The most common sector type besides gas is water, but this is
misleading since there are so many water sectors on Class M's (in
addition to those on waterball planets). Running a close second is
land terrain, which is found on just about every planet type. Forest
is probably the least common, making it an unusual and often strategic
addition to your list of preferences (remember, you pay for both the %
compatibility and an overhead cost for each of your sector prefs).
Mountain is convenient to have since it is usually high in resource
content and found in small amounts on many planets, and ice is also a
common choice.

I've also noticed that taking a combination of desert and a choice of
mountain, land and/or ice in your sector prefs somehow entices the
server into making your race a "methane breather" some of the time (or
maybe it's just bad luck). The problem with this is that most planets
will be extremely incompatible with your race, meaning your pop will
grow very slowly and often leave you vulnerable to invasion. You'll
find yourself at a rather large disadvantage until such time as you or
an ally can build atmospheric processors (at a pretty high tech level,
so it takes a while). Some games (with my strong approval) are phasing
out the possibility of methane breathing races except by request.

This is not to say that you should always choose water, land, and
mountain as your sector prefs. In many cases, alliances are made based
on sector incompatibility. In other words, a morph who loves water and
forest would rather ally with a desert/mountain/land loving normal
than another water loving normal, so don't be afraid to choose an
unusual sector type. It may enable you to exploit planets which other
races wouldn't mind giving away.

If you make a few life style changes you shulod be able to lose some weight if you need to lose weight. However, your height is determined mainly be genetics. This is a system that has worked well for me for overall weight loss and fitness, and several friends have also been successful with it.1. Eat three nutritious meals and three snacks everyday. Cut out junk food. You probably need about 1500 to 1800 calories a day. Many people make the mistake of not eating enough when they try to lose weight and then become discouraged.2. Drink lots of water at least 8 big glasses as day. Lots of water is essential. Stop drinking soda and other drinks with useless calories. Eat fresh fruit instead of fruit juices the juices are very high in calories.3. Begin a simple weight lifting program at home or at a gym. Ordinary household items (tins of soup, for example) can actually serve as weights for beginners. Buy yourself a good weight lifting book for women. Actually the dummies series of books has done a rather good one.4. Walk, walk, walk. Buy yourself a pedometer and aim for 10,000 steps a day.5. Record everything you eat and all your exercise to make sure you have a calorie deficit . Two of the sites I've included will help you do that. Basically buring more calories than you take in leads to weight loss. You need a deficit of 3500 calories to lose one pound.6. If you drive, do less of it and park at the back of the parking lot instead of close to the door. Always use stairs never the elevator or escalator.7. A mini stepper is an easy piece to equipment to have at home and gives great results. I bought mine at a second hand store for $4. even if you use it for a minute or two several times a day it can make a big difference.I hope these thoughts help. You can do this. Good luck with it.
