Section 1: The Basic Overview
=============================
Section 1.1 Technology Overview/Practical Applications
------------------------------------------------------
In Galactic Civilizations technology has an impact on your overall success. Not
only does your final score have a factor in it that is affected by how much and
how quickly you researched, but it can also help you win every kind of victory.
Take for example a military victory, without researched advanced weapons and 
defenses your military will be inferior. In an allied victory gifting techs to
the other races can help form closer ties. In a cultural victory advances can
deepen your influence on other races. And finally in a tech victory, it's all
important. 

Researching a technology gives you several things. First it gives you something
to trade during negotiations. Second it can give you more advanced units. Third
it can give you more advanced social projects, wonders, achievements, or trade
goods you can develop. Fourth it can open up new options, like diplomacy and
trade. Fifth it opens up the way to research more technologies in the future. 
Sixth it gives you added benefits that can increase your population growth, 
military strength or other aspects of your civilization. 

Section 1.2 Categories of Technology
------------------------------------
Technology in itself is wonderful but it's not a single unit. Rather techs are
divided into several different categories; these categories are also color
coded. 
Weapons (red): Military technology including weapons
Communications (yellow): Culture, Diplomacy and trade are included 
Medical (green): Planet Quality and Population Growth are included
Propulsion (blue): Improvements in speed are included
Defense (purple): Including shields. 
Industrial (orange) Includes production and manufacturing.

Section 1.3 Technological Victory
---------------------------------
In order to achieve a victory by the tech route you must research every tech
in the game until you get to the Final Frontier, and the next stage of human
existence. Tech victories are time intensive and don't pay very well in points
so if you are trying to for a high score, don't bother. 
===============================================================================

Section 2: Boosting Your Research
=================================
Section 2.1 Improving Your Research Stat
----------------------------------------
The first way you can boost your research is in your choice of political party
at the beginning of the game. Choosing the technologists will give you the 
biggest boost to research, or choose the universalists for a smaller boost.

When you go to choose the abilities your civilization will have you have the 
option of putting some points into the research category. The points you can 
spend on improving research are as follows:
Advanced (1 point) 10%
Gifted (2 points) 20%
Master (4 points) 30%
Ultra (6 points) 50%

Throughout the galaxy are anomalies that can be explored with a survey ship. 
You start the game with one survey ship and can build more as needed. One of
the affects of anomalies is to boost your research of a technology. 

You can also affect the speed of research by raising the percentage of your
taxes that goes towards research. 

There are also random events that pop up that temporarily increase the level
of research going on in the galaxy.

When you invade a planet you are sometimes presented with three options. Once 
in a while one of the options will give you a research gain, this may or may 
not represent other penalties, and of course also affects your alignment. 

If you build a starbase on a purple research icon you will get a research
bonus. You can improve how much of a bonus you get by adding modules to upgrade
mining of the resource. 

Some technologies you research actually directly benefit your research stat as
well. They are:
Advanced Artificial Intelligence
Genetic Mapping
Hyper Computers
Omni Computers
TerraComputers
Ultra Computers


Section 2.2: Other Ways to Gain Research
----------------------------------------
Besides researching it yourself there are several other ways you can gain
research. One way is through diplomacy. You can trade for the research by 
offering something your opponent wants, or simply demand that they give you
what you are asking. Your skill in diplomacy will affect how successful you are
as well as the strength of your civilization. Some techs are valued more highly
than others. Particularly ones that take a long time to research, ones that are
highly advanced, and ones that provide a way to build powerful military units. 

You can also sometimes gain research when you successfully invade a star system
of an enemy who knows a research tech that you don't. 

Sometimes the United Planets hold a vote that civilizations should share techs
among each other. If the result is that they should you will gain knowledge of
an appropriate number of new technologies. 

Section 2.3: Building Research Improvements
-------------------------------------------
Trade Goods that can improve your research:
Hyper Computers (20)
Nano Recorders (10)

Achievements that can improve your research:
Omega Research Center (50)
Technological Capital (100)

Social Projects that can improve your research:
Galactic Research Center (45)
Info Net (10)
Medical Center (5)
Neural Net (25)
Orbital Hospital (5)
Research Center (33)
Research Lab (25)
Trade Center (15)

There are no super projects or wonders that improve research. 

===============================================================================

Section 3: The Tech Tree 
========================
Section 3.0 Good and Evil Techs
-------------------------------
Your alignment in the game controls your ability to research certain techs. For
some you have to be good and others you must be evil. Alignment, for those who
don't know is rated on a scale from 0 to 100. 0 being evil and 100 being good.
(50 would place you as neutral). In order to get a tech that requires you to be
good you must have an alignment equal to or higher than the requirement. In 
order to get a tech that requires you to be bad you must have an alignment 
equal to or less than the requirement. 

Good Techs:
Xeno Trade Persuasion 65
Cure for Depression 70
Hyper Warp 70
Benevolence 70
Hyper Trade 80
The Better Way 90
Galactic Pacifism 95

Evil Techs:
The Dark Side 10
Galactic Domination Philosophy 10
Xeno Brain Washing 10
Advanced Slavery 25
Thought Police 30
Smuggling 30
Master Race 30
Mind Terror Weapons 30
