Description

Our scientists want to have the chance of testing their theories in practice.  These trials would most probably accelerate research time, but does mean they would need a certain amount of additional laboratory equipment.

Effects

Allows:
  1. Swapping of Crystal Glass Crystal Glass for research points  Research Point(s).
  2. Government form: Technocracy.

Function

You can conduct Experiments in the Academy at a rate of 2 2 crystal glass for 1 Research Point(s) (before any reductions from an Optician's).

It takes 4 hours to clean up between experiments before the next one can start in that Academy.  You can carry out an experiment in each of your academies at the same time.  The size of the experiments grow as you gain more research points, costing more Crystal Glass Crystal Glass, but gaining more research points  Research Point(s).

  • The cost of an experiment is based on your total accumulated research points since the begining of your gameplay. This includes research points that have already been used to complete previous research achievements and/or experiments. The cost is always an even number and for every 30 produced research points  Research Point(s), 2 crystals Crystal Glass are added to the cost.
  • You can use Optician's to reduce the cost of experiments by up to 32%.
  • The size of each experiment is capped at 300,000 300,000 crystal glass, meaning that you will be able to buy up to 150,000 150,000 Research Point(s) (without any reductions) or as much as 220,589 220,589 Research Point(s) (with a Level 32 Optician).
    This is an illusion effect with Optician's.  The higher Futures researches, around Level 2, requires more research points, so it appears that the Crystal Glass stays at 300,000 while the  Research Point(s) gained goes up.
    With lower level researches, the optician will appear normal and drop the amount of crystal needed.

The formula that calculates the amount of Research Points  Research Point(s) that can be received from an experiment related to the current amount of Total Produced Research Points  Research Point(s) (TRP)[1] and the level (n) of Optician is the following:

Note:
  1. 1.0 1.1 The research points you have produced since you started to play the game. Normally, you spend them to complete researches and or experiments

Total score & Scientists

All researches give you 0.02 Scientists points for every 1 Research Point(s) spent on any of them.  This is added to your Total score points.

  • This means that you will earn 1 Scientists & Total score point for every 50 50 Research Point(s) you spend.

Levels of research

You will earn 4 Levels of research points for every research you complete, no matter how many  Research Point(s) are required to complete it or which group it belongs to.
