I decided to try out the synthetic life form to see what unique things they get. After researching Xeno Combat tech, the Generate Propaganda project showed up. The description says "+25 influence to planet". After completing the project, the planetary influence only grew by the standard growth amount instead of growth plus 25. Is this broken or am I wrong about what it does?
In addition, I'm not sure if the +BC and +research projects actually work because it is really hard to tell if the amounts are actually added to the totals.
