    One thing you might find useful is this thread in the General strategy forum, and the spread sheet I posted there. I've found that it makes planning beelines easier since you can tell when you're going to get which choices.

    How so?

    Ind. Base -> Ind. Econ. -> Inf. Net. -> Plan. Net. -> Ind. Auto

    certainly works, but so should the following:

    Inf. Net. -> Ind. Base -> Ind. Econ. -> Plan. Net. -> Ind. Auto

    This is assuming Darsnan used CTRL+F2 to set up the techs, which seem to be the case given the current tech choices.

    Thank you for the information, Comrade Corellion. It seems you are more knowledgeable than I in this area, and thus well suited to the office of Secretary of Science and Social Engineering.

    I had understood a "beeline" to be a plan whereby one decides to select all technologies on a certain path when one has the ability to, and was not aware that there was a method of planning what leads our scientists would obtain at any particular time. This knowledge will be invaluable fr our scientists in the future, and I will do my best to learn from those more enlightened than I on this subject.

    Beeline for Ind Auto. Therefore Ind Base

    I suggest Information Networks. While the Industrial Automation beeline is indeed important, Planetary Networks is also required for its conclusion. Moreover, Information Networks, followed by Planetary Networks, will give us access to Planned economics, with significant gains for our population growth and industrial production. While I agree that all of our efforts ought to be directed toward researching the beeline to Industrial Automation, as we do so I suggest that we should aim first at Planetary Networks, which means initially developing the more small-scale networks allowing information exchange within a base.

    Though we have just arrived here on Planet, we cannot allow complacency and stagnation to take hold, when the prospects for enlightenment lie closer that ever before. We therefore now face the ever-important decision of which facet of enlightenment to direct our attentions towards for the time being.

    Doctrine: Mobility will greatly improve our mobility, and allow us to quickly explore and map our new home.
    Information Networks will help us to better organise the data we gain from our research, greatly speeding up our efforts in that area.
    Industrial Base will greatly improve our efficiency in manufacturing small goods. It also affords us the opportunity to create better protected military units, and even offers us the chance to acquire much material wealth with the Merchant Exchange.
    Social Psych will reward our curiosity with great insight into the machinations of the human mind. After all, people are social creatures, and to learn about their habits will allow us to better manipulate them for the greater good.

    You have three days, and this is a decision-making poll.
Working...
