      Fixed bug where manually cancelling an alliance treaty didn't actually change the diplomatic state between the two factions from allied

      Added a better system for collision detection (ie: when the player needs to be informed because a decision must be made like an invasion, battle, etc)

      Balance

      Ship Graveyards are somewhat more common

      Ship graveyards only have 2 pirate attackers instead of 3 now

      Rush cost multiplier reduced from 15X to 10X

      Population exponent to production changed from 0.7 to 1.0

      Population to production multiplier changed from 2.0 to 1.0

      Base resistance on colonies changed from 50% to 25%

      40% to 60% approval has no affect or penalty on production anymore

      Adaptive Farm food reduced from 4 to 3

      Intensive Farm food reduced from 6 to 4

      Lossless Farm reduced from 8 to 5 food

      Cargo (trade) module cost reduced from 27 to 10

      "You are weak" modifier no longer a factor early game

      "You are ripe for conquest" modifier only a factor mid game and on

      Fair trade is now a <= comparison rather than a < comparison

      Map sizes balanced more based on their actual sizes

      Habitable planet creation balanced for larger maps

      Time before first shot lowered from 3 seconds to 1 second

      Min small explosions increased from 1 to 2

      Medium ship explosions decreased from 14 to 5

      Engine trail vertices reduced from 1000 to 100

      Carrier modules reduced from 3 units to 2 units

      Kinetic weapons increased in cost but reduced in mass requirement

      Rebalance on resource required improvements

      Updated Yor Techs and Improvements to limit Yor Population cap to a max of 48 from 60

      Nerfed Prolific Ability from +100% to +50% population on colonization

      Renamed Prolific Ability to Abundant since it was named the same as the Prolific Ability, Nerfed it slightly from +5, to +3 population on colonization

      Bump up Mass of Mass Drivers, kept them flat, so they don’t get heavier, but made them all 10 instead of 6, as it was with miniaturization mass driver races could get a singularity driver down to 3.5 which more or less meant they could out gun anything in the galaxy. As they are now they are a bit heavy for their damage to start, but become better and better as you go up the tree. Even at 10 they might be a bit 0P.

      Bumped up railgun damage 1, and lowered stinger damage by 2

      Changed Agile trait to use flat modifiers



      AI

      AI places less emphasis on capturing resources (fewer constructors running around)

      AI more aggressive at decommissioning old ships

      AI more careful about constructing fleets based on what it can reasonably afford

      AI more likely to build approval buildings

      The AI may contact you to warn abotu another players military buildup, or to provide help if you are at war with them

      AI invasion fleets are better at taking vulernable planets

      AI less interested in distant targets

      AI better at massing fleets to attack enemies rather than one-offs

      AI more effective in using money (should no longer sit on large treasuries)

      AI is now allowed to rush more than once across its empire



      UI

      Total Production tooltip changed to Total Manufacturing where relevant

      Raw research and Raw manufacturing changed to Base research and base manufacturing

      Research rate changed to Civilization Ability tooltip

      A declare war theme now plays when the AI declares war on the player

      The collapsible ship part entries in the Ship Designer no longer blink when collapsing/expanding entries

      The Go To button now works for "Starbase built in your territory" notifications

      Prevented warnings from appearing every time players start a game. They only appear the first time now

      Translation table is now multithreaded to speed up launch time

      Removed some debug messages
