Gene processor

Gene processor

A genetic analysis and processing system. Placed near a gene assembler, it increases the maximum genetic complexity of the xenogerms you can assemble. Building multiple gene processors will increase the genetic complexity limit further.

Gene processors connect to gene assemblers to increase the maximum complexity of xenogerms they can produce.

Acquisition

Gene processors can be constructed once the Gene processor research project has been completed. They require Steel 100 Steel, Plasteel 25 Plasteel, Component 2 Component, 9,000 ticks (2.5 mins) of work, and a Construction skill of 6.

Summary

Each gene processor raises the maximum genetic complexity of its connected gene assembler by +2. Multiple processors can be connected at the same time, up to a maximum of 100 for a total of +200 complexity.

Gene processors must be powered to have any effect. If the processor loses power during recombination, and the maximum complexity falls below the required complexity, then recombination will be put on hold. Gene assemblers must also be active when the player is designing a new xenotype with the gene assembler.

When its connected gene assembler is not in use, the gene processor has no effect, and can be safely turned off.
