Listen Phhead I don't know why you are raging about the resource thing. The old option had 4 settings: Low, Medium, High and RANDOM. So you could still have random option.
IMO not only should it be brought back, but expended to do it by type (Ice, Volcanic, Terran, Neutrals.. etc) and another option for Low, Medium, High and Random militia. Honestly random militia pisses me off more so than random resources.
