Accelerate Tiberium growth
|“|| Ichor concentration in this area is extremely low and contained. Construct Growth Accelerators at each Ichor field, to increase its spread.|
- Alien AI give a mission briefing to Foreman 371
The Growth Accelerator is a structure utilized by the alien Scrin to improve the growth speed of a Tiberium field by 50%. These structures have been observed to be placed atop of Tiberium fissures (or the middle of a tiberium field) in the fields that are being harvested by the Scrin. These could be the aliens version of an irrigation system, designed to artificially accelerate and nurture the growth of their prized Ichor. To be able to build Growth Accelerators, the Foreman must have an Extractor present. The Accelerator could be placed at ANY tiberium fissure, even if the fissure is well away from the foreman's ground control.
Foreman 371 during the mission on London had deployed several Growth Accelerators on three Tiberium Fields.
