Please remove limitations on number of ships in fleets and in orbit

Posted on Monday, July 28, 2014

I always assumed the limits on the number of ships you could place in a fleet or in orbit was because of the original language/hardware that GC ran on.

Why is there ANY limit on the number of ships I can place in a fleet or in orbit?  Is there any reason to keep this anachronism and the related research?

For reference, the Spanish Armada was 130 sailing ships. I'm not really seeing the need to commit my entire civilization to researching how to give multiple ships the same orders.
