Which event is necessary for Fungal Food Production?

I have now started a new campaign thanks to the changes (cthulhu) in skills that have finally started in the right direction.

Now I have researched everything from “my” research tree and I am wondering which event is necessary for “Fungal Food Production” ?

Patch Notes:
Food Production facility now requires the “Fungal Food Production” research in order to unlock it.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Same question

Fungal Food Production, is a Discisples of Anu tech, so to get access to the Food production facility you need to steal their tech or ally with then.

Probably changed to stop the the meta of building many food facilitys and trading with all the havens for resources early on the game.

I will play tomorrow again, right now Reputation with Disciples of Anu 49% and diplomatic mission was activated, so I think Allied is the answer, that attitude will unlock several techs including Fungal Food production

Ouch, that’s a big problem, as food is the only resource that is getting drained by default. The questions is: do other factions provide rooms that would provide other resources for trade? Naturally, I need to get a feel for the new balance, but it seems to me, like allying with Anu with be the default path for moi for every playthrough. Stealing tech is far too unreliable.

resources aren’t so much scarce, so you don’t need food production

True that. First few plays I did without any food production. You’ll end up having thousands anyways. It’s not that good of an investment given the upfront cost and the ROI.

You need Aligned status with Disciples in order to get Fungal Food Production,

REP 50+ with Disciples is easy

Ok thats new. In my playthrough 5 months ago it was not that way…

Yes it was. Like I said, my first few campaigns went through without building food production facilities. They are overrated - well, I suppose it depends on how you play. How much coverage you have on the map to be able to respond to haven attacks and generate resources that way.
