    When a research agreement has finished and you receive your free technology, does your research partner receive the same technology? I would guess that both parties receive one of their respective "next" technologies, which may or may not be the same, right?

    Update: This question has been made obsolete by the June 2011 patch. Research agreements now give a tech boost instead of a free tech. Tech boosts start at 50% of the median value of all techs you can research. Can be boosted to 100% if you both start Rationalism and build the Porcelain Tower.

  • Correct, they are not necessarily the same. You will receive a random technology from those that are available to you, and they will receive a random one for them. This does imply that if you are making use of research agreements, you should try not to "skip" techs that are cheap, since you want the research agreement to give you something as "expensive" as possible.

  • is this. Here is a cite from the guide that made me question this myself. However and btw when I review my games always wondered about it :) When [...] your research nearing future tech 1 (11 in each category) This implies to me that Calladice (the writer) has reasearched everything to 10. The question or tldr; is: I looked at for example: Research - Object databse - Biotechnology - (10) Siliko Biotechnology You can see there that Biotechnology 10 doesn't enable new structures or ships. So generally and by itself what is the point of researching something to 10 if it's not for some ship

  • Was playing team based game with my brother against the AI and noticed that the number of turns to research something dropped when we both selected to research the same technology. How does this work? Does it combine all players in the team researching the same technology (ie. its addictive)? or there diminishing returns? and if so what is the formula.

  • I've got a class 17 heavy gravity world in the system next to my home system that I would quite like to colonise before the AI does. However, it will take me 20 weeks to research heavy gravity colonization, and another 38 to research the advanced version of the tech. I know that if I colonise with only the first stage, then the planet will only got 50% of it's land space available, resulting in effectively a class 8 or 9 planet. However, if I later research the advanced version of the technology, do I get that lost space back? Or does the planet get permanently reduced?
