Idea "Laboratory".

- Laboratory.
1) It explores various technologies for the player.
2) Initially, all buildings are inaccessible for construction, they need to be studied
in the laboratory. The extraction of all types of resources is also initially unavailable, but
as research progresses, they will open.
3) Vertical research tree is used, but everything is broken
into sections.
4) To carry out the research, resources are needed (materials, items, currency).
5) The laboratory is initially in the player's inventory, but only portable (small).
6) Over time, the player will gain access to a more advanced laboratory
(option MK2, MK3), because the research will become too long, their
will need to be accelerated.
7) The player will be able to buy technologies in the market to speed up their
research. The player will also be able to share his "blueprints" of technologies
with other players (transfer in person or put on the market).
😎 Each research will have many levels of development (from 1 to 999).
9) Materials, items, ships and buildings can be upgraded
after research to make them more effective.
Moreover, the bonus for improving characteristics can be multiple (not 20-30%).
10) The MK1 laboratory is like a mobile microwave, where
objects for study.
11) The simplest technologies are learned in a matter of seconds.
12) The corporation can study special technologies that the player will not have
in solo.
13) The factory can be connected to the laboratory MK2 and MK3 to deliver
resources for learning.
14) The player's special skills can speed up the action of his laboratory.
If the laboratory belongs to several players, then it will work
even faster.
15) Improved items, buildings, etc. are referred to as TECH-1,2,3, etc.
16) After studying the technology of the 1st level - its meaning is read out by the built-in
voice assistant.
17) Over time, industrial espionage will appear in the game so that you can
was stealing technologies from other players or corporations (hacking skill).

18) The player will initially have several "civilian blueprints" technologies that

allow you to do some basic actions (after learning).

19) The laboratory is also needed to study "anomalies" or "alien artifacts",

which can then be introduced into the game.

20) Laboratories MK 2 and 3 are completely static, i.e. they cannot be

used for research - if they are in the inventory. Only if they are installed

on a private territory can they function.

21) Only one type of research can be carried out in each laboratory.
22) One player cannot use more than 2 laboratories at the same time.

The second laboratory becomes available only after learning a special skill.
23) A player can study one technology in several laboratories at once,

but only if he is a scientific director in a corporation. In this case, up to

10 laboratories are available to him.

Researching tech, especially tech you can sell sounds interesting but instead of unlocking current elements in the game I think making variations of items would be more interesting.

like engines with more power but use more fuel, if you don’t tune them correctly while researching or cargo containers with more space but also more weight or higher build cost. Stuff like that where you could research trade offs or spend more time to make more perfect items like engines with more power AND lower fuel costs.

Interesting. Yes, this can be implemented using a system of "micro-modules" which I previously wrote about here:

I thought about your idea. You can also implement it like this (as an example):
Design department.
What does it do?
This building is like a laboratory. If you go into the window of the building, then
you can get into the "ship" or building editor. In this editor
you can assemble a ship or a building from different elements with the selected
the level of technology. Like this?
Let's say you have a Level 1 Space Engine and a Level 40 Fuel Tank.
You are assembling a cargo shuttle.
Or you need to quickly convert it into a high-speed ship, then
take off the engines and change them to level 120 engines, but then
the crowd in the tank will end very quickly.
After that, save the drawing of the ship and press the button on "drawing the structure".
The design office for a certain time (not instantly) will create
blueprint from the selected ship.
* - The speed of drawing creation is affected by the size of the structure, the number of elements
in it and their complexity.
* - The Design Bureau takes research points from the Laboratory. Those. the higher
you have a developed laboratory complex, the faster you will create
drawings of ships and buildings. But while a ship is being developed - a laboratory
or it cannot work at all, or it works very weakly.
* - Thus, in the ship, you can focus on something to the detriment of another.
* - And it would be good if such an editor was available offline so that you can
first look at the characteristics of the ship - without building it.
