I'm late to the game, but didn't see this anywhere as a topic. If I relinquish control of colonies by creating a commonwealth, does that free up admin pts to reuse, or do I simply lose them, research, shipyards and the rest?
I'm not aware that commonwealths have any connection to admin points. What typically happens is you spin off those worlds, maybe if you're like me you give them some ships and starbases too, and then despite all that they are obviously the weakest faction now so everyone declares war on them. Then some turns later, they surrender everything back to you and you get your planets back, basically.
Thanks for the reply. I'm referring to the admin points you used to create the colony ships which settled the colonies you've given up to the new commonwealth. Do you get refunded the 1 admin point per planet making you able to colonize more planets. I saw topics elsewhere saying that citizens trained as administrators were capped at 10 leaving it difficult to have enough points on larger galaxies.
The answer is no.
I recommend promoting your administrators to get more admin points. Also research. Even on a ludicrous-sized galaxy, I've never needed more than a few citizen administrators. At a certain point, you're conquering or annexing (via influence) all of your neighbors . . .
