Just got this game, and I am wondering if there is any way for me to view my relations with each alien race or planet? (It's not clear to me whether it's a planet by planet rating or a race by race rating). Thanks!
Oops, forgot to specify that I have Space Rangers 2.
You can go to the Galaxy Map and right-click any system to see your relations with those planets (they're shown with happy/neutral/frowny/angry faces).
Your relations with species depend on your starting species and class, though individual planets can be happier or less-happy with you than their racial category might make you believe. So, if the Maloqs think you're the greatest thing in the galaxy, but you fail a mission for a Maloq planet, that individual planet won't be keen on you.
You can also piss off entire systems- so if you play pirate and kill lots of civilian ships in a system, you will eventually start attracting military attention.
It's a pretty complex system (which I appreciate)!
