colonizing other systems
So I've colonized Mars as per the tutorial, but having moved to another system the colonize option isn't allowed. I've survyed the planet and its a oceanic poor, but the colonize stays grayed out in the order menu.... Suggestions?

You will need to refit the colonizer with pods at a starbase. To do so build a starbase on Earth and move your empty colonizer to orbit earth, it will automatically be refitted and you will get a turn message saying so. Alternatively you can build another colonizer.

If you hover over the colonize order it should give you some more info. We just patched the game with new changes, I recommend also restarting Steam client to get the updates..

It's best to build a few Colony Ships in the early game, then hunt down and colonize Terran Worlds, and if you have to settle for Artic, Desert or Oceanic worlds, then colonize the Large/Huge ones.

with terraforming u make those crappy worlds pretty decent. If you find system even with like 9 crappy worlds you can turn it into shipyard system making huge fleet in one turn.
