Just a few small suggestions...I apologize if any of these have already been discussed First, I think that droids are a bit too cheap for the benfits they provide...should be more expensive for how helpful they are, or more rare. I'm still only on the third misson. (crashing during saves and loads ...

I use winmm within starship tycoon (using C++), for some timing related code. Maybe it conflicts? I ran some tests and yeah.... Multiple simultaneous uses of that LIB from different processes are ......at best.....un-reliable. IT's more like a "legal" hack that MS doesn't/can't get rid of...

If you have version 2.4, and need the patch, here it is. Just unzip the file into your starship tycoo...
