The new Subnautica website has been launched! Some things are broken, including blog post comments and links in the forum navigation bar (They go to NS2 right now). We will be fixing things over the next few days!
Changing the Kharaa upgrade method

To be distinct from the marine method, and more interestingBasically:
Kharaa get their upgrade levels passively as more chambers of a type is built, instead of having to actively research them.
So instead of the commander researching armour level 1-3 on a Crag as the number of hives increase, much like how the marine commander researches it at the armoury (identical sides? boring!), the level of armour increases by just building more Crags.
Also, probably a good idea to change it from the +10% or so at each level, maximum of 3 levels, to some smaller value but with more levels. So, you get armour 1-9 (strength adjusted down to compensate) by having 1-9 Crags. Not sure if the levels should be limited by the number of hives.
A bit like how in NS1 you need 3 chambers to get the full use out of personal upgrades, but without copying that system entirely.
