Is it possible to move an installed (active) upgrade from any slot to another one from the same category (without destroying it)?

If yes, how can I do that?


In the Beyond update, released August 14th 2019, you can now move technology to different slots after being installed.

Technology can now be moved after installation.

To do this, simply hover over the technology you wish to move and the "Move Technology" option will be in the context menu.

As far as I am aware, there is no way to move installed technologies around once they are installed. This is how the game has been since launch.

One other question kind of discusses this, but with a starship hyperdrive technology (which I don't think you need to craft anymore). Regardless, the only way to "move" an installed technology is to dismantle it, rebuild it, and install it where you want it to be. You'll unfortunately have to take the hit on the wasted materials.

  • Hint: A rebuild is only possible if you have the blueprint. For upgrades which you have paid for with Units (instead of Nanites) you have to find and buy it again. – PeterCo Aug 10 '18 at 13:00
  • This answer was correct until the Beyond update. Therefore I switched the "accepted answer" from this one (Timmy Jim) to the other one (Wondercricket). – PeterCo Dec 28 '19 at 13:12
