Natural Evolution - Expansion
Works best with Natural Evolution Buildings and Natural Evolution Enemies.
Please go to Home Page for details.

Time Evolution Factor reducedby 50% - From 0.000004 to 0.000002 – Gives you a more time.
Destroying Enemy Spawners Factor reduced, only 10% of vanilla. From 0.002 to 0.00002 – You are going to have to kill a lot more enemy nests/spawners to get to new resources.
Pollution Evolution Factor - 1.5x vanilla - From 0.000015 to 0.0000225 – You are penalized for polluting this beautiful alien world! Recycle! - Focus on a green factory or the Evolution rate will get out of control.

RSO users, please note that RSO significantly reduced started biters and expansion seems very slow. More info here:
