It seemed like the red-bordered attacks on Steel and Titanium production could be pretty crippling/swingy, since it seemed like there weren't many ways of getting steel or titanium production. Also, as a new player, it is not obvious how easy it is to get, say, a plant production, so it's hard to value the card then. So I decided to look through the cards to get a sense of how common the various production symbols were (especially relative to the attacks).

Doubtless I've made some errors, but it gives you a general sense. A couple of things I noted in the data:
- none of the corp edition cards give plant production
- only 5 steel production cards and one of them is the 'Escarpment' card that 'attacks' another steel production... (although there is also the mining guild's starting steel prod and the industrial centre that can buy steel prod each turn)
- only 9 oceans in the game but 17 ocean symbols on cards (plus the 2 blue cards that can generate oceans repeatedly), so in a 5-player game that you go through the whole deck, be sure to use your ocean cards early! probably less important at lower player counts...

I'll do another post with the other effects (generally blue ones) that don't fit here.

Note that the the '#' columns below refer to the number of cards that give that effect, not a sum of the effects...
