    I especially like the idea of having limited service for species

    The only issue I can see with any of that is that it's going to take weeks to reach us. :(

    The 1.5 patch is a patch. There will also be a DLC.

    A small galaxy you have there. I believe your sectors function better when you have several small sectors, not one gigantic sector.

    Did the small galaxy as kind of a test thing.

    I disagree on the sector issue:
    1. The larger a sector is, the more access it has to minerals and energy, so it will be more able to build tile improvements
    2. Having fewer, larger sectors (I usually try to have one large, but sometimes I can't because it'll get disconnected) makes it easier to have governors for all of them, since you have a cap on number of leaders

    Only thing I can imagine more sectors is better at is increased specialisation, but that doesn't really seem viable to me

    More bigger sectors is clearly the answer.

    Picked Stellaris up again after a while. Got a game where the War in Heaven started. I’m looking forward to that as I haven’t experienced it before. I’m pretty annoyed, though, that the War in Heaven apparently caused both by vassals to free themselves and my federation partner to leave the federation.

    I was in that situation

    one of the empires declared war on one of the guys in my federation
    they had like 200000 fleat power so I couldn't beat them in battle so I basically gave up the game

    Anyone know when the new patch is to be dropped? I looked at the PDX website, but I couldn't find it.
