This mod contains a number of changes which I feel add diversity to the races in the game. The idea is to make each race different enough, that a player will find it interesting to replay as each different race. This description is for version 1.0.16-02 (note serial 02) released August 25, 2012. Future versions will include more races, and hopefully more stuff.Disclaimer

USE WITH VERSION 1.0.16 through 1.0.18 ONLY. As soon as a new version is released I will update the mod.
This content is not Amplitude's, so this mod is installed at your own risk.
Text changes are for English language only. The mod will work in other languages but the English text will be present.
There is currently no way to modify existing icons. Once this is available, I will make the proper orange racial icons where needed.

Contents

Includes the community bug fix and balance mod serial 04.
Horatio
Reduced size for seed modules (unlocked with Efficient Shielding), removed Atmospheric Shield

Feeble Warriors now additionally gives a -10% on invasion strength.
Advanced Optics Lab now works best on Arctic; Arctic planets now generate more research than Ocean.
