I have a serious problem with the population gap. My first planet has 8 pop cap, all of the other planets has 3/3 population.
I cant raise the population cap, even with building farms. My race isn't synthetic.
What should I do?
In Retribution, you actually build cities to raise your population cap.
So it works like this.
1) A city will raise your cap. The maximum population is your planet class (which is raised by the various terraforming techs).
2) A city requires 4 food to build. The food is global, it can come from any of your planets.
3) Food is creating by building farms.
So your halfway there. You build the farms for food, now build a city and your off!
