A techprof subpersona core instantly completes the current research project when used.


Techprof subpersona cores cannot be crafted nor bought from traders. Instead they can be acquired as a reward for performing quests. Note that quest rewards are selected with a weighted random generator, so there is no way to guarantee access to a core in a given play-through. Anecdotally, it is often reported that the increased number of reward options added by the DLC dilute the reward pool with more options.

They can also rarely be found in ancient shrines.


Techprof subpersona cores can be used to instantly complete the research project that is currently selected for research by selecting a colonist, right-clicking the device, and selecting 'Use techprof subpersona core'.

Note that this only works on research projects that could otherwise research. Research without either the necessary prerequisites or techprints cannot be completed instantly using the core.


This can be used to quickly complete a long research such as the spaceship research, or can be used in an emergency to complete mortars or gun crafting.
