A re-roll button hadn't even occurred to me, but that's brilliant.  Thank you, Victor!

Every game that creates a world or universe like this needs a re-roll button. Civ has one. I wish ISG did.

That’s great and all but I still need a ‘this unit is out of supply because…..’ tool tip - it should not remain a mystery how logistics work

I'm super-pumped for Vic's roadmap, especially regarding future DLC's, but 'geek is right:  Logistics remain frustratingly nigh-incomprehensible.  It continues to be one of, if not *the*, single biggest complaint I come across regarding Shadow Empire.  I'm always baffled that the issue doesn't do better in Victor's occasional community votes, though I'm guessing perhaps not a lot of newbies hang out there. 


Don't get me wrong, I genuinely am excited for where he's planning to take this game.  But a more intuitive logistics system -- or at least one with better tooltips (or even tooltips at all) -- would be most welcome.

Update dropped yesterday: 


https://www.matrixgames.com/news/shadow-empire-major-update-v121d

https://www.vrdesigns.net/?p=2225




It includes numerous AI improvements (it's better at using air forces now), Alien Critters and Free Folk Marauders actually fight each other now, and you can finally give your Research Director a specific focus for when you're missing a specific discovery.
