Research

Research allows corporations to discover blueprints by spending 1,000,000 energy and $1,000,000, with an additional expense of 500,000 energy+ for every research facility beyond 6 in the region, which can then be instantly finished with 4x gratitude points. Corporations need to have a research facility built in the region to perform research. Blueprints can be developed into their respective technologies to be installed in a region.

3 of the same tech can be upgraded for increased power. Losing some of the original power to save 2 slots helps when you have other tech that can fit the other spots. When the tech is already u, sometimes the 3 techs are actually better off combined to uu as they give more than 3x benefit. Any non-stackable tech one wishes to keep should ALWAYS be upgraded to maximum capacity ASAP.

Upgraded tech becomes (tech name)u. Upgrading consumes 3 of the original tech to build the tech u. Some tech can be upgraded to another level, creating a (tech name)uu. Use the examine command to view each tech. Note: Tech installed into a region tech slot can not be upgraded, uninstall the tech to upgrade.


Multiple research projects can occur simultaneously as long as they are started in separate regions. Research facility is the only building that has a cap, at 8 buildings per region.
