Great! I feel it's private corporations that'll get us to space in the long run, so I like using merchantilism as a special government for Humans. Now I'll know how to do it with Legends with the new guide.

Thanks. Now I can assign all those lovely resource bonuses and actually know what values I'm putting in will do what.

They don't build those Star Destroyer reactors like they used to.

Glad to have you back online, lordxorn.

Hey LordXorn, I do not have the heart to tell IGard the power failed on Romulan DiLithium Crystals, do you?
We will keep it a secret in the interest of Inter-Galactic Amity!

Hey Erik, for some reason the link isn't working for me to download the modding guide. Is there another link or am I doing something wrong? I can save it as a HTML but it won't open and I can't seem to save it as a PDF. I've got all the adobe products and readers installed and updated. Any clues why I can't seem to save and open from the attachment link?

Thanks for the help and the Guide :)
