OK, There seems to be a lot of confusion for some people on how you build a Titan.

It can be a little confusing at first because we all are stuck in the old way of building a Capitalship.  First off in the research tree under the Miltary Research Tree you will find Experimental Designs.

At the bottom of the screen you will notice a set of four icons all looking the same way. They are named Ankylon Stage I through IV.

The Titan is built in Four Stages. It was done this way so that once you start a stage it will alert the other players what you are trying to accomplish.  Each stage researched will build your Titan up to 25 percent per stage. with the final stage researched completing your Titan. Also, 2 Capital ship slots are rquired and 150 supply are reguired to build the Titan.

Some people are confused and think that only the first state is required to fully build a Titan.  This is not correct and all four stages must be completed in order to build a Titan.

If anyone has a screen shot please post it up or ill add them later when I get home.

I hope this helps and that Stardock Stickies this to help anyone that might be confused about building their Titans.

I completed all the research but how do I launch my Titan? If it comes out automatically where is it?

 

This game really needs a manual :/

Quoting Sinperium,
There is a manual.

 

Thanks for elaborating on where it can be found.

 

And no one answered my question, where does the Titan come out? Do I need to research all the Fleet Logistics stuff before I can get it? I have all the Eradica Prototype research completed.

You should add that the location of each titan build stage will be different for each race/faction, but it will all be under the military tech tree.

 

You also need the Titan Foundry. You will likely need to upgrade your Tactical Slots once or twice to build it, and it will set you back around 5000 credits, a thousand crystal, and a thousand metal.

 

Ive checked with every race, the total cost to build the titan and foundry, including research ,is 14,300 credits, 2000 metal, and 1500 crystal.

 

I recommend you save that amount up after getting the required amount of research facilities(4).

 

Build the foundry, and queue up all four stages of the research, then began building.

When you research the first Titan stage, a new tactical structure "Titan Foundry" becomes available. That is the factory for building the Titan.

THANKS! The manual should help greatly. I didn't realize the Titan Foundry was in the tactical structures, I thought it would be grouped with the Frigate Factory and Capital Ship Factory.

IMO, the stage thing is kind of redundant. Who would ever start building a titan during stage one?


First off, the first stage comes too early, yes, it's cheap, but in the early game you need to maximize your research time, and making useless titan research early won't win you any early engagement or set yourself up for an economic boom.

Second, you don't have the money to do it that early. Titans come later on, even if you destroy planets as VL you will never want to focus on early titan research as you need to rush the empire line first for obvious reasons.

Do you have Adobe Reader?  If not, what the hell are you doing trying to open a .PDF file?

Yeah, it is strange it's a tactical and not a logistical structure. Perhaps a balance reason? Or they just didn't have room in the logistical structure selection window for it

Yes I have adobe reader but the PDF brings my computer to it's knees for some reason and I always enjoy reading the descriptions. It's funny because I can play huge maps with 300 stars with 20 planets each easy late game but a PDF hates me:P

That is the most likely answer.

That's because Adobe Reader is 32-bit.
