When I'm not working or moderating Stack Apps, I have a tendency to meddle in bug reports on Meta or take part in writing userscripts for the Stack Exchange network which add features that sometimes get implemented natively. Here's a few you may be interested in:

I've also been known to occasionally break (and sometimes fix!) the Data Explorer, and to busy myself with maintaining the Election Statistics page.

comment Wake a sleeping trade convoy
Ah ha, I had looked there but apparently missed the Civilian Units option. That is indeed easier.

comment Is Alien aggression global or is it on a per-nest basis?
It does keep track of a global alien opinion, but I don't know if that's used for hostility or just for determining which alien units spawn. Oddly, the Transcendence victory quest sets Aliens.SetOpinionForPlayer(quest:GetOwner(), AIAlienOpinionTypes.ALIEN_OPINION_VERY_HOSTILE);, which seems odd, so the global opinion might just influence spawning after all.

comment Why can't I build the Beacon
@MarkFitzgerald Yeah, it's a special feature of planetary wonders, as Michael mentions in his comment. They each have special conditions as they apply to victory for (presumably) balancing purposes, although the wonder for the "Promised Land" victory is particularly involved, which is something to keep in mind before attempting that path.

comment How far can trade convoys and trade vessels travel?
Alien Biology applies the perk to Worker units, but Alien Hybridization applies it to all units (and gives them +10 Healing in miasma). I'm not 100% sure which applies to the trade routes, but I think it's Hybridization, if only because it's a lot further down the tech tree (Transgenics leaf)
