Is it possible to change the default position that the game views the planet when doing PI? It always goes to the command center, but it would be nice to change it to make it focus where i have all my stuff installed.

On each planet i build, first i check to see where the resources that i want from said planet are... Then i stick the command centre in that area.
Makes life a lot easier.


Aside from that - nope, it always goes to the command centre.

That's how I start also, but what do you do when the resources you parked next to are depleted? I find I need to shift my operation around the planet once a week or so when there's nothing but tailings left within a circle that my extractors will reach with the longest sensible road. Some people just move the extractor around with its own spaceport, leaving the factory by the CC, but that's a wasted mushroom and takes more time to deal with on the daily updates, so I shift all my PI mushrooms to the best harvesting area.

That said, it's easier to find your manufacturing operation by planet-spinning than it is to find a lone command center. I occasionally want to find my CC, either to see how much grid I have left or to abandon the planet altogether. If I can have only one default, I want it to be the command center, as it is now.

If I remember correct when you double click anywhere on the planet (but not on buildings) you are automatically "spun" to your CC.
