Must be something to do with that. Which also reminds me that we don't have alternate leader names.

Thanks for the report.

Xeno-Engineering, Improved Solar Panels, and Autorepair Systems join Subspace Networking as lacking any 'flavor text' for the technology.

Minor text hiccup. When checking a strike fighter on a already built Tinker Carrier, It is telling me I have "Antimatter missiless". Doesn't appear on the shipbuilding pane or against bombers on a captured Ashdar Fleet Carrier. I didn't notice this prior to antimatter missiles, so don't know if it is present for fusion or nuclear missiles. Haven't checked against other races either honestly either. So pretty niche case presentation.

The damage done by Interceptors, Bombers and Strike Fighters depends on the best beam and missile techs you have, and the description for each of these small craft lists which weapons it is using (beams for an interceptor, missiles for a bomber, and both for a strike fighter). The same text appears in the ship designer and in the ship status screen. I'm not sure I understand what you feel is wrong here.

Antimatter missiless not antimatter missiles. Look at the spelling of it. The plural form is incorrect.

Thanks Chasm! That was exactly what I meant. Apologies for not clarifying that point in the first place. What can I say? It made sense in my head...

Human Tech: "Powered Armor" does not display the Assault Marines unit that it unlocks.
Analog to ship and ship parts it should be visible there right?

The mouseover text for Spice Mongers population is currently 'Spice_mongers'. Possibly should be cleaned up.

Thanks for the report. Some of these are dead code, but no reason they can't be grammatically correct. :D

Organs store

Organ stores

But in the context of this sentence, organ doesn't store - Organ uses.

Organ uses an array of cells to generate
+
Organ uses an array of cells to store
=
Organ uses an array of cells to generate and store

Only works if the same array of cells is used for both purposes, of course.
Munin's change is also correct, but has a slightly different meaning (the array of cells is only used to generate, but not to store - the organ stores somewhere else).

It depends on how you read it, but in any case the sentence can be more cleanly written.
