I have an idea for a research converter for late game when research is useless.
This building will employ ~100 people in a 2x2 space, and will consume 1k research/min.
It will produce every single resource in the game, aside from starships, research, and antuara. It will produce those resources at a rate of 15/min. It will consume 2k power and will need 20 money/min to keep running.
