Introduction

At some point in the game, every empire wants to know what is around them. Many empires will have the need to expand in order to grow economically, technologically or militarily. All of these require exploration. After all, you can't properly defeat your rivals if you don't know where they are. This article goes into the intricacies of exploration and expansion, as well as the needs and basic strategies of each.

5.7 - Planetary Engineering and Artificial Worlds

Once you are sufficiently technologically advanced, your options for colonization grow substantially and you are no longer bound to the worlds that the universe placed for you. Through the Stellar Manipulation Technology, you may build your own special worlds. There are two types of worlds that may be built: Ring Worlds and Sphere Worlds. Both types are considerably better than the worlds the universe started with as they hold more population and facility space than you can generally fit in an entire sector's worth of planets.
