In an effort to streamline the play and remove repetitious player tasks in mid-game and late-game Star Traders 4X, we have developed an additional type of upgrade. These upgrades are called Focuses and replace some Festivals in the tech tree.
The Focus is a special Colony Upgrade module that converts CP into bonuses for your Empire. While active, a Focus will consume a single Colony's CP points. The Colony is free to move other upgrades ahead of the Focus, however the bonuses will not be available while the Colony works on other projects.
|You cannot Subsidize a Focus|
Focus modules take a long time to build, and are well suited for mature worlds with complete economies and populations.
There has been a little bit of confusion about when they can be activated, so here are two images showing active and inactive, based on the Colony having other projects in the build queue.
