Human race with home planet of marshy swamp planet cannot colonize other swampy marsh planet. Why?

That's not a new thing - you can colonize the union of the dominant race's (for each planet) default colonizable planet type(s) plus those that your tech allows. Although humans can start on a Marshy Swamp, which was colonized at some point in the distant past, they don't start out being able to build a colony ship that can successfully start a new colony on one.

I realize this can be a bit odd and we have discussed doing it differently in the future, but right now that is how the game works, so it's by design.

Regards,

- Erik

Thinking about it though, humans that are already on a marshy swamp planet should know very well how to colonize one.  If they're limited to continentals, then that's really what they should start on.  That's definitely confusing for new players.
