Re: Departmental Gameplay Improvements

Science is massively hampered by RnD. The reason why xenobiology is fun is that: A) By default, you don't need massive RnD investment to make it fun. B) The improvements that make it more fun don't take forever (can get it roundstart through Industrial Engineering for decent upgrades). Compare this ...

Re: Security buffs

Nuke ops can easily be given a martial art advantage by giving all of them combat gloves plus instead of just the leader; that gives you krav maga + insulated + damage protection on hands all in one.

Re: Uses for extra energy generation

Tying the excess power into other departments is a great way to incentivize people making more power. For example, cargo can order Industrial Energy Cells, which work like the power sink, except they take x amount of energy out of the cables then stops taking energy. It can then be sold based on how...
