In Kings & Conquerors, the Civic Centre takes the place of the vanilla Library and handles fundamental groundbreaking research, which then feeds into new technologies, buildings and of course new units. Generally, each new game begins with a Civic Centre already set up, so all that is required is to obtain resources required to buy the research it has to offer.

There are five paths of research in the Civic Centre: Science Science, Commerce Commerce, Administration Civic, and Military Military, as well as three trunk technologies. Each one of them is a prerequisite for further research, which in turn might contribute towards bettering your units and even the stylistic appearance of your faction's buildings!

Trunk technologiesEdit

"[T]hey pass away in the rustling blast, and other leaves lift their green heads on high." —James Scott MacPhearson, Ossian

Trunk technologies allow your faction to grow and mature as a civilisation, and are required to access Reforms and Research which enhance your faction vis-à-vis others. They replace the former Age or Epoch techs of other games.

Scientific researchEdit

If you search for the laws of harmony, you will find knowledge. —Egyptian saying

Science research increases line of sight for many of your units (including buildings), makes new Resource technologies available so you can increase gather rate, permits construction of new types of buildings, and decreases the cost of all other technology research incrementally.

Commerce researchEdit

...where the houses overflow with the greatest troves of treasure... —The Iliad Commerce research will cost you Timber and Knowledge at the Library. When you complete Commerce research, your Commerce Cap goes up for all Resources you gather: Food, Timber, Metal, and Wealth. You can gather more of them only up to the Commerce Cap; surpass the cap and any excess is simply lost to you. Commerce research along with Civics research is also required to gain access to a variety of military units as well.

Administration researchEdit

To bring about the rule of righteousness in the land, so that the strong should not harm the weak.
—Hammurabi's Code; Prologue

Administration research allows you to build one new city with each completed round, and increases your national borders. If your borders abut other nations' borders, then you'll gain strength in the pushing match. As long as you don't touch other factions' territories yet, the diameter of area covered by your borders centred around your Cities simply expands with each level attained.
