I would also like to say thank you for a great game. The game seemed a little simplistic to me when I got it at first but when I got into it I saw how deep and addicting it is. I would especially commend Ironclad on how amazing the UI is. Everything is at your fingertips. Everything has a tooltip that explains exactly what you need to know. The game doesn't make you click on something unless you absolutely need to. They use things like colors to convey certain information on the UI. Every time I play the game the UI simply amazes me so I would like the congratulate the designer. "Elemental: War of Magic" and many other games can certainly learn from the UI designer of this game.
One tiny improvement to the UI may be is to be able set a rally point by right-clicking on a planet when one of your planets is selected. Right now, it's just one unnecessary click to set the rally point.
