I've heard I can use Stargates to instantly transport population and minerals from planet to planet. How do I do this? Thanks

Set your fleet travel speed to "Use Stargate"

You simply load them up in a transport and fire away. Wink

Works the same way with minerals too.

Other races simply can't gate cargo do that.

Specifically, if they try, the ship gets there, leaving its cargo behind.

You mean non-IT ships.
"they" confused me a bit, and I guess I was being dense, but I'm sure there are others like me Wink

Btw, IT can't gate around other race's colonists, but they can gate other race's minerals in their ships. If you do ally with someone in your game, you can set aside 5 cargo ships that ship around minerals for him around his empire.

ps - magic's playing an IT in tenderfoot !! Very Happy

Correct.

Of course, this is more that minerals don't actually belong to anybody.

No comment. I have submitted my race file, so this statement has a defined truth value, but I have no wish to tell you it right now. Nothing personal, of course.

I am wondering how you came to this conclusion, however.
