You can improve your company by researching technologies.

Unlock technology[edit | edit source]

Technologies can be unlocked permanently in the technology menu. To unlock a technology, you need to pay the displayed cost. You can only unlock technology with a level inferior or equal to your current technology level.

The cost of a technology depends on its level and your technology inflation ratio.

Cost = BaseCost * Level * InflationRatio

The base cost is 20 research points.

The inflation ratio is 1 and is multiplied by 1.3 each time your technology level increase (or 1.22 if you have the instruments technology)


  • Mining is a technology level 1. At the start of the game its cost is 20 ( 20 * 1 * 1). Unlock it multiply the inflation ratio by 1.3 to 1.3
  • Quick repair is a technology level 2. After buying a technology, its cost is 52 (20 * 2 * 1.3). The inflation ratio is increase to 1.69 (1.3 * 1.3)
  • I now unlock Metallurgy (level 2). Its cost is 67 (20 * 2 * 1.69). The inflation ratio is increase to 2.197
  • To purchase the level 4 technology Bombing, I need 175 research points (20 * 4 * 2.197)

Technology level[edit | edit source]

Your technology level increase by one each time you buy a technology.When your technology level increases, your Inflation Ratio is also increased.
