Of course, all these tips are only good if you REMEMBER to GIVE orders correctly!!

My first batch of colonizers I sent out without any population loaded!! Ooops.

I've done that before, I use the colonize button now, as it auto loads full population, give move orders and colonize orders all with with a couple clicks. The only annoyance is remembering which planet you wanted to colonize if you use the system screen to do it. The Planets screen helps, but I accidentally send colonizers to occupied systems using it occasionally.

The colonizer button is not appropriate if you build colonizers at a new colony and plan on picking up population from an old colony on the way though. I've made that mistake too and loaded up most of the pop off a low pop world by mistake.

As the experienced one I should in all fairness point out you can send all your ships through a warp point at the same time at the risk of some of them colliding. I just bring it up so as not to seem unfair when I use it.
