Before, switch on govenor of choice, be done with the planet upgrading crap. Now it's pain in the ass.
But good to know that everyone is "so excited" about this tremenous update.
Futhermore, I cannot invade other planets any more: error message: cannot invade no genocide ships
I can't find any documentation on this with google or in any forum.
For me, this update kind of broke a nice game.
Addendum: This happens in the "sandbox version" of the game.
