"Build and upgrade the plant to produce equipment for atmospheric probes."

The Research Equipment Plant is an expedition factory located west of Seaside. It was originally introduced on February 09, 2017 as part of the timed quest called Exploring the Earth.[1]

A total of 20 assets and additional 165,000 Coin sm worth diagrams are needed to complete construction of Research Equipment Plant. This is equivalent to 20 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
