IT doesn't need IFE, and shifting hab all the way to the edge wastes points (edge values never occur). With the points you get from that, you should be able to make weapons cheap. Additionally, I think reducing the mine efficiency and getting more mines and factories operated would be a good thing.

The reason I took IFE is so I could get the warp 8 drive. I plan not to reasearch propulsion at all, but I will try your idea of reducing mine efficiency. remember though, that I am using it in duels, so I need to expand fast but inexpensivly. Thus, ISB and the IFE, CE combo. With that, I can get a gate up in one/two turns after colonizing. And you are right about the mines.

Especially in duels, the importance of having weapons cheap can not be stressed enough. The other things I mentioned would be concessions so that you can have it cheap again.

Regarding the off topic HG duel race - I'd take 10/3/13 mines instead and pump the gained points into research - in a duel you don't need to worry about long term minerals

Very true, I will try that. But what about the Hab. ranges?
In a real game it is year 17 and these are the planets:
I know 113
72 are red
11 are yellow
30 are green (does not count HW's)

statistics of greens:
10-20%=3
20-30%=9
30-40%=10
40-50%=4
50-60%=2
60-70%=1
70-80%=1
80-90%=0
90-100%=1

With initial planets, your results should be similar to those of the Humanoids (because your hab is just slightly narrower and shifted to the right). That's what I like about the immunity+narrow design BTW - the planets you get, even if they have poor initial hab, can usually be terraformed to be very very nice. For example, in the testbed for the 15% PGR race I mentioned in this thread most recently, some of the planets had habs like -2% (91%). How cool is that?

Yeah, when actually in a game I like to plug the data into a spreadsheet which contains a habitability calculator. Why? So I can make it tell me what I can expect the hab to be once you have, say 7/7/11 or 11/11/15 terraforming tech....

When you are planning a *new* race, you might like to have a play around with this fantastic little tool which gives you a pretty good idea of what you can expect your race to find (with and without terra) http://home20.inet.tele.dk/craebild/hab_range_tool/habrange_ cr.html

(theres a heap of great stuff on that site by the way, including a fuel usage / trip optimisation tool - I think the site is maintained by a regular here, but I don't recall exactly who)
