How can I access the update and the ORBIT DLC? I cannot find it anywhere.

Please make sure that your game is up to date. The update is available with all versions (since 1.7). If you have an active internet connection and Uplay or Steam are not in offline mode, Anno 2205 will update automatically the next time you start the game. This way the new version update will be downloaded as well. The ORBIT DLC will be downloaded for season pass owners automatically. Of course the DLC is availiable for anyone else, too.

Most questions were about the ORBIT DLC

How can I access new ornaments?

Through special summer events in which any player can take part from 22 July to 14 August. The only condition is that wine is unlocked as a resource.

Can I have all the research active at the same time? If not, why not?

No, neither the maximum amount of expertise nor the maximum number of orbital workshops can be generated for this.
The aim of Technology Nexus is to enable the player to select a maximum of two areas of specialisation, so players should experiment to find precisely the right combination for the company.

Do the technologies I have developed remain effective if I reconfigure my station and develop new technologies?

All Technologies require a certain amount of running workshops. Once the player destroys those workshops in order to restructure his station, all connected technologies will be deactivated as well.

Why are my trading floor buildings no longer at +20 since the update?

The game currently contains a bug which causes the influence radius of the trading floor to be reduced. We will fix this issue in the next update.

How do I calibrate the temperature in Orbit?

Workshops and orbit modules generate heat which is distributed via the connecting pipes. The greater the distance away from the heat generators, the more heat will be circulated. The temperature in the individual workshops can be regulated using the grid settings and cooling modules.

Why do modules only supply workshops they are directly connected to?

We decided that workshops would only be supplied by modules in the event of an unimpeded connection between the two to increase complexity when building in Orbit. If the supply were to be consistent, the positioning of individual modules would be less crucial. In addition, this rule also ensures that free spaces are created when building the station. The layout of the free spaces makes the station more distinctive and enhances the overall visual impression.

How does Geo-Engineering work?

The Geo-Engineering is a possibility to change active sector traits. The associated menu can be found by hitting the button next to the minimap icon. Using the Geo-Engineering will cost a certain amount of rare materials and credits. The assignation of new sector traits is random.

How do I start the "Lily Sculpture Quest"? It doesn't automatically appear in my game.

Look out for a transport ship owned by Nick Papadakis near to your cities at places where only the Orbital Watch submarines are lurking.

How do I acquire physicists, botanists and engineers in Orbit? There are no more of them around.

Astronauts are trained at the Biology, Physics and Engineering Institutes in the relevant regions. The more employees who live in the influence radius of the relevant institute, the greater the efficiency of the building, and the more astronauts will be sent to Orbit on the shuttle. Several training centres in a sector therefore increase the number of astronauts who can receive training.
