Overview Edit

As opposed to FIDS, Strategic Resources are not consumed. Strategic Resources are found on Planets in quantities of 1-3. You can access the Strategic Resources by having the corresponding Technology and colonizing the planet. Strategic Resources also boost the FIDS output of the planet depending on the resource. Unless the System is blockaded, the Strategic Resource (but not its planet effects) is shared with the rest of the Empire.

Some ship classes and modules, and some Improvements, require a particular Strategic Resource to be built.

Availability Edit

There is only a limited number of each strategic resource in a galaxy, depending on the size of the galaxy and the galaxy resource setting:

Galaxy Size Number of each Resource
Low Normal High
Tiny 3 6 9
Small 6 12 18
Medium 9 18 27
Large 12 24 36
Huge 15 30 45

Empire effects Edit

Strategic resources decrease the 1002industrySmall cost of ship modules that require them by 10% per number owned, up to 4. If you have 4 of a strategic resource, you have a resource abundance, which reduces ship module costs by an additional 20%.

Quantity 1002industrySmall Cost Modifier
1 -10%
2 -20%
3 -30%
4+ -60%

These bonuses stack multiplicatively with other modifiers to module cost.
