Your colony will grow very quickly if you acquire new technologies. You will increase your access to many objects, that will significantly affect the lives in your colony. From the beginning of the game you have access to two stations. The first has a fairly obvious name – the research station. It will use up small amounts of dirt, and after powering it up you can create one point of Novice Research. Build it near a storage compactor, in which you will only store dirt. This way the supplier will not have to travel long distances. The second object is the super computer. This station needs 25 kg of water in order to produce 1 Intermediary Research point. Storage of water without the proper technology can be problematic, so it is important to place this object close to a natural water tank. It is best to create a pleasant working environment at all research stations, by increasing the decor factor.
