Planetary Designations

A planet's designation determines what it does within an empire. The main way it does this is by defining the planet's primary structure. Planets can only export resources produced by their primary structure. If the primary structure produces units, the planet cannot export any resource. Some designations have primary structures that do not produce anything at all; these structures instead grant a special effect, like increasing the tech level of other planets.

The Designation Process

Planets are typically manually designated by the player, by pressing the “Designate” button. Designation is instantaneous, but it takes a couple of watches for the new primary structure to reach full production. Designating a planet temporarily reduces efficiency. Planets can only be given designations that are allowed by their current tech level and deposits.

Designations

Aetherium Processor

Planet produces and exports aetherium. TL 5 or higher. Requires aetherium deposits. Primary structure is aetherium processor.

Autonomous

Default designation for independent worlds. Cannot be designated by player. No primary structure; surplus labor is wasted. Planet also contains the militia base structure which builds basic infantry.

Chronimium Processor

Planet produces and exports chronimium. TL 7 or higher. Requires chronimium deposits. Primary structure is chronimium processor.

Chtholon Extractor

Planet produces and exports aetherium. TL 7 or higher. Requires chtholon deposits. Primary structure is chtholon extractor.

Citadel

Planet produces basic infantry and jumpmissiles. TL 5 or higher. Primary structure is citadel complex.

Consumer Goods Autofac

Planet produces and exports all 3 classes of consumer goods (organic food, durable goods, luxury goods). Primary structure is consumer goods autofac.

Foundation

Converts labor into tech levels that can be imported by other planets nearby using normal trade routes. TL 5 or higher. The planet's TL will increase to match the TL of the imperial capital if it is lower. Primary structure is foundation. This can be more efficient overall than building tech programs. Foundations cannot uplift other planets to TLs higher than that of the imperial capital.

Hexacarbide Foundry

Planet produces and exports hexacarbide. TL 4 or higher. Requires hexacarbide deposits. Primary structure is hexacarbide foundry.

Imperial Capital

Allows the player to designate and issue orders to planets within a 250LY radius. The imperial capital is the first planet that the player starts with and cannot be manually re-designated. Primary structure and other effects depend on imperial doctrine. If the imperial capital is conquered, a sector capital will become the new imperial capital. If there is no appropriate sector capital, the entire empire will be destroyed.

Infantry Academy

Planet produces various ground units. TL 3 or higher. Primary structure is infantry academy.

Infantry Equipment Autofac

Planet produces and exports the armored vehicle and exoarmor components. TL 5 or higher. Primary structure is infantry equipment autofac.

Jumpship Components Autofac

Planet produces and exports various jumpship components. TL 5 or higher. Primary structure is jumpship components autofac.

Jumpship Yards

Planet produces jumpships. TL 5 or higher. Primary structure is jumpship yards. Jumpship yards structure projects a jumpbeacon.

Ramjet Components Autofac

Planet produces and exports various ramjet components. TL 6 or higher. Planet must be in a nebula. Primary structure is ramjet components autofac.

Ramjet Yards

Planet produces ramjets. TL 5 or higher. Planet must be in a nebula. Primary structure is ramjet yards.

Sector Capital

Allows the player to designate and issue orders to planets within a 250LY radius (takes 24 hours after designation). TL 5 or higher. Must be >250 LY from the imperial capital or another sector capital and is the only designation that can be given to such planets. Primary structure and other effects depend on imperial doctrine. Vulnerable to secession. If a sector capital is conquered, some planets within 250 LY will randomly defect.

Starship Components Autofac

Planet produces and exports various starship components. TL 6 or higher. Planet must not be in a nebula. Primary structure is starship components autofac.

Starship Yards

Planet produces starships. TL 5 or higher. Planet must not be in a nebula. Primary structure is starship yards.

Trading Hub

Planet can import and export all resources, allowing it to consolidate and redistribute resources among many planets. TL 5 or higher. Primary structure is starport. Also contains the militia base structure which builds basic infantry. Surplus labor is assigned to the starport, which wastes it; it is better to assign labor to planetary defenses or the militia base.

Trillum Extractor

Planet produces and exports trillum.TL 3 or higher. Primary structure is trillum extractor.
