For Empire Improvements, see Empire Improvement.

Improvements can be made on any System to accentuate its naturally occurring values of FIDS FIDS, at the cost of Industry Industry and/or Dust Dust.

SSI Unique Horatio Greenhouse Shields 64x32

Greenhouse Shields

+20 Food on Star System 450 Industry -3 Dust

Note: 450 Industry in return for a constant +20 Food is almost never worthwhile. Only useful in a start-up colony and in that case it takes 10+ turns to build and Farm Exploitation would give you a much better return. Or depending on the Planet types in the System, Sustainable Farms or Epigenetic Crop Seeding are both much cheaper with returns based on Population not a flat amount.

Note: One of the best faction-specific Improvements, this gives you a flat +30 Industry for a reasonable 450 Dust. You get it fairly early, too, about the same research cost as Graviton Manipulation (1800 Science).
