Function Parts, or FPs, are the elements from which Tech Objects, or TOs, are built. They are added and changed through the Tech Editor. FPs can be created by the player or selected from a menu of prebuilt FPs loaded with the game.
New Function Parts are unlocked when the player's race completes the research of certain technologies. These technologies are researched via the Research Tree.
