Population Boom

From Alpha Centauri Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A population boom is one of the major advantages that can be gained in the game. By reaching +6 Growth in a base, the base's population will grow by 1 per turn with a few restrictions.

  • Population boom growth is still limited by the base's current population limit
  • The base must have a net gain of at least 2 nutrients

Every faction can gain +2 growth from the following.

Depending on faction aversion, one or more society models can be used to obtain the remaining +Growth upon researching the appropriate technological advance.


The "odd growth" factions, those that start with a +1 or -1 Growth, must aim for +7 growth instead.


Alternatively, the faction in a game controlling the Cloning Vats forces all of their bases into population boom mode.
