Did I heard right Erik that you can manually order a Civilian ship, if need be? This seems nothing, but sometime for a time-critical resource, this can be a life-saver.

And another question. When you go to war with someone, are the resources they reserved on your world going back to your own pool? I always found that illogical and very frustrating they don't (in DW1), and especially when said resource was also in flux for your empire!

You can't take control of civilian ships, but you do have a better lever to indicate prioritization and influence the "pull" part of the equation for prioritization.

I'll check on this, not sure off the top of my head, but a lot of the resource handling logic is new in DW2 and works much better.

Thanks, Erik!

BTW, that link didn't lead to the reveal video. I found it here: https://www.twitch.tv/slitherinegroup/video/889911795

I've watched the stream a bit and one question bugs me too much: are planets moving or will move on orbits in future? It was very immersive in DW1 to watch on some solar systems.
