Been playing this for along time and should know but coming back to game.

Can someone tell me how distance is measured in the expansion planner? It's not form nearest colony nor either home world or selected constructor location, any of which would be more useful than what is. I know what it appears to be but confirmation would be most helpful.

Nobody knows then or is it a secret.

Worked it out. heres' the situation with three planets, one space port, 1 constructor and one colony ship in broanee. There are also four more inhabital planets , 2 in Broanee and one each in the other two.

All the distances are measured from the home world no matter what you have selected on the map.

Here we have the same planets but Broanee now has a planet and a spaceport.

With just the colony built distances remained the same as above but when I built a space port at colony in Broanee some of the distances changed. Those in system were now shown as much closer, all the rest had the same distances. Conlusion is distances are measrure to the nearest space port.

Now look at a typical problem with this system. Here we have a resource shwon as 0K distance, the available constuctor is nearly half way across the galaxy. Yes I can find the a closer source by stepping through but with a lot of locations, like hydrogen, it tendious and should not be necessary. Be much better if the distance could also be measured to the constuctor itself and/or the selected space port.

Hope this is the case with DW2.
