Btw, did you do anything to the techtree/components? If not, and if you plan to, with what kind of philosophy you plan on approaching the redesign/tweaks?
Very little, I've done modifications to speed (slowed down) and toned down the different race techs for some balance issues, added 3 new late game wonders, Galactic Senate, Secret Police HQ and Imperial Palace. Each give 50% development, so nothing new there. Just some added spice.
As for philosophy, I want the differences between races to be subtle, but manifesting themselves mid to late game. Same with governments. I really disliked the "Way of X" governments, so they are out - way too overpowered. Here every bonus is paired with a disadvantage, like in real life. But some are better than others, as it should be.
And hope you both enjoy it :)
