Set the initial queue length to 4. Early game planets micromanagement is just a PITA. Waking up to queue solar generators is just bleh.
Not sure on this. I think if this was put in there would generally be no need to have any queue research.
This is more QoL because we are older. Activity should be rewarded and if people want to get an edge by being up at 3am then they should get that benefit.
It only takes a couple of days at the start to get enough research points for QL4.
