A: Yes it does! You need to research a specific technology to unlock transportation between planets, though. It is also possible to do logistics between distant galaxies.

(DSPWiki Editor's note: The game itself exists within what some might consider one "galaxy". It is unclear what is meant by galaxies in this entry of the FAQ. Your game may have anywhere between 24 and 64 Solar Systems, which the "specific technology" can permit Logistics Vessels to travel between.)

(DSPWiki Editor's note: ''some'' mods have already begun to be developed by players. These are NOT officially supported and the developer's stance on them at this time is "use at your own risk". Official mod support is on the roadmap.)

A: Not at all. Planets have different ecological environments and materials. Some rare materials can only be found on certain planets. Their revolution and rotation are different as well, which influence how you produce solar- and wind energy.

(DSPWiki Editor's note: The 'difficulty' appears to be that game saves beyond 1 gb in size are not permitted on Steam Cloud. There is currently a bug where particularly large Dyson Spheres cause the save file's size to inflate beyond this.)

The storage tank can be dismantled, but the materials in it will disappear. The premise of the demolition of the storage is that your inventory's empty space is enough to hold the materials from the storage. When the production equipment is dismantled, if the backpack has enough space to hold the materials from it, you'll get the materials in your inventory. Otherwise, the materials will disappear.

(DSPWiki Editor's Note: There are some cases where attempting to dismantle a building with more cargo than your inventory can hold will prevent you from dismantling the building, rather than destroying the cargo. At this time, it is unclear what the exact criteria are.)

(DSPWiki Editor's Other Note: Always be aware of how much inventory space you have available. Even when crafting an item in your replicator, if you have insufficient inventory space to hold the finished item, it will be lost.)
    
==Why is the sorting function of the high-speed sorter smarter than the rapid sorter? The high-speed sorter can automatically sort mixed materials to the corresponding manufacturing station, but the rapid sorter can't. The advanced sorter can automatically switch the materials when one specific material on the manufacturing station is full, but the rapid sorter will just stop the delivery.==
