We all know how this little relationship is going to play out. Some time passes, the contractor delivers their first batch of planets/star systems. CR looks at them then sends them back saying, "Oh, now we want every populated planet to have a unique fully developed language you have to learn (new skill tree) before you can read the signs, do business, etc., also each planet needs several unique and lethal diseases (with fully modeled and animated body deformation and decay), that the player will need to seek out medical facilities with the proper vaccinations, and you will have to redo these anyway since we just reconfigured the game engine so we can show more rivets on our ships, so your scaling is all wrong."
