== What is the Harbor? ==
+
== Introduction ==
You'll first notice the construction site for the Harbor once you unlock your first research from the Arctic Future. It will appear on a small island area to the left of your city grid. As a construction site it will not yet be functional, you will need to unlock the "Promethium Extraction" research for it to become a working Harbor.
+
When you reach the Future era, you will begin to discover alternative versions of the future. You'll first notice a construction site at the beginning of each version. They will appear outside of your city. As a construction site it will not yet be functional, you will need to unlock a technology in each Future version.
 +
Once built, these settlements allow you to launch expeditions for the production of special goods.
 +
For an expedition you will have to hire a crew aboard your conveyance. You will also ensure that your transportation is properly maintained to maximize the performance of your shipments. But beware, each crew member will have specific skills, so you have to choose them according to the purpose you're targeting. Also repairs the vehicle will cost you goods.
 +
Finally, be aware that you will be able to update your extraction site by unlocking a technology. This will allow you, for example, to hire an additional crew member or have more crew members.
 +
Below you will find the various special goods you can produce ''(click on the desired one for more details)''.

The Harbor will allow you to select a crew to send on a journey with a ship and bring back a special resource - Promethium. You will need Promethium to progress forward on the Tech Tree, it's a resource you cannot trade with other players and it cannot be plundered as well. To select a crew member you will need to pay 25 Arctic Future goods of a specific type. The crew members themselves have various strengths and weakness which will result in extra effects such as additional or less Promethium, longer or shorter journey time, less or more ship damage, etc.
+
== Era Outpost ==
 +
When you reach the Space Age Mars, you will begin to manage a space colony. To visit your very own colony, click on the rocket in your city. Producing era goods requires you to gain a special good.
  
[[File:Arctic2 harboroverview.png|700px|center]]
+
Open the Campaign Map and select the Space Age to be able to see where to expand to. Once you have made your claim on the Campaign, you will find special goods deposits on some of the sectors you have conquered. Click on the special good to send an exploration team to it. Depending on the good, this may take some time to complete! Once the exploration phase is complete, you can either battle or negotiate for the special good to process it further.
  
In the image above you can already see the stats for your next journey (-15% damage, 50 Promethium, 1 day for the trip). The standard damage is 15% per trip, though it can go up or down depending on the crew you have selected. Whenever your ship returns from a journey, you can switch to the "Repair" tab in the Harbor and if your ship has reached a damage threshold you will be able to repair it using goods. There are several damage thresholds and the more damaged your ship becomes the less Promethium it will bring back but also the journey time will be longer.
+
Once the special good has been extracted, the goods building in your colony can process it further and provide you with plenty of new your goods to trade, research and build with!
  
[[File:Arctic2 shipstatus.png|700px|center]]
+
Once you reach Space Age Asteroid Belt, you will unlock [[Synthesizers]]. A synthesizer is a type of goods building that lets you produce goods in your main city that you previously had the ability to produce in your colony or collect on the continents map.
  
If you choose not to repair your ship at all, you will still get Promethium but a very small amount and the journey will be very long.
+
In Space Age Asteroid Belt you will unlock the [[Mars Ore Synthesizer]] and the Mars goods synthesizers.
  
== Harbor Upgrades ==
+
In Space Age Venus you will unlock the [[Asteroid Ice Synthesizer]] and the Asteroid goods synthesizers.
The Harbor itself can improve over time as you unlock new researches. The second level for your Harbor comes with the Arctic Stations research. This will improve your journey stats by increasing the Promethium amount (57 instead of 50) and decreasing the time for your journeys (21 hours instead of 24). Additionally, unlocking Arctic Stations will also give you the leveling ability for your crew members.
 
The third level is unlockable with Arctic Mining. Now you can gain 65 Promethium and increase your speed to 18 hours. Additionally you can select 4 crew-members instead of 3 to maximize your profit!
 
  
Every time a person is a part of the crew, they get a certain amount of experience points. Once the required experience amount is reached and you decide to pay for the level-up with Arctic Future goods, they will level up! Naturally, the higher the level the greater results of their work. But also the higher level you want to get, the more experience points that crew member will need.
 
  
== Crew Members ==
+
Below you will find the various special goods you can produce.
Below you will find a list of all the crew members and their skills. Do note that not all crew members are automatically available to you - some of them require unlocking specific researches.

Introduction

When you reach the Future era, you will begin to discover alternative versions of the future. You'll first notice a construction site at the beginning of each version. They will appear outside of your city. As a construction site it will not yet be functional, you will need to unlock a technology in each Future version. Once built, these settlements allow you to launch expeditions for the production of special goods. For an expedition you will have to hire a crew aboard your conveyance. You will also ensure that your transportation is properly maintained to maximize the performance of your shipments. But beware, each crew member will have specific skills, so you have to choose them according to the purpose you're targeting. Also repairs the vehicle will cost you goods. Finally, be aware that you will be able to update your extraction site by unlocking a technology. This will allow you, for example, to hire an additional crew member or have more crew members.

Era Outpost

When you reach the Space Age Mars, you will begin to manage a space colony. To visit your very own colony, click on the rocket in your city. Producing era goods requires you to gain a special good.

Open the Campaign Map and select the Space Age to be able to see where to expand to. Once you have made your claim on the Campaign, you will find special goods deposits on some of the sectors you have conquered. Click on the special good to send an exploration team to it. Depending on the good, this may take some time to complete! Once the exploration phase is complete, you can either battle or negotiate for the special good to process it further.

Once the special good has been extracted, the goods building in your colony can process it further and provide you with plenty of new your goods to trade, research and build with!

Once you reach Space Age Asteroid Belt, you will unlock Synthesizers. A synthesizer is a type of goods building that lets you produce goods in your main city that you previously had the ability to produce in your colony or collect on the continents map.

In Space Age Asteroid Belt you will unlock the Mars Ore Synthesizer and the Mars goods synthesizers.

In Space Age Venus you will unlock the Asteroid Ice Synthesizer and the Asteroid goods synthesizers.


Below you will find the various special goods you can produce.
