I've created copies of the faction def and planet def files so that I could change some of the startup numbers to be more in line with my style of play. In the past, these changes (starting planet size, starting credits, etc.) took effect as soon as I started the game. With the latest update, even with changes in both the base game folder and the Crusade folder, the changes do not take effect. The defaults are still in effect. Any thoughts? Yes, I renamed the originals and created "new" ones with the old names.
