I built a few replication centers (or whatever they're called...the ones that are supposed to make population grow by 40M for the whole system) in some of my systems. I noticed that planets with my own race grow quickly, but the planets in those systems that I've used a conquered race to colonize do not seem to get the benefit.
Are those facilities not supposed to effect alien populations? Or is this a bug?
Do the system-wide % growth facilities (med lab, gestation vats) effect alien populations?
For that matter, do facilities with a system-wide effect also affect planets owned by other empires in the same system? For example, do death shrines affect only friendly ships, or all ships in the system? It would make sense if they only worked for friendly (or friendly and allied) ships, but you never know.
