You can collect TC from Mines around you once they are captured by you or if they are allied to your Megacorp.
Capturing Cores helps you Power your Base and allied Bases belonging to your Megacorp.
You need to plant a Base to establish the dominance of your Megacorp in a region and participate in Cluster battles. You can set up a Base by planting a Base seed from your inventory.
Hint: Plant your Base at an accessible location where there are enough allied Cores that can be connected to Power it.
Bases need Power to function. Connect Cores to your Base with the Vector Mod to Power it as well as the Mods installed on it.
Note: If a Base is in Power profit (Surplus Power from connected Cores and/ or incoming Base connections) then it starts generating TC for its owner. A portion of this TC can also be collected by allies.
Steps to connect Cores to your Base:
Deploy Vector Mods on both Core and your Base.
Click on the Vector Mod installed on the Core.
Select your Base from the list of allied Bases.
Approve the Power connection from your Inbox.
Upgrading a Base increases the number of Mod slots available and makes it more resistant to enemy attack. The higher the level of a Base the higher its health, its ability to attack enemies and the more Powerful it is in a Cluster battle.
Steps to upgrade your Base:
Bases need both Energy and TC to be upgraded.
You can either upgrade your Base as a solo player or get allied players to contribute towards upgrading your Base.
Once the required amount of TC and Energy is gained, you can upgrade your Base to the next level.
If a Base is in Power profit and initiates a connection to another allied Base it starts generating TM for its owner (if the connection is accepted). If a Base has received connections from other allied Bases it receives a boost in its health, defense and attack capabilities.
