Ok, in GalCiv I the starbases were a huge boost. Are they still in GCII? Got the game today and I wonder about this circle around the starbases - does that mean only planets within that circle profit from the starbase?
If that's the case I'm somewhat stunned, as building starbases _ON_ resources would only make sense in your own sectors. OK, one could build a starbase to avoid another player using it but that's half the fun
And one more thing, I have one starbase (morale) with two planets in range. There is one additional mining module but both planets say "no starbase bonus" in their details
