Thanks for the patch Stardock.
Ai now finally colonize planets early and Diplomacy Skill matter now.
Also like the chances to the research buildings. I would go further and implement the same numbers for manufacturing and economy.
And then let us build higher tier buildings without going through the lower tier. So researching higher tier buildings would be valueble.
Also found this: If you set the resource frequency on uncommon or rare, than Elerium is missing on the map.
