The Researchers' Apartments are level 2 Tech residences that are upgraded from Assistants' Domiciles. An adaquate number of inhabitants is essential for surrounding Laboratories and Academies to function at their full capacity. Just like the Level 1 Tech citizens, they generate lower taxes than the Population of either of the other two Factions.
Residences must be connected, by road, to buildings in order to be recognized as fulfilling their needs.
Each Researchers' Apartments holds 30 residents(33 with the "Space-Saving Tips" channel in effect).
Researchers unlock second level Tech buildings at the following population levels:
- 1 Researcher: Copper Mine, Chip Factory, High-Tech Weapons Factory, Mobile Harbor Defenses, Academy, Gen Farming Laboratory, Coral Breeder, Immunity Drug Manufactures
- 600 Researchers (20 residences): Information Center (normal game), Sponge Farm, Electronics Recycler, Cybernetic Factory
- 750 Researchers (25 residences): Underwater Recycling Station, Metal Converter
- 1200 Researchers (40 residences): Information Center, Geothermic Power Plant (deep ocean expansion)
It should be noted that Researchers will stop moving in after their need for Information has been unlocked at 600 Researchers if that need is not being satisfied.
- Food: Fish (25%) and Functional Food (75%)
- Drink: Functional Drinks (50%) and Immunity Drugs (50%)
- Lifestyle: Neuroimplants
- Community: City Center
- Activity: Laboratory
- Information: Information Center
In order to upgrade to level 3, 1200 Researchers (40 residences) are needed. Upgrading to Geniuses' Residences requires 6t Tools and 2t Carbon. Note: 30% of your total Researcher's Apartments can upgrade to Geniuses' Residences.
Please note that for the Genius class, the immunity drugs and the neuroimplants the Deep Ocean Expansion is required.
