Atomic replicators and conventional tools for replicating various materials and equipment.
A small Workshop can accomodate five engineers at one time.
Workshops can produce various items, but basic items like Megapol grenades and ammunition are by city regulations available only from official manufacturers.
You will need to research alien weapons before you can produce them or other alien technology in workshops.
Your starting small workshop is adequate for much of the early-mid game, and will spend most of its time producing Toxigun ammo while upgrades are acquired directly from the aliens. An additional workshop or two may be used to assist. Any extra engineers should use Advanced Workshops, as many and as soon as possible, to begin building hybrid craft and ship upgrades. There is no upper limit to the number of engineers you should recruit, although 30 is more than sufficient to ensure dominion over the aliens.
