Hi Retreat1970! The last two games I played with you mod I experienced something strange with colony ships. The computer was constantly generating 6-8 new colony ships without my ordering them. It didn't seem to build them, rather they seemed to come, fully constructed, from "off Board"/outside the galaxy. The first time it happened I was checking on the progress of a colony ship I did order. It was under construction on my home world/empire's capital. Along with this ship, six other completed, and unordered, colony ships were listed. And they were in flight, grouped like a fleet, near the edge of the galaxy, moving in towards my home world?! They were in a very empty section of space, no star systems, much less colonies for several sectors around them (I play irregular shaped galaxies). Projecting their flight path backwards there was no place they could have come from. Through out both games, groups of 6-8 fully constructed colony ships would appear every 5-10 game years. I was distracted with game play, so I never witnessed any more arrivals, or construction, of these ships. I would find them listed on my home world. I'm 40+ years into my latest game with your mod, using the same settings, and so far there have been no unexpected colony ships. I've used your mod for my last six or seven games, and have played several dozen games (vanilla and various mods) over the last two years, and I've never seen this before. I found it unusual, but actually pretty cool-I had a constant supply of completed colony ships when I wanted to colonize a planet. It was their apparent fully completed appearance from no where I found odd. Not sure what to make of it, if anything, but thought I would pass it on. Happy gaming!
