When scoring for planets, do you count your own home planet also (assuming you control it)? Most of the time it doesn't matter that much, since everyone else is scoring points for the same net gain, but the "New Earth" shows it's worth 3 (and a credit). So if you can't score your own, Terriforming looks like a big risk, because it makes it a juicier home planet (and only gives you 1 credit, which effectively just catches you up to the other races).

I was going to post a similar thread earlier, glad you did. I'm assuming you do score your own planet, hopefully we get an official ruling.

I'd be surprised if you didn't score it. Especially that New Earth is worth more, otherwise there would be no point to have that extra value.

Yeah, make sure to score your home planet each scoring round if you control it.
