1 - Is there a way to see the game settings for my game, once it's in progress? Number of opponents, difficulty, etc? All the things you pick when starting the game.

2 - Do you need to/can you build a mining station at a colony? Is it necessary or useful?

Thanks

1; You can possibly see them by starting a new game (look at the galaxy setup). It should remember your last used setting. If you have started a new game with different settings since your current one, you are out of luck.

2: No, you can not build a mining station at a colony. If you colonize an already mined planet, the mine will disappear. In theory it could be useful, as I believe a max speed mine mines faster than a colony does.

you can anyway always see the difficulty and the Galaxy size of your game in the "Empire Comparison and Victory Conditions" screen in the second sub-screen: "Achievements".

I'm Pretty sure you can still build Starbases over colony with extractors or gas extractors. Try that.

I could be wrong but I feel like you can still do that.

the original question was: "Is it necessary or useful ?"

it can be useful to build a Starbase with extractors over a planet only if that extractors extract more resources in a single time section than the bare planet.
