The Mining Base
A large and expensive mining base. This base provides a 50% bonus to colony mineral production. There is no limit to the number of these that can be built, but only one base per colonized system will provide the bonus. Each station costs 2 Unity and 1 influence to maintain each month. Once you have the research completed, you will need to design the station in the ship designer and then build it with a construction ship. You’ll find it in the Military Stations build menu.
(These are the stats of the station before any bonuses, utilities, or weapons are added).
- Mineral Cost: 2000
- Fleet Capacity: 8
- Hull Points: 8000
- Armor: 50
Mining Base Bonuses:
- Bases must be built in a colonized system to receive the bonus, and the bonus only affects colonies, not mining stations.
- Mineral Production: 50% bonus to the mineral production of all colonies in the system it is placed in. Only one base per system is effective.
- Mineral Storage: The first 10 stations each provide a storage capacity increase of 5,000 minerals, up to a total of 50,000.
