Atomic Substrates is a technology on the Applied Sciences technology tree with a research cost of 4000 . It unlocks a Planetary Exploitation and a Strategic Resource, needs research in Advanced Simulations and allows further research in Infinite Variable Computing.
"As the sophistication of etching and printing technologies advances, the creation of a wide range of materials is possible from 'inks' made of almost any element. The process that began with layering silicon to create chips has an increasingly wide range of applications."
3D Replication PlantsEdit
"It was a large and complicated engineering task, but the creation of a planet-wide system of smart materials plus improved logistics has brought this world to the point where any industrial object can be 'printed' in a local factory. While the bonus to production is obvious, the complexity of the infrastructure becomes a dominant factor in the economy"
"Discovered as a byproduct of the nuclear fusion process within a star, the properties of this orange metal make it excellent for anything that must put up with extreme conditions."
- Atomic Substrates also allows United Empire to research Exploitive Algorithms.
