The Mega Base is a super-sized Starbase that was added in Beta and is located in the center of the map. It is where you go to build ships, access your Warehouse, and buy/sell materials at a steady medium price. Unlike the Faction Starbases, the Mega Base is indestructible, without weapons, and is independent of factions. When player's ships are docked at the Mega Base they are invincible, though this invincibility wears off when the respective ship becomes undocked or becomes hostile. The Mega Base's ore is linked across all servers, even including private servers. Even though the Mega Base cannot be damaged, it still has 50,000 shield and hull. If the Mega Base could explode, it would have an explosive radius of 100.
The Mega Base has a total of 16 terminals and 5 "sub-terminals". Each sub-terminal has either 3 (if on the main floor) or 4 (if terminal E) terminals in it. In the center of each of these is a teleport button to the hub. On top of terminals A-D, there are rooms labeled on signs, also labeling the sub-terminals.
In the center of the Mega Base, there is a room known as the hub, which is the location of the Galaxy VIP Lounge, a glassy building with a sign saying "VIP Lounge". In the center of the hub, there is a pillar with some teleporters, which all take you to the "sub-terminals". One, however, leads you to an upper observatory. The pillar itself contains 4 screens which all have some sort of message on them.
There are also two signs that cycle through four different "Ads". These are for the Galaxy Group, Case Clicker, Sean's Empire, and Xeiron Industries. The Case Clicker ad reads "Come play the best Sci-Fi game around!". This is probably based on rcouret complaining that Case Clicker is categorized as a Sci-Fi game. Players can advertise their groups/places for these prices. 1 day 200 Robux, 3 days 500 Robux and 7 days 1000 Robux.
Mega Base Announcements
About every 2 minutes in the Mega Base, you can hear what sounds like a robot speaking on an intercom throughout the Mega Base. These are all of the sentences she says.
Tips and tricks
- If you plan to transfer items or sell and buy items at Mega Base, make sure you are not at war, pirates normally do some Pirating at Mega Base and normally attack any enemy ship they see, mainly Miners and Freighters.
- Aliens normally head to Mega Base, so be warned and look at the Minimap.
- Pirates can be lured to the Mega Base if they follow the player's ships there.
- Some small ships can get inside the Mega Base, like Wyrm or Wasp.
- Before the warp system was revised, ships were able to warp into the Mega Base with the correct timing. This was a bannable act when people used it to escape the loss of their ship in combat.
- Ships didn't need to be built at the Mega Base in Alpha since the Mega Base didn't exist.
- On the day of the release of the advertisements at the Mega Base, the prices used to be 1 day 500 Robux, 3 days 1000 Robux, and 7 days 2000 Robux, but was made cheaper due to this being too expensive.
- In older versions of galaxy, some players would “carrier camp” at the Mega Base, where they would dock their Carriers and release their Fighters, allowing them to fight without the Carrier losing its invulnerability. This was patched later on though, with invincibility being switched off when Carriers launch Fighters at the Mega Base.
- Inside the Mega Base, there is an Alien Embassy, as well as a chart with character translations for the alien language. Players cannot enter this structure, as occasionally announced by the Mega Base. More information about the Embassy can also be found in the Lore of the U.N.E.
- As of version .63f3 (ish), there is now a "Community Advisor Board" in the Mega Base, showing update logs and announcements for Galaxy.
