The Research Tree for the Automation Innovation Pack

Research is an Errand done at a Research Station, Super Computer, Telescope, Virtual Planetarium as well as Geysers. Research speed can be improved by higher duplicant Science and a lit workspace.

Viewing the Research Tree requires the colony have either a Research Station, Super Computer or Virtual Planetarium.

Research Station is available at the start of the game. It provides Novice Research points which are required to research every tech in the game. Every Novice Research point costs 50 kg dirt.

Super Computer is available after researching the Advanced Research tech. Requiring a duplicant with the Advanced Research skill, it provides Advanced Research points which are needed for every tech in the third column of the research tree and beyond. Every Advanced Research point costs 50 kg water.

Telescope is available after researching the Celestial Detection tech. Requiring a duplicant with the Field Research skill, it is required to view the Starmap and allows for the research of interstellar bodies.

Virtual Planetarium is available after researching the Computing tech. Requiring a duplicant with the Astronomy skill, it provides Interstellar Research points which are needed for the last 6 techs in the research tree. Every Interstellar Research point costs 1 Data Bank. Data Banks are only obtainable from space missions.

Tips[]

  • The only ways to improve the Learning skill are tied to mastering a Research job, either to conduct research or to analyze objects, and there's a limited amount of both available. It's advisable to adjust priorities so that only dupes that currently run the Research jobs are conducting the errand.
  • Completing the entire Research Tree requires 2,615 Novice Research points, 2,470 Advanced Research points and 2,800 Interstellar Research points requiring 130,750 kg dirt, 123,500 kg water and 2,800 data banks.
  • Analyzing Geysers takes a long time, and many geysers are very dangerous. Either wait until the geyser is dormant, or seal the geyser chamber beforehand and make sure that researchers wears an Atmo Suit.
