Mountain Observatory is a Rocky Mountains Timed Quest in which the player has 168 hours to build and upgrade a total of 4 new fixed structures with assets leading to exclusive rewards. It was released as part of an update on January 12, 2017.
"Astronomers and engineers have announced plans to build the largest observatory in the Rocky Mountains!"
"The residents are asking the mayor to: build an observatory"
"Build the Mountain Observatory and its infrastructure. Study the universe, get a new title and receive lots of gifts!"
Stage 1 - High Mountains
"High mountains are the best place for watching the stars. That's where you'll build the best observatory in Megapolis!"
"Go to the Rocky Mountains, the observatory engineers are waiting for you."
Great! Time to start building the Mountain Observatory!
Stage 2 - Institute of Applied Astronomy
"The Institute of Applied Astronomy will gather the best experts in Megapolis under its roof and prepare a plan for the development of the Mountain Observatory."
"Start building the Institute of Applied Astronomy."
You're doing great, but there's lots more work to do!
Stage 3 - Information Processing Department
"You will need an Information Processing Department and its powerful supercomputer to work with the data coming from the observatory."
"Build the Institute of Applied Astronomy and start building the Information Processing Department."
Great! You get materials as a reward for your work. Use them wisely.
Stage 4 - Mountain Observatory
"You can start building the future observatory now that the infrastructure for it is complete."
"Build the Information Processing Department, agree on the final observatory project and start building it."
Good work! You get building materials as a reward. They're in your Storehouse!
Stage 5 - Telescope Assembly Facility
"Your observatory will receive images that are 10 times clearer than the pictures taken by the Hubble Telescope. You will need a very powerful supercomputer to process these images."
"Build the Telescope Assembly Facility and continue building the Mountain Observatory. Don’t forget to test the power of the supercomputer in the Information Processing Department."
The Mountain Observatory is almost done! You get a Building Certificate for 10 materials as a reward. Be sure to tell your friends!
Stage 6 - Mountain Observatory
"The assembly of the segmented mirror for your Observatory is a very precise process that can only be entrusted to professionals."
"Start building the Stellar Cartography Service, assemble the mirror for the main telescope and build the Mountain Observatory."
Excellent, the Mountain Observatory has started to work, and it's all thanks to you!
Stage 7 - Researching Galaxies
"The Sombrero galaxy was discovered way back in 1781, but with your telescope, we can now study it in more detail!"
"Build the Federal Institute of Astronomy and study the Sombrero galaxy."
You studied the Sombrero galaxy and re-organized the Institute of Applied Astronomy! You get materials as a reward.
Stage 8 - Radio Waves
"Astronomers use radio interferometers to study emissions from faraway stars. This helps to precisely calculate the coordinates and size of celestial objects."
"Build the Radio Interferometer antennae and start laying communication lines for them."
Great, you've almost finished building the Mountain Observatory!
Stage 9 - Stellar Cartography
"The Stellar Cartography Service catalogs stars, gives them names and creates maps."
"Build the Stellar Cartography Service, find out the exact size of the star Deneb and open the Dark Energy Museum in Megapolis."
Build the Stellar Cartography Service
15 x Aluminum Profile
15 x Bracket
15 x Concrete Blocks
10 x Engineering Software
15 x Glass
15 x Insulation
10 x Rebar
Gives: 1,500 and 29,100 cap increase upon completion, then 3,200 and 100 every 12 hours and access to Cataloging the Stars of the Milky Way contract at the Institute of Applied Astronomy
Complete the Establishing the Size of Deneb contract
Requires: Mountain Observatory: Radio Interferometer
Costs: 15,500 and 8 hours
Gives: 67,400 and 640 upon completion
Buy the Dark Energy Museum
Costs: 1,040,000 or 3
Gives: 1,300 and 16,400 cap increase, then 1,400 and 50 every 9 hours
One final push! All the infrastructure for the Observatory has been built and your free gift of materials is already waiting for you in the Storehouse.
Stage 10 - Survey Telescope
"The Survey Telescope has a camera with a 3.2 gigapixel resolution, so very precise pictures can be obtained from a large part of the sky."
"Build the Survey Telescope and start to catalog the stars of the Milky Way."
Good job. You finished building the Mountain Observatory and you get a great reward – the Scientific Astronomy Center. Tell your friends!
For completing Stage 10
Achievement after building the Scientific Astronomy Center
"You built the Scientific Astronomy Center and earned the title of
Star Seeker. Tell your friends!"
