Before I go spend 80 hrs of my life playing a 120-planet map, is tourism somehow related to influence? I see that planets seem to have identical amounts of that resource, aside from where I experimentally built some bonus buildings... one game I just noticed that when I settled my second world (this was as iridians) my homeworld's purple income just split in 1/2 with the 1/2 going over to the other colony. So my q is, are future-age travel agents just the worst scammers in existence? "Here fella, come visit exotic Hyperthalaxia II. It was just settled, and still has that new-colony reek! Don't waste your time on that overpriced trip to Iridium Prime, no... what you really want is to explore the wonderful hallways and turns of Basic Factory on mysterious Hyperthalaxia II"
p.s. I tried looking for a wiki or some sort of manual site having this info but... yea. (the page on wikia.com is a disgrace.)
