Hello science fans, I've just made a simple to follow, simple to understand and simple to level up guide to get some good research levels and even completely max out without having to leave your workplace unless you need to mine some minerals or actually fetch the later items yourself. Remember that cargo, mining and hydroponics are your friends. Mostly mining. What you'll need is about 4-5 of silver, gold, uranium, plasma and 1-2 diamonds for the research part. MAT is for materials levels required, ENG is engineering, PLA is plasma, POW is power, BLU is bluespace, BIO is biological , CBT is combat, EMP is electromagnetics and DAT is data. Items labeled as (CB) is a circuit board and [MECH] requires you to fabricate the part from an exosuit fabricator. When it asks you to UPGRADE MACHINES you need to fabricate 4 micro/nano/picto/femto manipulators and the best scanner + laser you can from the stock parts you can make. Happy nerding out!
