Civilization Abilities

Civilization Abilities are a set of two characteristics that grant the Civilization a powerful bonus or ability and provide some extra flavour to their gameplay style. Alongside Civilization Traits, Citizens and Cultural Focus, Civilization Abilities serve to differentiate the different in-game factions from one another. Civilization Abilities have a wide range of bonuses to grant: from useful starting resources and various modifiers to resource generation, through making unique technologies available for research, to special powers unique to that Ability that can be activated by the player to influence the game at a critical moment. Core Civilizations have their Abilities pre-set, although they can be changed in the Customize your Civilization screen before the game starts, which allows each Civilization to be played in a wide variety of ways. Players can select two Abilities for Custom Civilizations made with the AlienGPT system too.
