When you have the option to decrease the global requirements do you still increase you terraforming rating. It seems like this can cause players to run away with thier production and control when the game ends.

The increase/decrease global requirements effect only allows you to play Projects that you otherwise wouldn't be able to due to global parameter levels. For example, if a Project requires 0C to play and the actual temperature is -2C, you can play the Project anyway. All related bonuses and TR rating gained from the Project is still earned.

There are no Projects in the game that reduce global requirements.

Thematically your engineers has developed techniques to be able to build the projects earlier/later than they could before.

Note here that it adjusts the requirement (not the parameter itself) up to 2 steps, for temperature that is 4C, so you could play the 0C requirement card at -4C.

Correct. Just don't confuse him with the use of the word "move". The Global Parameter markers never adjust downward.

I feel like we're overlooking a larger issues - the cards that let you evaluate global parameters as +/- their current position DO NOT actually move those parameters. It is purely to allow playing the card when you wouldn't normally due to that global parameter. They never allow you to actually change the parameter as part of their effect and therefore grant no TR.

To me "move the requirement" is different than "moving the global parameter marker", but I guess it could be interpreted different ways. I edited my post to try to make it more clear.

Yes, that is what I was trying to get across. I misused the word requirement instead of parameter in my previous post, but I think it still stands.
