|Available To:||All Major Factions|
|Unlocks:||Colonization Module CM-B1|
|Required By:||Adaptive Colonization|
Players will be able to start researching Mass Colonization very early on after unlocking the basic Colonizer hull, but with a Difficulty of 150, it will likely be some time before they have both the means and the need to do so. Unlike its prerequisite, this tech does not unlock a new hull, but rather an upgraded Colonization Module for the existing Colonizer hull to use. This new CM-B1 module holds more than twice as many people, but more importantly, deploys a free Farm structure during the colonization process.
This capability is very useful during the initial stages of setting up a colony, as it means that extra colonists brought along in Personnel Transport modules can be deployed planet-side immediately, to provide a workforce for setting up mines, manning Climate Stations for terraforming or building Entertainment structures to mitigate Corruption.
