Structure

BASE.DAT: Each entry is 296 Bytes long.

Name

00-0E: Base Name, pretty obvious.

0F: Null character if the Base Name uses all 15 characters. If this byte is non-0, the base name will happily overflow and read from the item quantities.

Stores

10-D3: Quantity of each item available at that base (signed 2-byte little-endian integers; see explanation in UFO section for details).

Base Detection Values

D4: Short range detection value (%).

D6: Long range detection value (%).

D8: Transmission Resolver detection value (%).

Each base detection value byte is a low byte, followed by a high byte which is null (x0).

Detection values are identical to XCom1:

Possible decimal values are 0/10/20/30 for Short, 0/20 for Long, 0/100 for Transmission Resolver. The XCom1 Radar Stacking Bug still applies - there is no detection advantage to building multiple detection modules of the same type.

Facilities

DA-FD: The next offsets are arranged so they're easier to understand. They are for facilities in the base:

DA DB DC DD DE DF
E0 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5
E6 E7 E8 E9 EA EB
EC ED EE EF F0 F1
F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F8 F9 FA FB FC FD

The possible values are as follows:

00 - Air Lock
01 - Living Quarters
02 - Laboratory
03 - Workshop
04 - Standard Sonar
05 - Wide Array Sonar
06 - Torpedo Defences
07 - General Stores
08 - Alien Containment
09 - Gauss Defences
0A - Sonic Defences
0B - P.W.T. Defences
0C - Bomb Shield
0D - M.C. Defences
0E - M.C.-Lab
0F - Transmission Resolver
10 - Sub Pen (Top Left)
11 - Sub Pen (Top Right)
12 - Sub Pen (Bottom Left)
13 - Sub Pen (Bottom Right)
FF - Empty

FE-121: The next offsets represent the days until a facility is completed. They're set up the same way:

FE FF 100 101 102 103
104 105 106 107 108 109
10A 10B 10C 10D 10E 10F
110 111 112 113 114 115
116 117 118 119 11A 11B
11C 11D 11E 11F 120 121

Possible values are 00 to FF. Empty spaces must have a FF value in their corresponding offset.

Personnel

0122: Number of technicians (00-FF).

0123: Number of scientists (00-FF).

Other

0124: Disabled flag, if 1 the base is disabled, if 0 the base is in use.
0125-0127: Unknown.
