Is specializing planets still a good idea?

Posted on Friday, May 19, 2017

I have really started to get into Crusade. I'm enjoying discovering many of the differences. However, I have not played a game to anywhere near completion. I have a basic question:

For anyone who has played significant time on Crusade, with the changes, is it still sensible to specialize planets? Does it still maximize planets to go straight research, economy, production etc.  Has anything changed significantly to cause a change in that basic strategy?

Thanks all.
