In this example the player has discovered the Galvanize augmentation and 3 of the Colorize augmentation of which two of them is unlocked

Augmentations are modifiers that can be added to part or block before constructing it. Augmentations adds a more cost to the part/block which is usually a new resource that is not used to construct the original part or block.

How to add an augmentation to a part/block[edit | edit source]

Almost all the augmentations need to be unlocked through the Tech-system just like new parts and blocks. When you discover an augmentation through the Research Facility (and you have the original part/block unlocked as well) you’ll be able to unlock and enable the augmentation through the info-box of that part/block.

When an augmentation is unlocked, it can be added to the a part/block before construction it through the info-box (look at the screenshot to the right). This will increase the resource cost and change the name of the part/block depending on the augmentations activated.
