The title says it all. I connected a world to three separate foundations, setting each route to biotech (7) to maximize population. However, the world was upifted to the maximum TL without using the extra tech levels! I reduplicated this on three different worlds, each importing from three foundations of varying TLs (from 7 through 10), and each world got 100% free technology. I only tried this when attempting to uplift to TL 7.

While it does not allow for control of TLs, it is awesome for sending shipyards up the tech tree at the speed of light! (Yes, not only did I get free tech, each world jumped up 5+ TLs in only around 2-3 dozen watches.)

I went ahead and added this to Ministry.

Hmmm... :? After disconnecting all but one of the foundations (I already reset the trade route), one world still refuses to dip below TL 8. I very badly want it to go back down to TL 7, and it had a natural of TL of 5 or 6 (I forgot which one, hehe :oops: ), but I guess I'll have make do. Eventually I'll probably disconnect it altogether, just to see what (if anything) it drops to.
