Default How can we get High Energy Weapons?

I have'nt played a game long enough to get to those, so I was wondering how to get them.
Also, is there any point in researching crystalurgy past the first level? Since the expected results shows "none", why not say "done" if there's nothing else down the road?

Default Re: How can we get High Energy Weapons?

a) [Data/TechArea.txt]
has one prereq: Propulsion, level 7.

b) [same file]
The same file appears to define maximum tech levels independently of effects. These tech level maximums don't correspond completely to the components (for instance, you can only research 1 level of Fighter tech, but some entries in Data/Components.txt like Small Quantum Engines require up to level 4); likewise, some tech areas are defined that don't seem to be prereqs for anything else, like null-space weaponry. There are also sound files for events that you can't cause, like creating stars...

a) Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely check those out

b) Hey, it must be components not used by the demo... I wonder how I imagined that... ;-))
