I'm afraid I have to burden you with another question, but it was something that made me wonder. At the official forums (which are a mess to be honest, at least, the English section is), I read a post that claimed that you couldn't build extra bases. Or, to be precise, you could build new bases, but they would be very limited (only hangars and defence systems). Surely, this statement is false?
I think that may be true actually. I was also wondering about this when I started playing - the manual makes it sound like your additional bases would be the same as the main base, but so far for me the available build options for my auxiliary bases have been hangars, energy, defenses and detection systems. I don't know how this works with base defense, since the manual says that any of your bases can be attacked. Another possibility is that I simply haven't accumulated enough personnel to expand the other bases beyond hangars yet. I'm honestly not sure - perhaps the developers can shed some light on this?
Right now, I'm using my main base to house my labs, workshops, living quarters and hangar for the transport craft. I have four additional bases with 3, 2, 2 and 1 hangar to hold more fighters and detection systems to expand my global reach, but the team itself seems to be stationed at the main original base. I don't know what happens if you lose that base either (yet), whether you'd be able to "move" to one of the others, etc. I think asking the developers for more info on this rather than me would be the best way to find out as I'm still getting up to speed.
