So this is actually something I've been waiting for for a long time, though I envisioned something on a planetary level, kind of like a hands-off Civilizations. I love, love, love this, and I'd love to see you keep developing this.

Oh god, I just watched a multi-planet civilization collapse! I've entered a second age of darkness!
