Erm... It already needs research to colonise. Its level 4, so its pretty high up. I am currently testing the AI as we speak, but I imagine, once they have researched it, they will colonise.@ jfp3
Planetary bonuses will come, the next update will be both my mods in one pack.
An interesting idea for the advanced bombing tech, but so far I haven't seen a weapon that is more effective against a certain planet type, but I will keep it in mind.
To the point on 'using up' the asteroids, I'm not sure if thats possible yet, so we'll have to hold that back for the moment.
Thanks again for the comments, keep them coming. You never know, the next update/mod I make might have your ideas in it (with credit to you, of course
). Any other planet types people are interested in? So far I'm thinking a Barren planet, and a Forest world.
