- Archaeology Ministry
The Archaeology Ministry is the center or study of relics and ruins from the Great Race, and the studies of naturaly occuring wonders of beauty and resources. The difficulty in making advances in this research make upgrading and maintaining this building is costly both in time and resources.
- Gas Giant Settlement Platform
The Gas Giant Settlement Platform is a permanent structure which allows settlement of a gas giant. The gas giant settlement platform does not allow you to settle gas giants outside your species' range of habitle orbits, for that you need a terraforming platform as well.
- Oversight Ministry
The Oversight Ministry reduces the amount of time buildings take to upgrade through better project management. All buildings take 3% less time to build per level of the Oversight Ministry for a max of 90% less time. Like most building except the university and genetics lab, the effect only takes place on the planet which the Oversight Ministry is built on.
- Subspace Supply Depot
The subspace supply depot (SSD) is an amazing technology created by Lacuna Expanse Corp. Only they know exactly how it works, but it enables you to build a fledgling colony much faster than you could on your own.
- Terraforming Platform
The Terraforming Platform is a building that allows you to inhabit planets or gas giants outside of your species' range of inhabitable orbits.
The way the University works is that every upgrade updates your empire's tech level. This implies that losing or gaining University buildings does not affect your tech level.
