Character Scientist.png
Make a breakthrough in the field of energy and become a specialist in thermonuclear fusion!
Scientists have long been dreaming of being able to obtain energy through thermonuclear fusion, but due to the complexity of the process were not able to do so.
The residents ask the Mayor to: start research
The scientists of Megapolis are confident that they are close to a breakthrough. After all, nature itself gave them a real miracle - a plasma lake. The only thing left is to turn the plasma into pure energy!
Tips
This timed quest requires 450 Megabucks sm.png (for assets, if purchased) and 2,000,000 Coin sm.png (for contracts, diagrams, buildings and foundation purchases).
The step rewards (except for assets, structures and certificates) accumulates to 5,300 Experience sm.png and 35,400 Coin sm.png.
