Mineral richness

There are five ratings of a planet's mineral richness. This affects a planet's production capacity as well as the population growth of lithovore races. If we use Abundant rating as the baseline, an Ultra-Poor world has a production rate of only 62.5%, while an Ultra-Rich world has a production rate of 206.25%.

Richness Production Lithovore
Ultra-Poor
1 1.3
Poor
1.2 1.8
Abundant
1.6 2.3
Rich
2.3 2.8
Ultra-Rich
3.3 3.5

Mineral richness also has an effect on a planet's default gravity: a planet richer in mineral is denser, and therefore heavier than a poorer planet of the same size class.
