I'm playing on a large galaxy and have hideous numbers of planets. I made the mistake of researching industrial sector(for the starbase upgrades, really I should probably have stopped after advanced factories) and now everything is autoupgrading, which is bad for me since I am fighting a war and need big scary ships tout suite. Damn Thalans.
I manually canceled the upgrades, which took forever... and the next turn.... THEY WERE BACK!!! (screaming)
Now some would argue that the later industrial techs should be more cost-effective.
I would settle for a way to turn off autoupgrades. I went though options and governors very carefully, and couldn't find a way to do it.
Is there a way and could someone share it with me? This is pretty much a game killing phenomenon.. how do others deal with it?
I tried to forum search, but got no results at all, which implies I'm doing it wrong, but further attempts have hit the wait 30 seconds barrier, which does not appear to decay.
Thanks for all replies,
