Just came back to this game after a couple of years not playing. I have a class 22 planet and I thought I'd turn it into a big money maker by making it my economic capital and filling it with banks. Economic buildings. I've built about 7 of them so far and I looked and am not making much money at all. Maybe each bank adds 15% but 15% of what? From the look of my income, 34 bc, the base income of this planet must be tiny. I'm still doing pretty good because I have so many colonies of Torians (22). I don't see why the base income of the planet isn't prominently displayed if that's the number that all future numbers will be based on. It's like the game wants me bamboozled by the complexity into making foolish choices that don't make much sense.
If I were to choose my economic capital again, what number would I look for. A big planet would probably be good but it has to have a decent economic base, right?
