Photon Cannon Upgrade is a starship technology.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Photon Cannon Upgrades, contained within Photon Cannon Modules, are procedurally generated upgrades granting bonuses to the starship's Photon Cannon.

Upgrade properties[edit | edit source]

Photon Cannon Upgrades grant at least one of the following bonuses:

  • Heat Dispersion
  • Fire Rate
  • Damage

Up to three Photon Cannon Upgrades can be installed in each inventory of the starship. Installing four or more upgrades in a given inventory will disable all upgrades of that type until the upgrade count is reduced to three or less.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Photon Cannon Upgrades can only be obtained from opening Photon Cannon Modules.

Photon Cannon Upgrade can be repaired using the following resources:

Photon Cannon Upgrade can be dismantled after construction, returning the following resources:

Installing[edit | edit source]

Upgrade modules follow a static progression. The generation seed is used for all module families at the same time. During module installations it goes up by one. The new module they change into correlates to their order of installation. If the game is reloaded, the exact same pool will be offered to the player, no matter the order they install other modules.

Example: An S-class module of "Ancient Ion Cycler" is loaded on the third installation no matter in what order the former modules are installed or their class. If the same S-class module is used third again, it will once again be the "Ancient Ion Cycler". Only if used second or fourth will it change to something else.
