I seem to be bottlenecking now on building big ships, and I'm not quite sure why, or what I can do about it?
I'm up to Research #9-ish on everything. I'm trying to build size #1024 ships. OK, my size 50 construction yards may not be up the job, but much the same with #1024 shipyards (and I've tried them all over the place): it needs to accumulate some 10M metal, say, and it takes a long, long time doing it (I see progress going up reasonably to start with, then slowing right down). I have millions in the galactic treasury. As I understand it, at the end of the day the shipyard (or planet) building has to get its resources through the planet plus galactic bank.
Does that ultimately mean its an inevitable problem, as my builders won't be able to gather materials fast enough?
Does it mean that you must always spread you ship building everywhere, because any one place is going to bottleneck?
