When I first played this game I thought you could colonise other races systems but you took a diplomatic hit with the race if you did? Am I mistaken or is there a ticky box somewhere I've missed.

Depends - what expansions (if any) do you have installed?

In DW vanilla, I think (it's been a while, I might be wrong), there were no restrictions on colonization. You could colonize wherever you wanted.

RotS and forwards, they instituted "spheres of influence", disallowing colonization by others in the system - or depending on the size of nearby colonies - systems close to the colony.

None

I thought there had been.

Seems like we need a ticky box then along with the diplomatic hit.
