Alright, what I meant about the special resources was if they were accumulated now instead of being static. The last time I played if you had a starbase mining two Thulium nodes you would only have 2 Thulium available for using in buildings or other items, and if you used them up you had to expand to get more or research better mining techs.
It looks like now they accumulate, so 2 Thulium nodes gives you 0.2 Thulium/turn and creates a stock pile for you to use for various buildings and items. I like this change alot better then before.
How do you change a population's pictures? I created a synthetic empire using the Yor picture and backgrounds, however while I am playing the game I got my first citizen and it had a picture of a human female not a robot, is there something I missed in creating the race?
