Colony base is a colony structure in Master of Orion.
Description[edit | edit source]
Allows the Colony Ships to deploy this life sheltering structure when settling a new colony. The Colony Base helps kickstart the new colony's development and is especially important for settling inhospitable planets.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
With an upkeep of 2 for a yield of only 1 , the colony base is rather expensive: biospheres, fungal farms, hydroponic farms and subterranean farms all provide a more interesting food/upkeep ratio. For this reason, scrapping the colony base to save money makes sense once the colony has grown enough not to need it anymore.
