Base Plots

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

Overview

Base Plots define the amount of area a supergroup has to place various Base Rooms. All Base Plots are required to have an Entry Room which members or guests can enter by using the various Base Portals located in the zones of City of Heroes or City of Villains.

By adding Base Rooms to Base Plots, a group can define the layout of their base. All Groups start with a Tiny Hidden Spot and can upgrade freely to a larger plot. Larger Base Plots provide more area for a Group to place Base Rooms. Larger Base Plots can also have the ability to hold a greater number of Base Items of a specific type. There is no downside to having a larger plot.

At this time there are two categories of Base Plots available to players. There are 10 Hidden Base Plots available, and there are seven Secure Base Plots available.

Limits By Plot

The limiting factor on the number of Base Items for most Base Plots is determined by the total values found from Base Rooms. For example, a Base Plot may indicate that it can contain an unlimited number of Teleport Base Items, but the largest Teleportation Room only allows eight Teleport Base Items although additional Teleportation Rooms can be added to a Base to allow for more to be built. Some item types have additional limitations on the number of items allowed based on plot type or size as shown in the tables below.

These item types are either the same for all bases or only differ based on whether the plot is Hidden or Secure:

Item Type Hidden Secure
Control 1 2
Decorative 20,000 20,000
Dimensional Anchor 6 6
Energy 1 2
Enhancement 6 6
Items of Power 1 Unlimited
Start Up 1 1
Storage 18 18
Workshop 6 6

The maximum number of Batteries depends on both the plot size and type:

Base Plot Type Batteries
Any Hidden plot 1
Small Secure Location 3
Secure Location 3
Large Secure Location 4
Small Secure Complex 4
Secure Complex 5
Large Secure Complex 5
Massive Secure Complex 6
