@Gilz2 - Talk to our mapper, and it's perfectly fine about you diverting attention to your Kin. ;D
Anyways, There's a little gift I'm going to talk with Sweeten about for you, what with all of your help on historical accuracy and all.
As for the rule regarding resources, I'd probably take a look at the Default maps, and then at the Custom ones. On default maps the resources are just right, so I guess ethier dumbing down the amount of Sectors or just the resources per sector would work.
