Survival Guide - Dust Settles: Space Center
Your space center provides you the ability to construct and launch needed satellites.
Though difficult to open, this feature will give you the ability to build and
launch satellites that will drastically improve the accuracy of missiles
used to attack and defend nuclear
weapons. It is more than worth the research
needed to open and use this feature. Spy satellites in orbit will improve the
accuracy of cruise missiles and their attack range while GPS will improve your
You will open your space center by researching all of the Rocketry topics in your advanced lab to at least 30. After you have opened your space center, it could very well be empty if you have not done the basic research required to open the ability to build satellites. Concentrate on your Tracking (to 30 for spy) and Communications (to 30 for GPS) research to open the satellites.Back to Top
Once you have opened your space center and the ability to construct at least
one satellite, you will see the tools provided for satellite construction. Your
GPS tools will sit above your spy satellite tools.
Once you have a satellite constructed, you will be able to launch it into orbit
for use. You can launch as many satellites as you have constructed at a time.
Each satellite you launch will be usable immediately, thus allowing for an immediate
increase in your defensive and offensive
Your primary limitation with the space center and satellites will be the research required to open them. It will take extensive research in the rocketry topics in your advanced labs to open the space center itself, not to mention extra research in Tracking and Communications in your basic labs to open the satellites themselves. Beyond that, you will be limited as to how many people you can assign to work on constructing satellites. Research Power Generation to increase this number.Back to Top
You can improve your satellite construction speed by researching Power Generation. This will allow you to staff more than the initial limit of 7,500, thus decreasing the number of turns it will take to build a satellite for launch.Back to Top
