Does that mean every level, it doubles the cost of each item to research or does it mean like the materials to level it up?
If it means the first, then I should stop upgrading my research lab huh...
After upgrading to level 5 of the Impulse Drive, the base speed of small cargo ships doubles, and they proceed to use the impulse engine instead for speed upgrades.
So after level 5 of impulse drive, small cargo ships are affected by impulse drive and NOT combustion drives? O.o man what have I been wasting resources on then.
The cost of research.
Level 1 of uberness costs 2 metal and 1 crystal
Level 2 of uberness costs 4 metal and 2 crystal
level 3 of uberness costs 8 metal and 4 crystal.
Combustion drives still speed up large cargo's.
And large cargos are way more sexy than small cargo.
I can tell you.
Impulse Drive is a technology required for Heavy Fighters, Cruisers, Colony Ships, and Bombers. After getting Impulse Drive 5, Small Cargo Ships will double in speed and use Impulse Drive for speed upgrades instead of Combustion Drive. After Hyperspace Drive level 8 is reached, the Bomber uses the faster Hyperspace Drive rather than the Impulse Drive.
You are correct that the Small cargo's don't use Combustion anymore.
Why this is happening no idea.
