Ok so lower my moral too 75% or so and up taxes. that would up my treasury definately. Would that also up my production output?
Also I'd like to say the Mind control centers work wonders. Got one on every planet. Since the Economic suggestion I have made a total of 5 terror stars for my war efforts against the Iconian refugee and the Dogs of Razaka (dog race, very powerful, Arch rival). I have an alliance with the Yor, The Yiutopia (Ant race, Not so powerful but extremely organised and strong production capabilities.) and the Drengin. Their mistake though, their soon to be conquored by influence or by force (yor by force, i'll save them till last though when I have enough terror stars. I really can't be stuffed aquiring planet with more than 8 billion people).
I noticed that all AI's seem intent on using Beam, weapons. In harder levels do they eventually use other types of weapons coz i'm wasting space with Armour and Point defence systems.
Oh another question about race setup. If i have an overpowering influence, is there really any need to have loyalty upgrades? otherwise i'd up my diplomacy level so i can Aquire technologies, ships, bases and planets cheaper.
PS. I really need to stop practising on normal level .
