Plants construct components that are used to build ships and stations. They're only useful on ships and stations with construction yards. Labs increase your research capacity. They're only useful on stationary ships and stations.

Plant is a Euro word for a factory in English, and used to be used in American English also. As in "an automobile plant". Since this game was made in the 1960's, hence the terminology .

My question would be how many plants of each kind I should have per 1 construction crane thingy to build new ships most efficiently.

Experts?

There are some threads about this, for more info you should search them.

But on short, 1 plant of each for 10 construction yards are enough.

The thread I referred to in my earlier post addresses this question.
