Purity, a bioconservative ethos; Harmony, which advocates symbiosis; and Supremacy, a transhumanist ideology.
In theory, you may be able to find one of the two pieces of The Signal within the first turns if you stumble on one piece in a Progenitor ruin soon after you start. Transcendence Edit This victory is achieved with the Harmony affinity, and consists of linking all the minds of the planet into a single consciousness, allowing humanity to transcend into an existence beyond the individual.
The player must build the Mind Flower and protect it until victory is met. By building the Mind Flower, humans begin to connect with and awaken the consciousness of the planet. Defend the Mind Flower until it establishes a Cognitive Link. Support it with Xeno Sanctuary and Mind Stem buildings to speed up the linking process. Here's a full video on this victory: It requires a larger tech research spectrum, though, so you'll need an efficient research, if you are to both develop the Harmony Affinity and research the necessary high-end techs.
Unlike the other two types of Affinity victory, once you establish the Cognitive Link that is, when you complete Mind Floweryou don't need to do anything - just wait. How fast the link is established depends on the presence of special buildings in your cities - the more of these, the faster the linking process.
Again, plan ahead of time. Also, be mindful that during the linking all Alien units turn hostile dark red! Promised Land Edit This victory is achieved with the Purity affinity, and consists in organizing a colonization wave of Earthling survivors.
The player must launch a Lasercom Satellite to establish contact, and build an Exodus Gate wonder back to Earth. The next goal is to summon and settle 20 colonists on the new planet. The player will need to protect them from other factions, as well as find space for them to settle. This, in part, is where the challenge lies because the Colonists arrive late game, when free land is most scarce. This perspective involves the Purists' idea of creating a new Earth, where old Earthlings can migrate and use as their new home or 'Promised Land'.
Summon Colonists from Earth via the Exodus Gate and settle them. To summon Colonists click on the Exodus Gate look at the bottom left where the "Exodus Gate" screen is then click on the icon near the top of the Exodus Gate screen to summon a Colonist Each Colonist can either create a new settlement or settle in an existing Earthling settlement each such settlement can have a maximum of 6 population.
To win you must have 20 total population in all Earthling Settlements. Settlements can be destroyed and cannot be created within 3 tiles of any other city; they can however be created on your territory Note: Colonist can only move one tile per turn two at sea.
This makes it imperative to build a Magrail network to the places where you plan to establish the earthling colonies, or else the settlers will take forever to move! Only one Colonist Unit can be summoned each turn at the Exodus Gate. The new settlements take no extra land and cannot be interacted with as Minor Powers. Units can be garrisoned in the settlements for protection.
How To Win a Purity Victory - Civilization Beyond Earth Like the other Affinity Victories, Promised Land victory depends on a strategical tech development which boosts your Affinity, while at the same time allowing you to research the necessary tech for building the Exodus Gate.
The dome tile improvement, which among other things boosts culture of the tile it is built upon. Its isolated environment can be either used to grow genetically Terran biomes on an otherwise alien planet, or can be used to preserve alien biomes on an increasingly terraformed alien planet, so it ends up being a preservation sanctuary no matter which approach is taken to the native life.
Can become an Underwater Hometown if built on sufficiently deep ocean tiles in Rising Tide.Civilization: Beyond Earth Gameplay #44 (Brasilia, Purity)
Earth That Used to Be Better: How Earth is described in the backstory. While its fate after your departure is left ambiguous and your colony is completely cut off from it, the Purity and Supremacy victories involve your colony re-establishing contact with and opening a gateway to Earth.
Alien units are stronger than your tier 1 units and are, with the exception of the Wolfbeetle, an even match for your tier 2 units. And Siege Worms and Krakens can take on Tier 3 units and win. There are also many alien units across the map and it will be a long time before you can build units in comparable numbers. Miasma blankets the land degrading and killing your units; it will take time to research and build Miasmic Repulsors or start going down the Harmony path where it becomes beneficial.
It's also possible, through no fault of your own, to place your starting city just a little too close to an unseen alien nest, resulting in constant attacks from threatened alien units that keep respawning. If this occurs, it can be impossible to recover from the slow start, even if you manage to survive the constant onslaught.
supremacy, harmony or purity :: Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth General Discussions
The Archimedes Lever wonder, the largest seismic manipulator ever built, capable of causing landscape-changing upheavals at a distance of many kilometers. It is useful both for civic applications exposing veins of useful material and allowing core sampling, boosting production of the city it is built in and military applications burying and disrupting incoming enemy forces, enhancing the defense rating of the city it is built in.
