Skills allow players to advance in technology, speed and efficiency in ECO. Skills are gained by spending skill points or using skill scrolls.

The number of skill points a player has is displayed in the bottom left of the screen. Clicking on the number will bring up the skills menu.

Skill points are gained at a steady rate based on the food a player has ingested. More nutritious food, as well as nutrient balance determines skill point gain rate. See Food for more info.

In the skills menu, skills are divided into categories or skill trees. Three of the skill trees — Survival, Civics, and Research — are unlocked from the beginning of the game. The other skill trees require skill scrolls to unlock.

Some skills within skill trees also require skill scrolls. The skill tree for that skill must be unlocked first for the skill to be available.

Skill Trees (Alpha 5.5)[edit | edit source]

NOTE: Skills with an "s" will only be unlocked after reading a Skill Scroll from the appropriate Skill Book.
