is it viable at all to delete and restart a map to get a OP home system?
Well there is a 5 day delay for restarts (after the first I think?) so be aware of that for one.
If you have a mate in game they MIGHT be able to cherry pick you a good world near their territory now.
But a general restart? Too much of a lottery I’d say.
EDIT: Welcome Back BTW
I wouldn’t personally worry much about a home planet or even home system unless your syntis and only because they require large dry worlds to get the same bang the rest of us do. Either way, if you have a single bad system in your initial cluster of systems, your in a great spot.
At least thats how I feel.
