Infinite Lagrange Guide: Essential tips to improve your base
As with all strategy games, base is arguably the most important part of Infinite Lagrange, as it essentially determines your strength as well as the capacity a player can operate at. An improved base isn’t easy, however, especially if we’re talking about heading towards the end of the game at lightning speed. With the release of ‘Phase 3’, first-time players can use the tips below to help them catch up with the veterans.
Before delving into the important base leveling tips, it’s important to know exactly how to upgrade it. Here are some important notes in this regard:
- Each upgrade will cost Metal, Crystals, and Deuterium, and all of these can be mined by creating an Operation and mining the specific resource.
- Upgrades can be accelerated by using acceleration points (green), which are a resource that replenishes over time.
- You cannot use accelerators for the base extension.
- To access the base upgrade menu, press Base -> Build.
Take everything slowly and steadily to understand your needs
It is important to move quickly, but not by spending all the resources and being left with nothing. Your best bet would be to upgrade all the features needed to expand your base and then upgrade the base directly. There is no point in leveling everything up before expanding the base, as the actual expansion cannot be rushed (and it takes several hours).
That being said, you should take advantage of the low cost requirements of a Tier 1 base, both in terms of materials and completion time. You can use boosts to quickly meet the demands of the main quests and claim the rewards to get started.
Complete the chapters of the main missions
Completing the main chapters of the mission should be your priority early in the game, as the rewards give you a large amount of resources. This is the fastest way to acquire resources early on, until you further improve your resource yield.
Quests also grant resources
Even though the rewards aren’t as onerous as the main missions, you shouldn’t neglect completing the rest of the quests.
Maximize your storage
Expanding your base during the first few levels is one thing and it’s quite easy but the further you go the more difficult it becomes as the demands increase with each step. Make sure to maximize your warehouses as you will need the storage of materials needed to upgrade your base to higher levels.
A very important aspect of Infinite Lagrange is time – real world time. Make sure to maximize your time away from the game by building structures that give you resources over time.
Establish a constant flow of resources
As mentioned above, the further you advance in the world of Infinite Lagrange, the more challenges you will have to overcome. Having established a constant flow of resources (Metal, Deuterium, Crystals) is very important to move forward. Send your utility ships to mining nodes and protect them. A good little tip for expanding the storage of your utility vessels is to pair them with a cruise ship.Outpost Command Center
With the completion of Base Area 4, you will be able to build an Outpost Command Center. These outposts can be docked at certain resource nodes. These docks cannot be mined, but when you move your base to the node you will get a resource bonus. Different nodes offer different bonuses, be sure to find the one that best suits your needs.
