Complex Regulated Systems is a technology on the Exploration and Expansion technology tree with a research cost of 25000 . It unlocks one Empire Improvement and one Planet Improvement, requires research in Exotic Thermodynamics, Personal Fields, or Mass Particle Displacement, and allows further research in Mass Hydration and Dark Energy Effects.
"The ability to monitor and regulate complex systems -- such as biospheres -- is almost, but not quite, more art than science. This discipline lies at the peak of a pyramid composed of mathematics, psychology, game theory, signal science, regulatory network theory, and system sciences. Lessons learned from the exploitation of Dust are equally critical."
Advanced Warp FieldsEdit
"Simple advances in energy generation have improved the engine's ability to compress and expand space-time. The resulting increase in speed is appreciated, and higher engine efficiency also means that greater distances can now be traveled."
"Rich and varied, a Terran-class planet is one of the most viable and valuable planet types in the universe. Transforming another planet into this type is necessarily an expensive and scientifically complex task. But, like most things in life, it wouldn't be interesting if it were too easy."
