: You basically get a 'bonus' for having a certain PI per planet. You also get more CP for more planets, and more points for the appropriate tech levels. Both the bonus points and the tech points are log or partial-power modified; that is, as you get more AP/CP it will take more levels/PI to get the next AP/CP. With the way things are set up, the limit for the PI bonus is 45/planet, and this will net you 7 AP and 10 CP. Having 4 planets with 35 PI each will get you the same bonus, to give a really rough example of how that scales. Industry/Efficiency levels will already begin to stop giving you an instant AP/CP, but soon will take 2-3 levels per point. Fog
: Despite that you can't see them, there *are* active NPR's. Not many, but enough that if you don't use these opening rounds, you may find yourselves surrounded by potential hostiles. And this time, I made most NPR's pretty likely to become hostile Asteroids
: Are mine-able. I have a table and everything. FYI. You'll need to make another 'asteroid' hazard check though, and it takes an action.Exploration
: Is separate than just "flying into a system." I'm working on a table for this. It'll likely be modified to yield results based on system type.Random NPC's
: Should start showing up when you fly to new systems next round.
