Quoting Loupdinour, reply 9Brokering is when you buy Laser I from the Dregin then turn around and sell it to the Torians. With Brokering turned off, only techs that are researched by a race can be sold, any techs purchased by them can't. It's just like the trade goods right now.
Cant see the reason to turn this off personaly but i guess some people might like it..
Its to allow a player to sell the techs to only there allies and not see there enimies show up with the tech.
Isn't having tech brokering turned on kind of like putting DRM on your technology? And from Stardock, no less....
he he.. yes it is, or more along the lines of .. a fleet of ships has no match to a decent lawyer in galactic court?
