Levels of research:


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.


  1. Swapping of Crystal Glass Crystal small for research points  Research small.
  2. Government form: Technocracy.


You can conduct Experiments in the Academy at a rate of 2 Crystal small for Research small (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 small, but gaining more research points  Research small.

  • The cost of an experiment is based on your total accumulated research points.  This includes research points that have already been used to complete previous research achievements.
  • 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 Crystal small, meaning that you will be able to buy up to 150,000 Research small (without any reductions) or as much as 220,589 Research small (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 small stays at 300,000 while the  Research small gained goes up.
    With lower level researches, the optician will appear normal and drop the amount of crystal needed.

Total score & Scientists

All researches give you 0.02 Scientists points for every Research small 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 Research small you spend.

Levels of research

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