Then, my research centers, like my factories, only do a little bit on their own but when they're adjacent they give huge bonuses. Then add two scientists and boom. The 10 points from my population with +5 from the computer score gets doubled by the adjacencies.
You should explain how you got this 10 raw production too! because population isn't worth anyting at all! To get 4 raw production from the population you need 16! Not worth the effort to get the moral that high! The square root made it not worth a fart. 9 population is the max reasonable, as you get 3 raw production then, but that's just one more than with 4 population! so why to bother, with some races it even needs entertainment center to get a decent moral with 4. So the most important part to boost raw production are asteroid mines, as every close one provides 1 whole raw production for just 100 credits! I wouldn't make it the square root, i know simple and understandable, but renders high amounts of population rather to a burden instead of valuable ressource.
