Science & Technology Center

The Science & Technology Center

The Science & Technology Center, which can be built by both sapient and machine empires, is now overhauled to include a building chain of 4, each increasing the bonuses provided. In order to get the starting building, you require a new tech called “Integrated Research Paradigm”. This is an easy to find, cheap tier 2 Society tech with a unique icon making it easy to spot. Once level 1 is grabbed, levels 2, 3, and 4 require more to unlock. Since the idea is all research departments collaborating to enhance research, you will require all 3 of the same level techs for all 3 base research buildings (see the research requirements below for clarification). The first level gives you bonuses in research speeds. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th levels add in extra research alternatives, and the 3rd and 4th levels even add adjacency bonuses for research tiles.

Building Bonuses:

  • Research Initiative Center (Level 1):
    • Increases all research speed by 10%.
  • Education & Learning Center (Level 2):
    • Adds 1 extra option to the research screen when choosing research projects.
    • Increases all research speed by 15%.
  • Research & Development Center (Level 3):
    • Adds 2 extra options to the research screen when choosing research projects.
    • Increases all research speed by 20%.
    • Applies 1 additional bonus resource for each research on any adjacent tiles.
  • Science & Technology Center (Level 4):
    • Adds 3 extra options to the research screen when choosing research projects.
    • Increases all research speed by 25%.
    • Applies 2 additional bonus resources for each research on any adjacent tiles.
