I just bought GalCiv3 Crusade, have never played any GalCiv game before, and am totally baffled by it. I can't seem to figure out how to do things that seem like they should be quite easy, like growing a planet. It says I need food to build a city, I build a farm, and it still says I need more food. I find an alien race, and sometimes I can talk to them, sometimes I can't.
This game truly seems ridiculously opaque.
Where can I go for some good info on how to actually do shit in this game?
