I'm disappointed. I blew the quasar like 5 minutes ago. It took out most the stars in the galaxy, but the planets were untouched. Literally untouched. Still at full HP. Bug, or working as intended, or does the fact that the planets were occupied by a tech 40 civ make them hardier than the stars themselves?
Note: I just started a size 150 spherical galaxy, tech 40, made 150 scouts, batch made upsized colony ships, populated the galaxy, made a size 1M ship with 2 size 4 DSM's, jumped it to the quasar, and blew it.
