TECH 3 UEF LAND FACTORY

T3 factories only increase build speed by 10, but the units you get make it all worthwhile. The extra armor makes the factory essentially invincible short of your entire base going up in flames, which is great on small maps, but the upgrade cost is very painful if you plan to do it quickly, so be careful about leaping to T3 too early.

TECH 3 UEF AIR FACTORY

The UEF has no qualms about upgrading air factories to T3 because of its Heavy Gunship advantage – they’re compelling even if you don’t use them to win.

TECH 3 UEF NAVAL FACTORY

The T3 naval factory is more valued for its build time – you won’t need to make a battleship right when you upgrade, but it sure helps to be pumping out those destroyers and cruisers faster.

MASS PUMP 3 – T3 MASS EXTRACTOR

That adjacency bonus number looks good, right? Unfortunately, since factories are size 16, putting it next to a T3 mass extractor is only a 5% bonus. You’re better off making some mass storage and increasing your production. T3 Mass Extractors are a big investment, but the extra armor helps, and they’re an excellent way to smooth out any excess mass you might be taking in.

T3 MASS FABRICATOR

Mass Fabricators belong in only one place: next to your T3 power generators. Never, ever stop building these two units. Remember that you can power 3 Fabricators and a heavy shield on 2 Power Generators and still have some excess energy left over if you use adjacency.

EG-900 FUSION REACTOR – T3 POWER GENERATOR

The UEF T3 power generator has the advantage of being relatively small in physical size, and thus better able to fit under shields and not eat artillery fire. The death explosion means that they shouldn’t always be next to your nuke launchers or artillery pieces, although they help with the cost – you’d rather not have your entire economy go up in smoke.

QUANTUM GATEWAY

A thoroughly unremarkable building except for its low cost – that’s OK, because subcommanders don’t come cheap. Originally intended to also teleport units across the map, this function was later changed to an upgrade for ACU/SCUs.
