I've just started playing TA after years of happy GC and GC2 gaming, but I'm getting confused on a couple of parts with the new non-generic tech trees.
I'm playing a custom race that uses the Yor tech tree (i.e. most techs are only really useful for cybernetic races). If I want to trade my techs with other races, will they want them? Can I use any of the techs I get from other races, or do they have to be part of my tech tree to be used?
Also, when I started trading in my most recent game, I was trading techs with the Thalans, and noticed that one of their techs, Planetary Adaptation, had an asterisk next to it. What does that mean?
