Is there not a smother way to upgrade a starport from i.e small -> medim other than "right click on starport". I mean this should be MUCH more userfriendly if you could do this thru F10 (Construction yards) or something. Am I missing something here? Plese enlighten me cause it´s a very tedious task to upgrade like 25 spaceports in this manner

You could upgrade the small starport design. But that way you would have to upgrade your starports all at once (maybe you only want to upgrade a few).

Ok thats´s one way to go i suppose. Problem is that "small starport design" isn´t small starport no more after that. If I colonize new planets well...

You could leave it to the AI? I had the same problem and thought Id try it, works well, does the same as I would (check planet 'pop etc) then changes the spaceports from small to medium to large as and when the planet 'pop reaches the right level, although I now do my own upgrades and designs the AI does a good job of retro-fitting them as well from what I remember.

I noticed the AI upgrading my space ports in the previous game, it surprised me a bit. I think I had suggest on bases and ships. But at least I found medium space ports in spots I was pretty sure I had never upgraded myself.

I find I lack some help in getting overview of space ports, but it hardly matters much. I would love a sortable list containing "colony name, system, space port size, population". It is easy to make sure that each system got a space port just by scrolling across the map. If there are multiple colonies, it is not so quick to make sure that all colonies got a space port. And also, I don't know a simple way to spot good colonies with a small space port.

The solution is probably to have enough automation that the AI upgrades them. But there are limits to how many large space ports are needed.
