A duplicant visits the Printing Pod to learn a skill.

As Duplicants work in the colony, they will gain skill points to upgrade their attributes and gain new abilities. Skill points are spent through using the Skills menu.

Mechanics[]

  • After reaching an XP threshold the duplicant will gain a skill point.
  • Spending a skill point is instant and semi-permanent. Duplicants will visit the Printing Pod to master the skill.
  • Some jobs grant new abilities to dupes, some only increase attributes.
  • Morale expectations are a sum of the morale costs of all the duplicant's skills. A duplicant without any skills has no morale expectations.
  • Duplicant interests will show a heart icon and grant 1 bonus morale when mastered. This allows tier 1 skills to be effectively free.
  • Skills may be reset by using the Skill Scrubber.
