Upgraded Motivator is a technology that can be researched at the Command Center in Tech Level 2. It costs 175 Food and 50 Carbon, and lets Workers and Utility Trawlers move 10% faster and carry 25% more. It must be researched before Optimized Motivator becomes available.

This technology will improve the gathering rate of resources, since Workers will spend less of their time delivering resources to the Command Center or other drop-off points.

"This useful Tech Level 2 enhancement makes your workers move faster and increases their resource-carrying capacity."
