Voidtrain is full of crafting things, but due to the multi-phase research tree, you will not have much opportunity to use your craftings at the early stages of the game. Multi-phase research tree requires you to accumulate a lot of materials in order to unlock new structures and other advantageous features. In our Voidtrain Research Complete Guide, we will go over how research works and each step you must unlock along the road.
Research Complete Guide
Research is going to play an important role in your Voidtrain experience. It is divided into phases, each of which has up to four separate technologies. Before moving on to the next Phase, you should investigate all technologies in the current Phase.
The research feature is available in the early stages of the game because as soon as you have gotten used to your new train, you will be prompted to make a Research Table.
How To Craft The Research Table
Creating The Research Table is the easiest thing about the whole research journey ahead of you. You only need 4 scrap metals and 4 planks of wood to do it. Just find the necessary amounts of the items around you and then open your Crafting Book to craft a Research Table in just seconds.
After you crafted it, just put it wherever you want in your train and now you can start researching. The first phase on the table will be available as soon as you place it. Completing the technologies in the phases are going to be simple as you only need to have the required resources on your inventory.
The entire research tree is divided into phases. When you finish all of the research from one phase, you can move on to the next, and so on until you have finished everything. Sometimes a created item that is unlocked through research in the same Phase is required for one piece of research. Aside from stat enhancements, you must still create the actual things once the research is finished – this often necessitates the same materials used to complete the study.
