Development Ministry

Development Ministry

"Allows you to monitor your build queue and subsidize the construction of buildings through the use of Essentia. The higher the level of the building the more buildings you can have in your queue, however the queue still builds in series not in parallel. The number of projects that can be placed in the queue is the level of the ministry plus 1."

  • Queues mean serial, not parallel, upgrades.
  • It is recommended to upgrade the Development Ministry as high as possible to allow for queues that also run while the empire's player is offline which can save a lot of time.
  • Subsidy cost equals lvl / 3 + 1. Therefore does not depend on the build time.

0fecund: "Cost to subsidize build queue, according to the page on Essentia:
subsidy = (sum of building upgrade levels) / 3
- Cost is rounded down. Example- it costs 5 Essentia to upgrade 15, 16 , or 17 levels. 18-20 levels costs 6 Essentia.
- Entire queue gets subsidized, you don't get to pick & choose a particular building upgrade to subsidize."
0Tralala French: "This ministry is extremely important if you are producing tons of ressources (or shipping in tons) and can't be in front of the game all day. It's also quite useful when your storage is about to go away (supply pod expires) to use up ressources before they're overflowing and lost."
0ore swappers: "I leveled mine to 4, then to 10 after putting down 1+4 or 1+6 glyph buildings, and never looked back since i hate losing construction times at night and even when i have level 13 buildings alot, sometimes i need to make some level 3 buildings quick such as more spaceports then it's a godsend."
0: "Note that cancelling a queued build does not return any resources."
