The Civilian Tree is the noncombat research tree for the TEC.

Planetary Shields and Improved Planet Shields were moved to the Defense Tree in Entrenchment.

Skilled Diplomats was moved to the Diplomacy Tree in Diplomacy.

The Civics Research Station was renamed the Civics Lab in Diplomacy.

IndustryEdit

Provides improved extraction methods for metal and crystal mines, trade ports for commerce, orbital refineries, plus general improvement to building rates.

Rapid Development3 Planetary improvement construction time is reduced by 25.0%. The cost of logistic slot upgrades is also reduced by 7.5%. Purely from the standpoint of the cost reduction, this requires around 10,000 credits of future logistic upgrades per level to pay for itself (corresponding to 10 ice/volcanic planets, again per level), so it is seldom worthwhile.800/100/175

EngineeringEdit

Gives access to orbital sensor drones, planet exploitation and colonization technologies, PSIDAR for detecting incoming ships, planetary shields, and improved phase jump engines.

Modular Architecture1 Reduces cost of Metal Extractor, Crystal Extractor, Frigate Factory, and Capital Ship factory by 20%/40%. It also reduces the refund for scuttling structures of these types by the same percentage, so if you plan to relocate your initial factories, it is more economical to scuttle them before researching this technology and rebuild after researching Modular Architecture.400/0/25
