We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Research is the essence of survival in Alpha Centauri, allowing you to unlock new facilities, secret projects, weapons and armor for units and more.

Researching[edit | edit source]

  • Every turn your faction generates a number of research points, multiplied by your current Research indicator up to a maximum of +50%.
  • The number of research points depends on the number of research facilities you have built, Specialists working at your bases, technologies, and secret projects.
  • These research points are accumulated towards unlocking new techs. Depending on the setting (Blind Research or not), you either unlock a random technology influenced by the chosen focus (Discover, Explore, Conquer, or Build) or the selected technology. Progenitor factors rediscover technologies and have a natural advantage if the default blind setting is selected.
