MDL (Maximum Development Level)

MDL is the maximum development level of the planet. Once this value is reached by the TDL, no further development can occur - i.e. sectors can not continue to expand (this does not apply to service and government). As of .320b, each planet size has a base max development level, as follows:

Class 0 40
Class I 70
Class II 110
Class III 160
Class IV 230

This value is adjusted by the tectonic level of the planet and the bio rating, so if the bio rating is 50, the actual usable amount of the planet is halved. If you find that you are getting short of room on your planet, you can try terraforming to improve the amount of usable land, or perhaps bring in a viceroy with the Planning trait.
