Q: I am wondering about when it is better to convert a world to 'Core' status, even if it has little to no support, vs keeping it as a Colony. What are people's thoughts on this?
- Pro: Core world population can grow, allowing you to expand.
- Con: Converting a Core world that has little to no support will generate very little manufacturing capacity, research, money etc. May even be a money pit due to maintenance.
- Mixed: Easier to harvest special resources (Nanites, Monsantium etc). Later on with Orbital tech these can be gotten even if it's still a Colony.
