Supergroup Base

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

Overview

Gameinfo bases.jpg

Supergroup Bases allow for a supergroup to congregate, pool resources, travel more easily, and more. Bases and all base facilities are free to construct. Bases were introduced with the release of City of Villains, and were initially restricted to those who had purchased the expansion. Individuals who did not own CoV received a message stating that a City of Villains purchase was required to enter when they tried to enter a base. Base access was expanded to all players on July 16, 2008, when City of Heroes and City of Villains were merged into a single game.

Registering a Base

Before building a supergroup base, you must first register the base. Registering a base does not cost anything. This is done by speaking to the Super Group Registrar. Once the base has been registered, a supergroup may then begin construction.

Using the Base Editor

Main Article: Base Editing

If you have base editing Privileges, you are given three options:

  • Upgrade Plot which allows you to change your plot size-and-type, or to simply move where your entrance room is.
  • Edit Base which allows you to do most of what you would expect: create, move and delete rooms; change Ceiling, Wall, and Floor patterns and colors; and add, move, and delete most rooms.

Currently, everyone (whether they have base editing privileges or not) is also given the option

  • Add Personal Item which allows you to add an item that you have crafted from salvage, or have earned via Veteran Rewards to the base.

This option does not allow you to move an item once placed, but does permit you to place an item.


Making a Functional Base

Plot

Main Article: Base Plots

Your plot determines how big your base can get, and how many items it may have in those rooms. Larger plot sizes allow more, and larger, rooms. Secure plots allow more functional items in particular categories than Hidden plots.

Player Base Spotlight

Paragon Studios would occasionally spotlight supergroup bases that exhibited exceptional designs. Players were taken on a guided photo tour of these bases as posted on the Official Forums. The following bases were included in this community feature:
