A wile back you said the reptiles would not need huge amounts of colonists and so far most every thing they have is automated .
This could be a BIG boost for lower end devices and for ratings .
the thing is if you can get the same kind of production from them as you can get from earth type wile at the same time not needing 180 k colonists it would get ride of alot of the headaches of managing ratings as anything much under 25 k is easy to keep ratings stable .

Ps having said this I finly have learned how to keep 180 k colonists rating stable alest to the point were I only have to mess with rating once a day .
