Hi everyone. This week we focused on the new research system.The first version is shown in the picture above. The whole research is now grouped in currently 11 categories like extraction, city building and agriculture. Within these categories you can research between 2 and 4 chunks that each cost a single research fund. Some chunks only consist of researching a new tool (like mining) other chunks research a set of 2 or 3 upgrades. Also new buildings will be available for research later...
We still have to put some work into this to make sure it works well with the existing missions and also with new content.
And next week we have to talk about theses guys which will meet on the next campaign planet we are also currently working on...
The following image shows the new extended navigation mode. Currently it’s quite difficult to get an overview of available resource fields, gold depots and special buildings like temples or native tribes.
To use it you enter the navigation mode (by zooming out, pressing space or by clicking the compass icon). The new panel on the left allows the selection of a ground type, an environment object, a special building or any other building. The selected type will be highlighted on the planet with a light turquoise. You can also leave the navigation mode to have a closer look.
The feature described above is currently not available in the game and will be part of alpha 15 coming in early September.
“The demo is quite charming... There's already evidence of a decent game”

“Imagine Earth is a refreshingly streamlined and charming apporach to civilization sims - and one with plenty of room to grow as it wades through Early Access.”
“This environmentally-conscious title may very well prove to generate news in the months to come.”
