Thanks for the replays Auqia. I always watch them all, and really enjoy them. 485 credits/sec is no small amount! : )
I noticed that you don't take advantage of the tier 1 terran population upgrade. I think this is an oversight, and am pretty certain they are worthwhile, as debated heatedly here. In fact, I think almost all of the tier 1 econ techs for TEC & Vasari are worthwhile (a few caveats tho). Some of the other types of planets' population upgrades are debateable.
I noted that you rushed toward TEC tier 6 "Development Mandate", a very valuable tech - giving 4 extra logistic slots for every planet. I also find it very worthwhile to rush toward tier 8 "Pervasive Economy" which gives you a percentage of what everybody spends.
