Research Tree Mod

Author of the Research Tree Mod: Fluffy

The Research Tree Mod modifies the vanilla research tab generating a new, better, research tree.

Research Tree Mod features

  • Automatically generated to maximize readability.
  • Shows research projects, buildings, plants and recipes unlocked by each research project.
  • Projects can be queued, and colonists will automatically start the next project when the current research project completes.
  • Search functionality to quickly find research projects.

Additional notes

The placement of projects (nodes) is automated to minimize the number of crossings between dependancies (edges), and reduce the total length of these edges. There are many possible scenarios in which this can lead to placements that may appear non-optimal. Sometimes they really are non-optimal, sometimes they just appear to be so. See the technical section here for more information.

Compatibility notes

Research projects added by other mods and their requirements are automatically parsed and the tree layout will be updated accordingly. However, the ResearchPal Mod implements a lot of the same functionality as this mod, and the research queue will likely not work correctly if both mods are loaded.

Removing the Research Tree Mod from a saved game can cause errors when loading, but these should not affect gameplay, and they will go away after saving.
