Global Science Program
From Outscape Wiki
|Global Science Program|
|Available To:||All Major Factions|
|Prerequisite:||Magnetized Target Fusion|
|Unlocks:||Tier 3 Laboratories|
|Required By:||Quantum Manipulation|
The Global Science Program Technology allows the player to upgrade their Laboratories to the Tier 3 version, the highest possible upgrade for these structures. Each Tier 3 Lab provides three Science Power (Syntis Research Boosters provide four), representing a significant increase in potential Science Power.
As with the Tier 2 upgrade, these are both expensive and time-consuming to perform, with each one now consuming 9,000 Limbalt and Ziryl each. Syntis players will also need to factor in the doubled power requirement of 400 MWt per Tier 3 Laboratory. Despite all this, as the Difficulty of available Techs continues to rise and the player's science worlds hit their population caps, these upgrades will eventually become useful for late-game players in achieving maximum returns from existing infrastructure.
As with the previous upgrade, Laboratories will not contribute any Science Power to the player's empire-wide total while upgrading.
