Re: Yet another first impressions post

Would it make more sense to you if the Copy button in the workshop said New instead? It would still work the same way though -- duplicate the design. Yeah, i think so. I think a new player, not knowing exactly what that button did would be more likely to try to use it with that label, and end up be...

Thanks.

I've read some of the other threads now. No need to comment on the issues/concerns that you've commented on elsewhere.

Re: City Sprawl

Independent of that, the economy panel will eventually have the ability to reassign colonists and change production, very similar to the colonies screen in Master of Orion 2.

Re: Can't start the game
