The early years of the Play station 4 Stellaris

When the game first launched it was a mess. the resource shortage with the lack of border expansion made the game almost unplayable. the planets where small and were lacking in the housing department. only a few housing had resources.

Expanding your borders was dependent on two things. Your empires population growth, and your station cap. Population growth was also limited by your planet cap. When the game first came out you were heavily limited in what you can do. from your planets to how many main stations you can build.

In later updates and expansions this was corrected. The planet and station caps turned into Empire sprawl. Empire sprawl is how much your empire can effectively control at once. you can expand your Empire sprawl with Administration offices, they take commercial goods and turn them into empire sprawl. Commercial goods can be made in industrial factors. those take minerals to create them.

Minerals in the early stages of the game were hard to come by. now they are a base material. it seems to be everywhere now. Making it easy to work on the planet infrastructure, as it became easy to come by. new building materials were added to game. Alloys were added for space infrastructure and ship building.
