From Outscape Wiki

Bio-farms are an advanced type of farm that increase the population size a colony can support of each organic civ on that planet (a normal farm only supports the player's own civ).

  • A bio-farm supports all organic civs on that planet: primary and secondary populations, the player's own civ if they are playing an organic civ, and minor factions (if a bio-farm supports 10,000 and there are 2 organic populations, the total supported would be 20,000)
  • Each additional bio-farm further increases the population sizes that can be supported (until the population size reaches the planet's limit)
  • Level 1, 2 and 3 bio-farms can be unlocked by performing the relevant research
  • Existing bio-farms can be upgraded to the level above (if that level has been unlocked through research)
  • It's not possible to construct a level 2 or 3 bio-farm directly - only a level 1 (which can then be upgraded)

  • Level 1, 2 and 3 bio-farms each need to be unlocked separately by researching the relevant technology (see 'Research to unlock' in the table above).

Constructing and upgrading

  • Level 1 bio-farms can be constructed directly
  • Level 2 bio-farms can be built only by upgrading a level 1 bio-farm
  • Level 3 bio-farms can be built only by upgrading a level 2 bio-farm
