still unable to colonize barren worlds.
3). Odd bug that only happened once where the trade route line was huge (not as wide as a tile, but close) on the map regardless as to how zoomed in I was. After I came back into the game after a break, it was normal again.
Also, I had a suggestion, would it be possible to add a feature to the Explore ability that would prevent your ships on automate explore from entering into anther empire's ZOC? Right now they just go where-ever and it irritates the NPCs.
Keep up the great work!
