Optimized Logistics is a technology on the Diplomacy and Trading technology tree with a research cost of 1800 Science. It unlocks two Star System Improvements, requires research in Xenominerology or in Planetary Landscaping, and allows further research in Alien Barter Theory and Inter-Species HR.

"Optimized logistics are a result of NP-hard solutions to organizational problems. Computational solutions to large-scale distribution networks, when extended into time-relative mathematics (and even with very high time complexity), have a surprising number of applications beyond simple demand management and load prediction."

NotesEdit

  • The Harmony do not receive this technology.
  • The Sowers refer to this technology as Concurrent Logistics, with the following description: "Optimized logistics are a result of NP-hard solutions to organizational problems. Beyond these simple computational solutions to large-scale distribution networks, however, further development of the algorithms that now result in massively parallel distribution logistics gives productivity an enormous boost."

Careful SweepingEdit

Research-careful-sweeping
  • +2 Dust per Population on Planets with an explored Moon
  • -3 Dust on improvement

Cost: 280 Industry

"This term for the tax system, an "in" joke between bureaucrats, indicates that the government is careful about picking up all the Dust it can, regardless of where it is (NP-hard math is required to plot the travel routes of the collectors)."

Colonial RightsEdit

Research-colonial-rights
  • +30 Approval on Star System
  • +10% Food on Ecstatic
  • +10% Industry on Ecstatic
  • +10% Dust on Ecstatic
  • +10% Science on Ecstatic
  • -3 Dust on improvement

Cost: 220 Industry

"A complex question has always arisen around the power of a colonial government to administer its own affairs without too much interference from distant, once-important home worlds. Now that technology has rapidly developed to the point where colonies are autonomous, stable, and productive, most factions tend to adopt a 'hands-off' policy for laws and regulations -- in return for a constant supply of cash."

Elegant Networks (Sowers)Edit

Research-elegant-networks
  • +30 Approval on Star System
  • +10% Food on Ecstatic
  • +25% Industry on Ecstatic
  • +10% Dust on Ecstatic
  • +10% Science on Ecstatic
  • -5 Dust on improvement

Cost: 176 Industry

"Applying increasingly advanced algorithms to networks is a step towards a major goal of the Sowers: Effortless, simultaneous, bandwidth-efficient consensus. As all Sowers strive towards a common goal, they are greatly pleased at any possibility of effortless and unified decision-making that accelerates their progress."

NoteEdit

The 176 Industry cost for Elegant Networks reflects the Sowers' Builders Trait. If you're playing a custom faction with the Sower Affinity but without the Builders Trait, you will see the base 220 Industry cost.
