Bases

A Legion Base is a shared structure for the entire Legion. A legion will work over time to upgrade it, unlocking new modules and increasing its potential.

Base Construction and Upgrades

A base can be constructed by any legion by clicking on the ‘Legion Base’ button in the legion area. (Cost: 100 Energy)

Members will need the ‘Advanced Logistics’ research to build any modules on the base or contribute to its upgrade. As the base continues to upgrade, members will need even more advanced levels of Logistics research.

Further Base upgrades can be achieved by clicking on the ‘Upgrade’ tab once the base has finished construction. Each base level requires a certain amount of resources and research level, as outlined in the following table.

To Base Level XP/E Ratio Energy EM CTP Research
1 2.0 1,000 0 0 Advanced Logistics Lv.1

  • Note that once a base reaches level 2, the base can not be abandoned without contacting the game development team.

Base Images

There are 30 different images to choose from for your base. Some images are not available until the base has been upgraded a few times; level 5 bases have all base images unlocked. There are multiple sources that give additional bases schematics.These are the Sha'din Hyperport, which drops an item, the Corruption Market has an item that changes the schematics, and the Legion Mission task Recover Base Technology awards an item that changes the schematics

Base Resource Production

Similarly to planets, bases can produce Resource Points (mining, research, artifacts). Modules must be constructed to allow for the production of certain Resource Points. All bases start with the same level of production. Early base levels do not produce much, but larger bases will start to produce amounts that exceed very good planets. Bases are unlike planets in that the displayed production goes directly from "Ultra Rich" to "1x Mega Rich" without the plain "Mega Rich" that you find on planets. Any base output at or above "1x Mega Rich" will therefore be 25% lower than the equivalent named planetary availability.

Base Resource Point shipments can be divided either equally between all eligible members, or by the percentage base upgrade contribution from each eligible member. Legion members are eligible for shipments if they were active in the last day and have been with the legion for at least 24 hours. Base shipments are delivered either once per day, or can be manually claimed. Base shipments will be made to members even if they have already reached their planet resource capacity.

To find the total production of any Resource Points of a base, use this formula:

Total Base Production=(Production Module Output)*(1+(Base Level Bonus)/100%)*(1+(Base Defender Bonus)/100%)*(1+(Base Loyalty Bonus)/100%)*(1+(Availability Bonus)/100%)*(1+(Base Ability Bonus)/100%)

-OR-

You can use This .xls Microsoft Office spreadsheet based calculator made by THEBIGPOTPLANT. This simple tool allows you to "on the fly" change values to your base to see the long term effects without waiting 20 hours. :-) Free software comparable to "Microsoft Office" can be Found Here.

Some Features Include:
-Total Base Production for all resources.
-Total resources received from your shipment.
-Amount of credits you should deposit to the base for your share of the upkeep.
-Amount of credits you pay with base upkeep per resource point.
-ALSO factors in the amount of players NOT claiming shipments.
-Option for percentage based resource dividend results.


Production Module Output

Special Base Production modules can be built to allow the base to produce Artifact Points, Mining Points, and Research Points. Only 4 modules associated with each resource type can be built at a time. As the base level increases, more advanced production modules can be built. See the Special Base Modules section for more details about these modules.

Base Level Bonus

The base receives a 500% production bonus for each base level 2+. A level 3 base receives a 1000% production bonus, a level 4 receives 1500%, and so on.

Base Level Production Bonus Multiplier
1 1x
2 5x
3 10x
4 15x
5 20x
6 25x
7 30x
8 35x
9 40x
10 45x

Base Defender Bonus

The base receives a 10% production bonus for each day since the base was last disabled, up to 100%.

Base Loyalty Bonus

The base receives a 40% production bonus for each active loyal legion member that has been with the legion continuously for a week or longer. The cap on the number of members in a legion is currently 60.

If a legion member leaves and returns, they are considered a new member, regardless of how long they were with the legion before. Loyalty affects many parts of the base, including its production bonuses, and whether certain modules can be used, such as the CT Lab.

Note that while the total production of the base increases with each additional member, each member receives a lower percentage payout of that total.

Availability Bonus

Leaders can increase the availability of certain resources by spending 'Production Points'. 5 Production Points are awarded each time the base gains a new level. A Legion may choose to focus all of their points on a single resource, but note that the cost to increase availability rises as more points are spent.

Point Increase Progression:

Base Modules

Bases hold 2 different types of modules. Special modules occupy their own "special" space on the base and allow for production of resources and unlocking of base abilities. All other modules use up the the standard space, which is separate. This allows defensive modules to be constructed that do not conflict with the space used for special purposes.

Unlike ship modules, base modules cannot be "uninstalled", as there is no cargo storage, thus a base module can only be sold to free up necessary space. When a module is sold, the balance is added to the base funds.

All modules have a daily upkeep cost. If there are not enough base funds to pay the upkeep, all modules on the base will provide no bonuses until the funds are brought back to positive. Any Legion member may add more base funds by clicking on the ‘Add Credits’ in the actions tab.

Collective Theory Lab (Advanced Module)

base-theory.png

After the legion has finished researching Hybrid Theory Dynamics, they will be allowed to construct the Collective Theory Lab (CT-Lab for short) on their base.

As with other special structures, the CT-Lab will unlock a new option in the 'Actions' tab when installed. Only members who have also finished researching Hybrid Theory Dynamics can use the Lab. Members must also be 'Loyal' to use the CT-Lab.

The CT-Lab allows the legion to research new 'discoveries'. A discovery allows lab-users to combine common artifacts into newer, more powerful artifacts. Unlike normal research, discoveries are completely random and are intended to be a way for members to constantly spend research points after they have completed most of the tiers.
