How do I tell?

Posted on Wednesday, December 26, 2018

Hi there!  I'm new to the game.  I only have the base game and the free dlc's.  Question... I understand a little about how the game works but for the life of me, I can't seem to figure out what each tech will allow me to build/construct etc.  For example... if I build a constructor with the intent of mining a resource, which tech will "open up" that option to construct a mining ring?  Understand, that's just an example.  I know I might not be explaining it very well but that's my issue.  Simply put... how do I tell which tech will allow me to build/construct/access which item?
