Colonies are player owned positions that sit in a single location within the game, either on a planet, moon, asteroid, in orbit of a planet, or even floating in free space.
Colonies are where business is transacted, ore is processed, goods are manufactured, and ships are built. A colony is required to perform research or grow crops.
Types of Colonies
Colony Design Philosophy
- A colony should never be completely self-sufficient. It should require imports from other colonies within and without the system.
- A colony should be able to specialize to do one thing very well and other things not so well as a consequence.
- No colony should be able to do everything well.
