Really it should be done with effects as part of an early industry tech and/or whatever future implmentation of races we end up having, along with all the other meter bonuses currently in tables.
Are you saying that without racial bonuses or technologies, that there should not be focus dependent industry bonuses for planet size? Or are you saying that future implementation of race will ensure that the bonuses are always focus-dependent?
If the former, that doesn't seem like an ideal solution. It should be advantageous to set foci to industry on small/tiny worlds in all
situations, otherwise there are situations in which the decision to set focus is impaired.
yes there IS a reason. because who says that bonus-industry is enough? especially regarding small population on such planet.
No, there isn't a reason. When you take into account the rest of the planets in the empire, there is no reason that a player would set a small planet to industry instead of
a medium planet. Because if an equal bonus to the industry meter can be obtained by switching focus on a Tiny world as on a Medium world, there is no reason to choose the Tiny world instead, since there is no additional
bonus to the industry meter beyond the normal focus change. If the bonus is focus-independent, it is simply not an reason to change focus.
So yes, there might be a reason to set a Tiny planet to industry, but no more than there would be to set it to farming, mining or research.
