Does this require a new save/colony/world/game/map/thing/stuff/computer/universe to use? No
Can I suggest something? You see the empty spaces in the research tree? Fill them. (Yes)
I've found a bug, what do I do? Tell me how you got to the bug, post a screenshot, and backup your save file because I might ask for it
Do you have the stats in detail? Get the mod, you don't need to do anything, just enter the research screen. If I put it here it might not be up-to-date
My items keep truncating, and it's really annoying what do I do? Right now the solution is to put Researchable Stat Upgrades higher up in the modlist (Thanks Hinanawi-sama). If that doesnt work join in the bug discussions!

Just a few tips on how to make ideas:
1. Does this really work as a research? Maybe your idea is better to be a special item or a special building, instead of a stat upgrade.
2. Think up of an ideal cost/tech level of your research
3. Think up of a nice name!
4. Where would it go in the research tree?
5. That tree is getting rather full, which means short but sweet researches probably have a higher chance of getting in!

i have an idea:the plant research could also boost the foraged ammount of food,so i would need less high level colonists in plantwork to be self sustainable

What about something like "Data Retention"? Makes it take longer for colonists to forget skills.

Great mod, have been hoping something similar would be implemented into the base game for a while now. If you'd like to hear it, I have an idea for a possible research project, but I'm not sure if it would be possible. I was thinking of a Tech called something like "Improved Logistics" or "Improved Storage" that essentially just doubles the stack sizes for all (or most) items. This would be immensely helpful in the late game, especially for large colonies, since it would let us hold more stuff in our existing storage without needing to expand or build new warehouses. However, I have a feeling that changing stack sizes could lead to some issues with hauling, maybe some items would become too heavy, so I don't know how easy or possible this is to do... Still I thought I'd share my thoughts while I wait for my colonists to finish building yet another 11x11 storage...

For those of us with an ungodly number of mods, how about a series of buffs to Research? Can flavour it as any of the current buzzwords of neural nets, machine learning, self optimizing programs that you'd be running on your High tech bench / multianalyzer

Hmm, if this mod loads earlier than Turret Extensions it fixes the error.
