be Torian and 100% production on research and focus on social/military is how i can compete with AI on suicidal
There are two strategies to maximizing the output from factories or labs. If you build both factories or labs, you can't fully fund both, so instead only build factories or labs.
(1) build only labs, set global and research spending to 100%, and on planets set the focus to either military or social
Adv: Labs produced more than factories at the same level.
Tech Capital gives a 100% bonus vs. the Manu Capital's 33%.
Other planetary improvements provide research bonuses.
R. Galactic resources provide a research bonus, no resources boost manufacturing.
Disadv: Can't produce all three military, social, and research on a planet, only two at the most.
(2) build only factories, set global spending to 100%, set military/social totaling 100% (research to 0%), and on planets set the focus to research.
Adv: Can produce all three military, social, and research on a planet.
Disadv: See the advantages of the all labs strategy.
Both of these strategies will boost your output but also your spending, so you need to master making money in GalCivII as well. You want to grow your population quickly by keeping morale at 100% until your population reaches its max. Choose the super breeder ability or the 40% population growth race bonus! Research economic and morale techs and grab as many economic and morale resources as you can.
