Legion Expansion : Economy

Profile

Due to superior engineering, potential fabrication throughput is generally greater than that of the MLA. It is however more energy intensive, and many new commanders have made the mistake of neglecting to build enough energy production to power their fast growing war machine.

Building up to and stabilizing at a t2 economy is often an important goal. While victory can sometimes be won through swift action, the Imperial Legion starts to come into its true power with a developed and mature industry.

Metal

Mass Extractor

Resource Production

T1 metal
Unable to expand as fast as the MLA, Legion T1 metal extractors have been outfitted with additional drills to produce +1 metal. As they are more expensive, it is important to make sure expansions are defensible before taking them.

Production

+8 metal/sec

T2

Advanced Mass Extractor

Adv Resource Production

T2 metal
Despite superior metal extraction technology, only so much can be extracted from any given metal field. Legion’s T2 metal extractors produce -1 metal income compared to the MLA.

Production

+19 metal/sec

Energy

Power Catalyst

Resource Production

T1 energy
Conventional methods of energy production using fusion core stacks have been in use for so long that no further efficiency improvements are possible. Legion power catalysts do not differ from their MLA counterparts.

Production

+600 energy/sec

Advanced Power Catalyst

Resource Production

Harvesting directly from black holes, Legion can produces phenomal amounts of energy at relatively low cost. Though the technique produces 60% more energy than the MLA’s advanced fusion generators, it is inherently unstable and will violently explode when structural integrity is compromised. Make sure to space them out to avoid chain reactions.

Production

+6000 energy/sec

Storage

Resource Storage

T1 storage
Uses black hole compression to store considerably more resources within a given area. As with all technology related to black holes, it is prone to explode when destroyed.

Storage
