Terraforming Basics

Terraforming is the process by which corporation members upgrade their alliance's planet to unlock better ships for their members to buy.

Terraforming is accessed from from the Alliance Planet menu.

Resources and Black Dollars are donated to the planet to increase its terraforming progress.

The basic unit of Terraforming are Research Units (RU). The more valuable a resource is, the more RUs it provides.

As a planet advances in levels, the RU cost to terraform it increases. The "Gaia" ranks especially requires serious and significant investments to unlock.
