The Empire Plan is the interface which allows you to set major strategic medium-term directions for your empire. The plan is divided into four categories that correspond to the four categories of research disks (Military, Science and Industry, Empire and Expansion, and Economy and Population). Each category has a number of ranks of increasing effect or power. By sliding the apexes of each category you set the investment level in terms of Influence. The total amount of Influence spent in all categories cannot exceed your current stock. As you unlock new research Eras, additional Empire Plan ranks become available, allowing you to design more powerful plans (that are of course more expensive in Influence). You can choose to balance your investment between the four categories or raise a chosen category to the maximum in order to drive your empire in one direction.
Each Tier is unlocked upon reaching their respective research era (tier 1 is unlocked in Era I, tier 2 is unlocked in Era II, etc...). The Drakkens have Empire Plan tiers unlocked 1 era earlier due to their Advanced Diarchy Faction Trait.

Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Broken Lords faction should consider spending spare Influence to pay for the tier 4 Economy and Population Empire plan for a huge percentage bonus to Dust production.
- The Vaulters faction should consider spending spare as well as their main Influence to pay for the Science and Industry Empire plan for huge bonuses to their overall Science production.
- Anyone hoping for a Supremacy, Elimination or Conquest victory should try and spend most of their influence to pay for the Military Empire plan when you think of attacking as it will provide huge bonuses to your army, though that particular Empire plan is not advised as a long term investment, only for large attacks, as it could waste valuable Influence that could be used to increase the FDIS of your empire.
