Okay, onto Keith's todo list: "Instead of making it so that you can’t sell resources in betrayal mode, please make it so that the going rate for resources is 1000x lower than it normally would be"

Sounds good to me! I think its a fare trade off.

If I am doing my math right that would be 5cr for every 10,000 units right?

I would have to check, but that sounds about right.  Given the volume of different resources you gain per planet per month, it has to be pretty darn small or else you'll just roll the AIs in the late game in particular.

True I understand that, as if you had a lot of planets it could really add up as you could get thousands of one type of resources each month.

I guess its pretty small if you wanted to go higher maybe make it so you only get 50cr or 25cr or so for every 10,000 units you sell but I guess it could still add up even at 50cr or 20cr for every 10,000 units or so.

Let's take it in increments, I guess -- how about we go with 200x instead of 1000x for now, and we'll see what happens. :)

Also 25CR for every 10,000 seems good to me or like you said by 200x.

Hopefully it is in the ballpark, at least. :)

Current changes to Armada strength are not intuitive. I engaged an armada twice with is starting with 600 power. Knocking it down to around 50% strength I withdraw. Fleet loses 75 power. Engage again, whittle to 50% strength, withdraw, fleet loses 50 power.*

The math is confusing...it would be better if explained.

*Betrayal mode
Life is short. Have fun.

Could you push the queued changes for 2.008 today?
I am kinda waiting for this "stop dispatching if somebody is attacked" toggle ;D...

PS:
Just in case it is trivial it might be reasonable to omit the Federationist Andor party from Betrayal and Invasion games.
Currently it has an empty menu if present in the game...

Also: I just found out that gifting raw resources to races can be exploited for any number of positive influence with races at the current exchange rate.
Just in case you want to nerf this.

And finally: I think there was a change discussed to allow selling of raw resources again in Betrayal games at a greatly discounted price.
Do you still plan to add this?

After that I am happy until the SBR beta starts ;D.

Cheers!
