How much support does a Core word need?

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?

Reasons Pro/Con:

  • 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.
