Tech trees

Warning: This list contains spoilers about the tech tree and endgame content, read at your own risk. Note that the list starts from early game tech to late game tech.

Please note that as of the recent Steam release most if not all of these tech trees are somewhat out of date and need to be updated, since several research options have been removed or reshuffled.
