Research System

At the University, Researchers can research various upgrades to your colony. These are split into three trees: Combat, Civilian, and Technology. You access these from the second page of the University GUI.

Each column of a research tree is also the level the University needs to be to begin a research from that column. So:

Research Tree Column Minimum University Level
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5+ 5

You can only have one column 6 research in each of the Combat, Civilian, and Technology trees. To unlock a different column 6 research for that tree, you must undo the completed one first.

Symbol Description
Blocked Research A research can be blocked, either by an unfinished prerequisite research, by a completed blocking research, or because the research tree has another column 6 research already active.
Locked Research A locked research requires a building or buildings, or other unrelated research, before it can be started.
Unlocked Research An unlocked research has all colony and research requirements met, but requires an item or items. These items must be in the player’s inventory.
Available Research An available research is ready to begin. Clicking the title of the research will consume the items from the player’s inventory and start the research.
Progressing Research A progressing research is being worked on currently. This research will show its current progression and a rough estimate of the remaining time to completion. A progressing research can be canceled by clicking the research title and then clicking the Cancel pop-up. Cancelling a research will not refund the material costs.
Complete Research A complete research has been fully unlocked by your University. Its effects have been applied to the colony and colonists.
Exclusive Research Some researches are exclusive, requiring such extreme focus that they aren’t compatible with each other. Only one research from a specific or selection may be learned in a colony at a time.
Undo Research Some completed researches may be undone if they block another research in some way, do not have a completed research that depends on them, and are not marked with a redstone torch as irreversible. Undoing a research does not refund the research costs and consumes the displayed item.

Below is a description of each of the researches:
