Well, the limited build radius for TCs is going to open up the resource divide quite a bit.  You aren't going to be able to build up one town to produce everything anymore. 

Example: Xiphos.  It needs 5 buildings to create one.  2 buildings produce the raw resources and can be located at any town.
The other 3 buildings need to be together in one town.

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

I've had dedicated raw resource towns and production towns since 0.800, so I won't expect to feel any impact from the change. :D

The rest is nomenclature and accounting.

I've been playing the one town wonder :)  These changes are going to hit me pretty hard tbh.

Maybe you should need to build a Trade Post in a town to access the global resources, so you at least take up a building slot.  Otherwise the town is on its own.
