Unfortunately it's not really an matter of what opinions are, it's about game limitations and trying to keep things stable

I see well if the team ever changes it’s mind it would make for a nice touch

Unlikely. Adding more galaxy-spanning textures would significantly increase texture memory usage on the galactic map. We already have to reduce the galaxy texture resolution to release for GoG and Disk at all. It's currently 4 2048x2048 textures as it is.

That’s understandable also I was wondering if the team ever planned on adding more detail to the gc map background.
Like the lines that split up the different regions of the galaxy from the deep core to out rim and map offthe certain controlled areas of space like huff space and Hapan space and any other areas of space

We haven't found a hard limit, however keep in mind, the more planets, the worse the performance and it doesn't seem like it's just a linear increase, either. Empire's End has pretty significantly worse performance than Art of War, with just 20 more planets, so the more you scale that, especially as groups get added, the higher the requirements would get for CPU strength as you go. This is especially problematic because CPU improvements tend to be in number of cores, whereas EaW is a 32 bit game and therefore can only use one core.

This question has really bothered me here recently considering the game has over 120 planets in its largest gc
I was beginning to wonder how many planets are allowed to be on a single map ( maybe an artificial limit)
Because if there isn’t one or you haven’t neared it yet are working on a bigger GC that includes more or are is it something the team has been thinking about.
