Orbital works.png

Centralized manufacturing infrastructure for production of heavy industrial equipment, supplies, and weapons. Also capable of producing barely-spaceworthy starships; a nanoforge can be installed to improve production quality.

Upgraded with an orbital component that further facilitates ship construction, resulting in fewer manufacturing defects.

–In-game description

Orbital Works is an industry. It can be built at any Colony by upgrading a Heavy Industry. It can be optionally downgraded back to Heavy Industry.

  • Gamma; reduces demand by 1 unit
  • Beta; reduces demand by 1 unit, reduces upkeep cost by 25%
  • Alpha; reduces demand by 1 unit, reduces upkeep cost by 25%, increases production by 1 unit

In addition, a Corrupted Nanoforge or Pristine Nanoforge can be installed, which will increase production by 1 and 3 respectively, as well as increase ship quality by 20% and 50% respectively.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Increases Luddic Path cell interest moderately (2), increasing to 6 if a Nanoforge is installed.
