This page provide links to documents related to early economic development at Planets.nu.
This section of the Planets.nu documentation is dedicated to providing players with suggestions and advice on how to play better. Unlike the other sections, there is a large amount of subjective material here. These are opinions as to how to play and ideas about advanced play. If an idea works for you, feel free to use it. If it doesn't work for you, don't use it.
Much of this information is external to Planets.nu. Most of the external information was written for the VGA Planets game from which Planets.nu was derived, and may not accurately reflect how to do a specific task at Planets.nu. The editors of the Planets Magazine work to keep their information current, but even there some outdated guides may exist, so use caution.
