- Uselfulness depends on the number of available planets - the more of them, the less useful it is. In DA and DL trade usually generates 1000 - 2000 BC revenue, while one class 10 planet usually generates 200 - 400 BC. It is better to look at trade as a diplomatic tool with some financial benefit.
- There'a also another in-game nerf to trade revenue: it is halved when treasury surpasses 10,000 BC. However this seems to be gone in DA 1.6 beta5.