Smaller scale applications of the seismic induction technology are mentioned as being used in farming and mining applications.
If a station is destroyed, it leaves a derelict settlement, which can be searched by an explorer and if survivors are found, they are peacefully integrated into the explorer's civilization.
This can happen even with the civilization that destroyed the station. When you are advancing down an Affinity's tech path, you get access to unit upgrades that are unique to the Affinity line.
Progress far enough in an affinity and you automatically get some of its associated strategic resource for free. The Kavithan Protectorate is named after its leader, Kavitha Thakur. A mid-level Covert Op recruits defectors from another faction, which are randomly selected from units that faction can build.
As colony leaders move further down the Purity affinity, they tend to get more and more lavish outfits, as part of their thematic callback to historical Earth civilizations.
Purity's Promised Land victory in a nutshell. Earth Settlers come out of the gate and you have to settle a total of 20 into Earth settlements, each of which can only hold about six settlers. Make sure you have a sizable military presence in the settlement area before starting, as factions following a different affinity are unlikely to take kindly to this. Word of God suggests that practically everybody looks at the Harmony-Supremacy hybrid affinity with revulsion, including pure Supremacy and pure Harmony colonies, to say nothing of pure Purity.
The indigenous Wolf Beetles so called because they resemble terrestrial beetles but share a similar size and aggressive pack structure as terrestrial wolves breed incredibly quickly, going from seed to adult in about two terrestrial weeks.
The species is bisexual and any pair of them can produce viable offspring. Their breeding cycle often outstrips the size of their nest and their environment's ability to support their population, at which point The Swarm becomes increasingly aggressive and lashes out in a Zerg Rush against other lifeforms until their population is brought back down the manageable. Between this and their ability to match human soldiers in combat, it didn't take long for certain Harmony colonies to take an interest in breeding and training them as expendable shock troops.
Though their factions specialty is espionage like the Data Angels. Vadim Kozlov is pretty much Yuri Gagarin, a fact lampshaded by the game lore itself. In fact, the achievement for winning the game as him is "Gagarin's Legacy". Hutama is in a sense what Nwabudike Morgan would be like had he been a student activist-turned-politician, with a charismatic personality to match. They rely on large numbers of cheap, mass produced units for the bulk of their army. They also engage in chemical warfare via Miasma and many of their units can gain combat bonuses while fighting in it.
They do tend to have the best melee attacks of the three affinities. Their units tend to be tougher than Harmony's but not as strong as Purity's and often gain bonuses when fighting in formation. Their units tend to lack the special abilities of Harmony and Supremacy but make up for it with sheer firepower and heavy armor.
They also have the best ranged attacks of the three affinities.
Hybrid Affinities have powerful health bonuses and generic bonuses rather than special abilities; the reward for going wide instead of deep is having an empire that can sustain a lot more cities and units that are extremely versatile in their function.
Failed a Spot Check: As Intrigue increases in a city, the civ that controls that city will get messages to that effect. If the messages are ignored, then Intrigue continues to increase, leading to increasingly more devastating actions that the Spy can take. Countering rising Intrigue is relatively easy assign one of your own Spies to the citymeaning that getting to Intrigue 5 is only really possible if the player of that civ isn't paying attention.
Alternatively, the player can simply build a certain structure in each city that prevents intrigue levels from rising beyond 2, meaning the enemy spy can only perform low-level activities. How Supremacy and Harmony factions view Purity-aligned ones. As the Purity affinity takes great stock on history, mankind's cultural heritage and the memory of Earth in addition to a focus on retaining their "humanity" on an alien world.
Purity ditches this angle if they hybridize with Supremacy and have a very weird take on it if combined with Harmony. Fantastic Fruits and Vegetables: The planet's biosphere has its own indigenous analogues, some of which are edible by humans and can be cultivated for food. The local tubers, for example, are actually more nutritious than many of the imported tubers from Earth like potatoes. The Pan-Asian Cooperative, one of the terrestrial factions involved in the Seeding, is centered around the old People's Republic of China and stretches from the Mongolian steppe to the megalopolis of Bangkok, possibly also including Korea and Japan.
