Not as far as I am aware. Whether they share similar living conditions more affects how many of them you can fit on your worlds without overharvesting. But you should always be able to fit some without overharvesting.

I thought they shared uncommon living space. E.g. Humans use the temperate zones, and the Tarka use tropical or whatever they're suited to? And Liir use oceans.

So basically, if they share enviroment they have a bigger impact on the overharvest than if they don't share it? Good to know. I shall certainly take the time to experiment with Zookeeping given the chance. Usually I get so wound up in interracial wars that I couldn't incorporate any foreign races even if I had the research. :(

So true - not many things beats knowing that your huge mining fleet will leave a (near) useless dustball behind for whomever dares colonize it. :insane:

Anybody else get the vibe that the new ultra virus of doom is somehow related to the liir virus used against the suulka

Will we be able to use some kind of scorched earth(or other planet ;p ) doctrine depending on what govt. we are? Because when my junta realizes they're not going to stop the 100 hostile DNs heading for our outermost colony,maybe instead of just abandoning the world, they also blow up a bunch of nukes,or release a bunch of deadly nanobots or a few plagues on the way out :twisted: effectively taking the planet out of play for a few turns. Also doing a lot of Biosphere damage. Btw is biosphere naturally regenerating, can you fix it, or once it's gone, is it gone?

Well that depends on your view point with the deliberate famine they caused. Of corse some of us might have a little bias. (heh)

Well I dont think we're in europe anymore either... Though space nazis is pretty scary to think about! But if we're talking WW2 when the Japanese realized they were losing their new asian claims they would frequently poison water supplies upon their retreat,usually with makeshift things, like dead people, and not sure about this one, but I think they might have also opened a few of their bio research facilities up. And lets not get started on the Vietcong, a mouse couldn't squeak in those guys tracks without getting blown sky high. But from your response i'm guessing no and going on my merry way bout this one :) .
