First feature : This building scans the Cosmos and collects lot of data. Each scan needs 10,000 points to finish it. Each hour the building get 50 points + (20% of the performance). When the scan is finished there are two possibilities : great chance to find nothing or little chance to make a discovery. The chance rate (mini 15%) is increased by the building performance (10%). Example with 120 performance : 15 + (120 * (10/100) ) = 27%.
If it makes a discovery you earn Money or/and Reasearch Points (you can enable/disable). If both are enabled, the reward is divided by 2.

Second feature is available if you have enabled the Cosmos Project Events!
The data colected by all observatories in your colony are added to the project. Each phase needs lot of data and starts an event with various choices and rewards. The last phase start an big event available in my next mod! ;)

Good point on only night shift only to look at the dark sky. Adds interesting game play challenge to keep them happy on night shift. Easy to mod it that way too.

I feel like it should only be available for the night shift. Well, that's how I use it.

With so many useful things, is there any chance we could get a functional Rocket Dock ? Refuel and Load up quicker but has to be supplied by drones, rovers or shuttles ? cheers

I had tried some of your mods and you instantly became my most favorite modder of Surviving Mars.

Looking forward to the part 2 of this mod.
