In the Hologrid, you can organize the different species habitats of Alpha.
Some species require another specie from a specific type (like Culture, Technology, etc.) to unlock their resource production capabilities. In some cases, they even need to be in proximity to a specific alien species!
You can also unlock new resources by having a cluster of several tiles from the same species next to each other.
As your Hologrid expands, so will your resource needs - get ready for some really interesting and complex management puzzle!
