New Features

Infrastructure System

Bunker Bases have their own mini "tech" progression called Infrastructure that determines what Mods are available for nearby connected Bunker segments

There are two types of Infrastructure progressions, Garrison and Command

• Infrastructure progresses at a rate that scales up with the number of nearby, connected Infrastructure Mods (at a diminishing rate)

• E.g. Building Bunks and Lockers will speed up Garrison Infrastructure progression

Bunker Upgrades that require Infrastructure no longer depend on the Tech Tree
