The spaceship is a game concept in Civilization V.
Players must complete the Apollo Program project before they can start building their spaceship. They also have to research several end-game technologies to unlock each part.
A spaceship consists of six parts that must all be built in cities and then transported to the Capital for assembly and launch. Note that during the transportation phase the parts are vulnerable to enemy attacks! They can be destroyed by any hostile military unit walking in their tile, so they should be protected well! These are the specific parts:
|Part Name||Prerequisite Technology||Required Quantity||Required Resource||Production Cost|
|SS Booster||Advanced ballistics||3||Aluminum||1500|
|SS Engine||Particle physics||1||Aluminum||1500|
|SS Stasis Chamber||Nanotechnology||1||Aluminum||1500|
The Hubble Space Telescope and the Spaceship Factory help building the parts greatly by boosting city Production for spaceship parts. In addition, players who choose the Freedom ideology can adopt Space Procurements to buy parts with Gold, while those who choose the Order ideology can adopt Spaceflight Pioneers to build parts with Great Engineers.
