A couple of things I noticed from 1.3 and wanted to ask about:
1) If you scavenge a transport you get the soldiers, is this intended? I assume the same happens with colony ships though I haven't tried yet.
2) It seems that the Economy and Research projects are now useless, as even on a pure manufacturing planet you do better by just switching the slider to research or wealth. Is that just in preparation for elimination of the planetary wheel, or a balance oversight?
