Reactions are used to create the intermediate materials that are used in the production of Tech II and Tech III items, as well as combat boosters, through the use of a Reaction Formula.
Reaction Formulas work similar to blueprints, but can not be researched, copied or invented.
Reactions are only available in Refineries that have a reactor fitted and online, and reactors can only be installed on Refineries that are located in systems with a security rating of 0.4 or lower. The following reactors are available:
- Standup Biochemical Reactor: Creates the chemicals used for the production Combat Boosters
- Standup Composite Reactor: Reacts moon materials to create the intermediate materials for Tech II production
- Standup Hybrid Reactor: converts Fullerite gases into the advanced materials required to produce of Tech III Subsystems and ships
