I think we just found Eden...

...except that there wasn't any heavy industry in Eden IIRC.

1 Well, THIS is a happy development.  It's like Orion without the artifacts.  How far along were you when you found this gem?

2 It was the end of the game. The Bulrathi had only one planet. My Sakkras were fully developed and at the end of their research trees, with about 24 planets.

3 Is that without planetary upgrades?

4 Based on the 'Scout ships explore a new star system" and a lack of colony domes...I would say 'yes.'

Yeah, that was how it looked when I found it. If I had tried to develop it with the technology I had, it would have become Gaia, and topped out at 300 million population.

Plus I had Robotic Controls VII. So the production would have been titanic.

6 Just to make clear: that's what the random galaxy-maker created. No one else had it before I found it.

7 Wow! I don't think I have ever seen such a gem of a planet. Terraformed and upgraded planets can match of exceed that, but as a raw planet? Amazing.

But not finding it until the end of the game? Now that is just a horrible, horrible tease from the RNG. Just think what you could have done with that as your second planet....

Hmmm. Now I am craving some MoO action myself. It has been a while since I played. And Sakkras sound pretty good to me.
