Maybe the Shadow are cheating & hacking the Credits into the game at some point!

I've had this problem as well. In my current game in a level 32 medium-size sector, the Shadow are level 100, have over 300 million credits, over 90 planets and around 400 ships! At one point they advanced in technology level three times in one minute!

Shadow has about 150x as many ships as any other race. So many more planets, the colony ships just keep coming and coming. Reminds me the zerg from starcraft.

As of v1.019 Shadow still seem broken. No other AI race can compete with them and, just as Geroj pointed out, all races can be at war with them and they still dominate. While I appreciate these recent attempts to balance them by toying with their mineral production, I suspect there is something broken more than just other AI races not dealing great with their stealth.

There must be some kind of exponential growth feedback loop hidden somewhere. In my last Shadow game on v1.018, I thought the bug might have been eradicated. Shadow and four other races all had about 17 planets and equal tech levels, for long enough that I thought they might finally be balanced.

Once they broke past having roughly 20 planets, however, the cycle began again. Massive, unstoppable expansion and swift advancement to lvl 100 Tech, probably due to their deluge of credits.

If the same thing is happening in v1.019, it sounds like their rebalancing is just changing the threshold at which they bust through the ceiling, not removing it.