Chungsu, one of the factions introduced in the Rising Tide DLC, is Korean-based and its civlopedia article mentions that Japan has become an economic dependent of Korea in the wake of the Great Mistake. The American Reclamation Corporation and its leader Suzanne Marjorie Fielding; a corporation with enough economic and industrial power that it is able to colonize other planets and compete with nation-states in that regard.
Han from Chungsu is mentioned as well as coming from a wealthy Korean family. The "Contact" victory requires making first contact with sentient aliens. There are also flavor-text quotes for each level of an affinity gained, providing some philosophical underpinning. The dynamic going on with Supremacy which prefers cybernetics and robotics and Harmony which uses genetic engineering and controlling alien lifeforms. That said, Supremacists have been confirmed to use some genetic engineering, while Harmonist leaders eventually gain mechanical "ports" in their head, showing that it's not a dichotomy.
Rising Tide adds the hybrid affinities which further expand this dynamic. Purity-Harmony uses genetic engineering to unlock the full potential of humanity, creating superhuman shock troops and battlefield commanders whose brains can compete with supercomputers putting them in complete opposition to pure Supremacy, which uses cybernetics instead of bioengineering.
Purity-Supremacy, meanwhile, creates increasingly complex drone soldiers and robots to serve and protect humanity, putting them in conflict with pure Harmony, who use bioengineering.
Supremacy-Harmony, on the other hand, go for both and create strange cybernetic organisms where it's hard to tell where the flesh ends and the machine begins. Fling a Light into the Future: Unlike the Unity however, it's much more expansive, organized and diverse, with various countries and one Mega-Corp sending their own colony ships instead of simply building one.
It also simultaneously takes place on multiple worlds, as evidenced in the Sid Meier's Starships sequel.
Emphasized for the Al Falah faction introduced in Rising Tide. The coalition of Middle Eastern countries that launched the Al Falah Seeding were among the first to leave Earth, even before the development of the cryogenic technologies other expeditions used.
As a result, they were forced to launch a Generation Ship. Unlike every other faction, no one in the Al Falah faction has ever seen Earth. Downplayedwith floatstone deposits. They can be quarried for resources, and Purity is particularly interested in them, with one of their late-game technologies discovering how to perfectly mill it to enable construction of their special Hover Tanks.
Of interesting note is that while many strategic resources require the appropriate technology to be discovered, floatstone does not because it is kind of difficult to miss big chunks of stone hovering over the landscape.

In Rising Tide Harmony and Harmony-Hybrid players have the ability to "leash", essentially capture and recruit, wild alien units. This includes Siege Worms and Kraken. The new Aquilon in Rising Tide, an immense artificial and cybernetic organism that serves as the ultimate unit of the new Supremacy-Harmony hybrid affinity. Besides carrying aircraft, it's also able to bombard targets. In addition to the various affinities, some factions are these to others.
The likes of Vadim Kozlov was welcomed by all Slavics as a hero of the people and thus the ideal candidate for their Seeding mission. The NSA authorities meanwhile viewed Duncan Hughes with a similar backstory to Kozlov as a threat to their established order, treating their Seeding mission as a glorified Reassigned to Antarctica to get Hughes and his supporters out of the picture.
Planets of the "fungus" type an ecology where fungus have taken the place of plants as the dominant non-animal life.
Giant mushrooms for forests, mosses instead of grasslands, etc.
The new planetary marvel for fungal worlds is Wouldn't be the first time, though. The Civilopedia is written in the form of a historical analysis after the events of the game.
Combined with the massive loss of information through both the Great Mistake and leaving the planet, information on Old Earth is sketchy at best. Scientific and cultural information from the 20th and 21st centuries is a mixture of historical record and speculation, and the Civilopedia occasionally gets things completely wrong, such as discussing seismic weaponry in the "apocrypha of St.
Tesla of Serbia ". Clear out too many alien nests or expand too quickly, and the aliens will grow increasingly aggressive. If you anger them too early in the game, it's pretty likely for a lone siege worm to flatten your outposts and take out your entire army without a scratch.
