Your Tech Advisor will give you a new technology Module once each day. Play the game every day and collect more Modules to begin Research on some of the more advanced Technologies. You can also exchange Modules with your Friends, with a maximum of 2 per day.The more often you and your Friends play the game, the more Modules you can exchange.
You can also exchange Modules at the Trade Gateway. IMPORTANT: Your Researchers will NOT always discover the Module you need for the Technology you want. You may have to Trade for Modules you're missing with other players in order to progress through the game faster. Modules can only be Traded for other Modules; they cannot be traded for Resources or Credits.
