Maybe some Racial technologies should be slightly upgraded:
I'm only talking about the highest technology in the tech tree
-wekkarus wave weapon is slightly less powerful that the best common beam weapon (the wave weapon range is lower, even with a lesser energy dissipation and less energy consumption its not worth using it)
-zenox shield not as good at meridian shield (even if the zenox shield cost only 9 space, while merdian 10, its not worth using it if the fight doesn't last a very long time which is not likely to happen)
-quameno reactor is too heavy and its not worth using it even with the best fuel/energy ratio (i've tried to do some simulations and it always seemed its not the best reactor)
-dahyut hyperdrive is also slightly not as fast as the best common hyperdrive
But for ackadarian,ugnari,kiadin, and some others, their technology is just far superior than the common one. I think it should be the same for the others races
I would like to support amiskatonic's idea of upgrading some racial specifick technologies. This is a big issue because researching for example Wakkarus' wave weapons is in a long term simply not worth. It is a loss of time and money. It is better to research common laser weapons. I thing that race unique technologies should be:
First option: Just better than it's common option (better damage, range, HP, cost, firing rate etc.).
Second option: On par with the best common option, but with upper hand in some areas, and with disadvantages in other (better damage, worse range, bigger cost, better firing rate etc.).
Third option (and in my opinion the worst one, but still acceptable): The same in effect as the best common, but accesible a lot faster (best Zenoxs' shields as good as best common shields, but to research Zenoxs' best shields You need to go through 3 inventions while the best common needs like 11).
