It'll be like playing single maps, except the maps are all interconnected and you can carry over units, tech, relations and bonuses, plus evolve your leader between maps. So almost like a campaign, just with greater control in what you do in your next mission.
Yeah I understand it mechanic wise, but I wonder if it will be to my liking. Seems like a huge time investment, so it needs to be enjoyable to keep you going.

I am really enjoying the galaxy mode you have done a fantastic job it really adds a new layer that got me playing it with a new enthusiasm. I love the planetary trait so much it adds so much flavor but the galaxy mode also seems to lack the setting which I always apricated as being able to change climates of the planets. I assume this was done for balancing purposes, however seeing this is a single player only feature (at least if I am reading correctly) were there other reasons that settings were removed?

How high do the Complexity levels get? I've only conquered 4 worlds and options range from "very high" to "Nightmarish" ... was hoping to stick with my empire for awhile, but a little worried now ...

Ok so I was a bit surprised about finishing a planet in GE...

I maxed out my Heroes as much as I could, got such great loadouts for them becasue I thought that they will at least keep their mods... but when you're done with a map everything is gone, your saves included so I can't even go back :/ And my heroes advanced by ONE level as a reward...

This is a bit underwhelming. Yeah, ofc it makes sense from a balancing perspective, but could've they have done it so that at least your commanders keeps his loadout? I mean c'mon :D And I had such cool heroes to boot. Seems the strategy here is to breeze through the maps, grab those Relics and be done with it...
