Lab

Lab


Research becomes possible after building a Lab. There are 10 research levels, each containing a number of technologies which can be researched. The first level of research becomes available when your first Lab is finished; each successive level is unlocked by research within the level below. Additionally there is a set of extraterrestrial technologies which become available after the reconnaissance of respective space anomalies.

All Labs work together, combining their research speed on a single project. The player can choose which technologies should be researched and in what order. Note there is no obligation to complete all technologies on a level before continuing to the next level; except for the unlock of the next level, all technologies can be skipped. If a particular technology is removed from the research queue, its progress is kept and it can later be resumed.
