Will the cap be moddable?
Wouldn't it be nice to introduce some techs or at least improvements to raise that cap? Even if I have not much space I can still build a bunch of large towers or a subterranean cave system ...
I like this idea... perhaps something like a unique building for certain races
Or an Arcology Galactic Wonder...
I think a standard.. if you have a 10 quality plant you max out at 10 pop is a cool mechanic. Makes the big planets that much more valuable.
however having unique ways to get around it.... like something in the Malevolent tree... or a race based thing that not everyone gets would be good.
I can see the Torians getting some benefit where they can be like 25% over limit for example..
