Mass Particle Displacement is a technology on the Exploration and Expansion technology tree with a research cost of 14000 . It unlocks one Empire Improvement and one Planet Improvement, requires research in Non-Baryonic Shielding or in Soil Revivification, and allows further research in Complex Regulated Systems and Dark Matter Shielding.
"Particles can be collided, ejected, projected, split, accelerated, and otherwise abused. A new form of particle control and tracking technology, the mass particle displacement systems allow scientists and engineers to execute all these exceedingly interesting verbs on large bodies of particles and track the billions of resulting reactions."
Second Gen WarpEdit
"Initial successes with the warp field engine system have spurred research and engineering. The speed and maneuverability of the ships have improved, and much of the time the crew is now able to see where they are going."
"Typically done to elevate a less hospitable planet type to Arid, this project requires the creation of viable soils and a functioning, if relatively dry, atmosphere. It is still an enormous investment in energy, raw materials, and time."
