Base Locations (Apocalypse)
The number of bases and their characteristics varies according to the difficulty level. You can read information about all the possible base sites below.
Warehouse Four is the best building available because of cost, space, base defense and hit resistance, with Warehouse Seven as a second choice.
Warehouses Two and Six are the best buys for their cost, space, base defense and hit resistance. Slum space is expensive for its price.
|Oliver Twist Block||$70,000||24||South||$2,917|
Hades Block is an ideal choice for a second base, as it has the most space, the second-lowest price tag, and while located in a slum, tends to be close to dimension gates and UFO spawning. 35 units of available space mean all the advanced labs you could want to build.
Warehouse Six is the best available real estate for defense and hit resistance, if you can spare the money for its price tag.
The Campesino Apartments might be interesting if you don't mind the possibility of a unlucky stray shot hitting the wrong spot of the building and killing all personnel.
Warehouse Three is the cheapest and has good space for several large facilities, but has the least space for expansion, limiting the scope of functions that this base can contain at any given time.
Warehouse Eight is a very interesting option because of its defense chokepoints. Warehouse Six has the biggest area and the smallest price but will require more Security Stations to protect it from raids.
|Thomas More Tower||$80,000||32||Center||$2,500|
When starting a new Superhuman campaign, Warehouse Two is one of the most common of the possible starting points.
Warehouses Eight and Ten are the best options. Thomas More Tower should be avoided at all costs, as it is structurally unsound (a single hit to its own foundations, or even the foundations of the adjacent George Orwell Block, will cause the entire building to collapse).
Warehouses Ten and Eleven are adjacent to one another.
Though probably not the most perfect layout due to the Access Lift placement, the Lovecraft Block is one of the very few possible starting bases, if not the only one in the game, where your personell will never die if the base gets attacked or hit by a stray shot from a craft, causing all building parts to collapse. Along with featuring 4 aircraft tubes for fast dispatching, all personell is housed in the southern tube, which is an indestructible building part. It makes for one of the safest bases to use as your main base on the Superhuman difficulty. If enough time and money is spent on re-arranging the facility placements to better counter Base Defense missions it can become the ultimate base.
