All the technology upgrades I've found have a suffix which seems to determine the tier or effectiveness, such as "Tau" or "Sigma". How many of these tiers are there and which is the strongest?

  • I've heard that Theta is the most powerful or effective, but I don't know of the other ranks. – Kaizerwolf Aug 15 '16 at 0:22

There are four tiers of tech upgrades: Sigma, Tau, Theta and Omega. Their comparative strengths rank as follows:

Omega > Theta > Tau > Sigma

The stronger the upgrade, the rarer/more expensive the materials required to build it will be, as noted by @David Yell.

As noted by user @SGR, not every tech has four tiers -- four is the maximum you'll see, and the comparative ranks shown above still apply to techs with fewer tiers of upgrades.

    It's worth noting that the the higher tiers of blueprint require rarer ingredients and greater quantities too. – David Yell Aug 15 '16 at 9:18
  • Can this answer include the strength of these tiers? How much of the circle-meter fill up with a tier 3 tech, for example. – Carl Aug 15 '16 at 13:23
  • @Carl I'm not sure which circle-meter you're talking about (on holiday right now, so can't boot up the game). I did, however, add the upgrade "numbers" if that helps. Feel free to edit the answer with the information you're talking about. – pushasha Aug 15 '16 at 14:53
  • User Lockness has said they found a +5. – DCShannon Aug 15 '16 at 14:56

    Do you need all 4 tiers of an upgrade to get the bonus? I have thetha hyperdrive but won't let me go to blue galixys that need it – user163150 Aug 16 '16 at 6:48
