Question about multiple bases researching the same topic
« on: October 22, 2019, 05:21:47 am »
I've never had to do this before as labs in only one base was enough for me in the original game.  But with the massive tech trees brought about by megamods, I've been wondering about something especially since the wiki doesn't seem to make any mention of it.  What happens when two bases with labs research the same topic?  Do they both add to the total, or are they working separately thus making it a waste of time for one base?

I'm curious about that as well.

Separately.

So there's no point and only one base should handle the topic while the other base does a different one.  Thanks, this'll help out in planning research.

You can research the same live alien in two bases... it will give you two different results.

It's not technically the same alien, but two aliens of the same type and rank in separate bases.  I get what you mean though, and I suppose that scenario is a perfect example of how researching in multiple bases works.
