I've got the same or a similar question. I discovered that I can actually begin researching the faction specific branches at the same time as I'm working on something else. Does that split the available RP between the two projects, thus making them both complete more slowly or do they both get researched with the full available RP. I'm getting back into this game, but finding the mechanics incredibly opaque. I feel like I must have only half of the library.
RP is split evenly across all projects in the queue, Faction specific or not.
contributor -- sorry to hear that the game appears to be opaque. The Library is intended as an in-game aid for new players. If you are one of the players who wants to dig into the deeper mechanics and math of the game, the manual is probably best.
Thanks for the feedback, we will keep trying to improve.
Cory Trese, does faction specific tech rely only on that faction's generated research points, or the combined research points of all the colonies?
Faction specific Technology is researched using the normal rules for RP. Faction specific UPGRADES can only be built on Faction worlds. Faction specific SHIP COMPONENTS can be included on any ship design, and therefore built on any Faction's world.
