On big maps, we finish with huge quanta farms. It becomes painful and cumbersome to place more everywhere.
What about the possibility to upgrade the generators ?
PHC could also have a final-tier building that takes any potentially wasted resources (Positive income of Metal or Radioactives while you're already at cap) at provides bonus Quanta instead.
Could be a quanta improvement, instead of a building upgrade. For instance, a quanta ability called 'Quantum Efficiency'; Costs like 5000 quanta and in effect, increases quanta generation speed by X% Meaning you will need less generators.
Or a building which boosts Quanta generators close by, much like SupCom with it's production buildings and energy generators.
Or boost individual quanta generators, but that would get monotonous as fast as building more.
Or we can build up on what already exists:
* For PHC: factories improve quanta generation in the region as well as the metal/radioactive
* For Substrate: use harvester on a quata generator (maybe with a max limit to avoid abuse and keep balance).
