The Underwell: Tri-Laxian Trade Secret

Hello once again! Today we have another lore-heavy booster, and it’s to do with the Tri-Laxians again!  The Tri-Laxians are a technologically advanced race of beings. They operate as a hivemind of sorts and they share their every thought, which leads to them being almost unable to deceive one another, while combining the individual brilliance of each Tri-Laxian into one big computing unit. This in turn leads to incredible scientific research and pace of progress.  Thousands of years ago, the Tri-Laxians formed an alliance with Humanity. Both races had begun interstellar travel relatively recently and were quite new to this …

The Underwell: Ductile Metals Booster

Henlo agen, your friendly neighbourhood blog writer here! Today we are going to take the Examine option to the first booster one of our game designers came up with: Ductile Metals.    You know extruders? The painful device that works far too slowly? It is one of my peeves in the game. We have the synthesizer: at 30m/s, it is hardly a bottleneck in any build. Heaters, presses and cutters all work in a perfect unison. But we need to make wire. Suddenly we have to split a production line three ways, and there just is no way to do …

The Underwell: Efficient Printing Booster

Hello again! Today we will be talking about the Efficient Printing booster. If you have ever tried your hand at printing, you will undoubtedly know just how much ink it consumes.

It will also save a lot of effort, of not having to import all the inks. We really should maintain those poor printers more carefully.   Honestly, I am not sure how many of …

The Underwell: Basic Optimizer Booster

Howdy-do engineers! Today, we are going to be taking a look at another common booster. Tomorrow you will get something more unique again, but we feel that it is good to highlight all sorts of boosters, the less interesting ones as well as those that require us to talk about… Wootz steel or whatever. This is one of the less interesting ones. Basic Optimizer. It, well, optimizes your substance input. In a basic way. You will use 5% less input for the original output.  There’s honestly not much to say about this one. I’d love to tell you more about …

The Underwell: Time Warp Booster

Hello Engineers. Most of the boosters we’ll be highlighting are legendary or epic, but today we’re unveiling a common booster – the Time Warp! It increases the input and output in the factory – and is a simple way to speed up production.      Sometimes we’re in a rush and really need those extra resources to finish a quest, get the resources needed for that uber-cool printed tile that you can’t wait to show off, or to simply send a contract. Instead of waiting, you can boost with the Time Warp. And you’ll be able to do it often, …
