Future of Research fertilities

Map with the more important fertilities (click to enlarge)


  • Either starting faction will work, however Tycoons have an advantage due to cheap land based access to coal and oil for carbon and kerosene production chains. There are also uranium containing islands in the SE corner of the map that can support multiple nuclear power plants.
  • All Starting Positions (except for Hibashi) are randomised, while the map (and fertility) is not.
  • Note that of the three possible Starting Islands, the upper one has River/Sand for concrete/microchips/glass, the right one has both River/Sand and a Hydro Plant slot, while the left one has neither.
  • If you settle more than 8 islands, Tori will present you an ultimatum.The objectives can be completed with 8 islands or less, which will allow you to remain at peace with Tori. If you do plan to remain peaceful, you should settle all the islands and underwater plateaus that you will need as soon as possible, to prevent Tori from settling them first.
  • There is no need to go past engineer level of your starting faction, unless you need more tax income, or want the tier 4 technologies. Be wary though, that once you reach genius level, you will have crime in your cities, and you require executives to build police stations.
