Home Improvements are the game's meta-progression upgrades.

General Description[edit | edit source]

Home Improvements are purchased from the Ant Builders using Cornucopias. The cost of each upgrade starts at 3 Cornucopias and increases linearly at a rate of 1 up to a maximum of 20. Once the cost reaches 20, the ant will no longer offer additional upgrades. However, despite this no upgrades can be missed. This means that players will be able to purchase all 16 or 17 upgrades listed by the Ants and not have to pick and choose. Some upgrades are unique and others are repeatable. Repeatable upgrades are denoted by an asterisk *.

Shared Improvements[edit | edit source]

There are certain improvements which all ants may offer to the player. These improvements will be offered multiple times, allowing the player to increase their effect. All of these upgrades stack additively, not multiplicatively.
