Some of the planets I've seen have been huge; in the solar system I'm in now there is one planet with a habitable base on it that I've been able to find. I've got heaps of plutonium in reserve (as a legacy of when it was everywhere) but I think a few more tweaks are in order - especially in the "normal" mode.
