Research Tree [Spaced out]


Recommended Posts

I am struggling to understand the logic of some of the research tree items in the DLC.

In particular things like conveyor chute requiring orbital research to drop things on the ground whereas the recepticle doesn't.

A landscape canvas that can be done with basic research but portrait requires orbital research.

It seems like you're forced to go into space even when you're playing on the Terra Cluster just to automate ranches for example.

There is also no consistency to the tiers, so for some items you need space first and others you need radiation first, which again forces you to have all types of research and a rocket research station for the 5th tier.

It does make sense to have tier 5 radiation as you can get that first without launching rockets, but it would make more sense to have tier 6 require the orbital research imho.

Clearly, the devs want us to use a recepticle + sweeper + dropper combo to replace the chute in the early game. :-(

Sure, it works, but its inconvenient, and will be replaced eventually in some places. And i agree with the first post, Its illogical a hole is "more advanced" than a receiver. The receiver is just a hole with a box around it.
