OverviewDeposits are each dedicated to producing one of the three main types of Resources (Uranium, Titanium, and Credits) along with special Resources such as Crystals or Bioplasma.
There are three types of Deposits: large, medium and small.
The amount of Resources produced by a Deposit and its storage capacity depend on its size. The higher a Deposit's level, the more Resources it produces per hour, and the larger its capacity.
As soon as a Deposit is depleted, it will be removed from the map. The time remaining until a Deposit's depletion is displayed on the pop-up Map menu and in your Administrative buildings (Command Center and Radar).
Every new Deposit is vacant and unguarded, so try and be the first to find it. Any player can view the amount of Resources stored in the Deposit by positioning the cursor over it.
Deposit InteractionsPosition your cursor over a Deposit on Map to view its info.
You will be able to view the amount of Resources stored in Deposit, its status (whether the Deposit is vacant or captured), and choose from a set of possible Deposit actions.
ReconTo recon a Deposit, build the Industrial Syndicate and the Air Field in your Sector, then choose the number of Recon Drones you want to send for this mission and click «Send».
Successful Recon missions allow you to detect all Troops in a given Deposit - its owner's Troops and other players' Reinforcements.
Purchase and position a large number of Recon Drones to protect your Deposit from being reconned.
CaptureBuilding the Industrial Syndicate allows to capture 1 Deposit.
Select the Deposit, then choose number and kind of Troops you want to send for this mission and click «Send». If you succeed, your Troops will capture the Deposit and you'll be able to view its info under the «Deposits» tab at Command Center.
Once you've captured the Deposit, it starts accumulating Resources. You can collect Resources from Deposits once an hour. If you don't collect Resources for more than 12 hours, they stop accumulating.
If a Deposit is captured, a player doesn't get any of its previous owner's Resources. Instead the Deposit starts producing Resources again, but the total amount of Resources in the Deposit remains the same for all players.
To maintain the Deposit you captured, keep a large garrison of Defensive Troops there. Remember that you can still attack a Deposit captured by your Ally! Choose your goals carefully and make wise decisions- sometimes short-term profit isn't worth losing a valuable Alliance over. If your Troops in the Deposit are defeated and an Enemy takes control of it, all surviving Reinforcements will return to their owners.
ReinforcementsTo send and receive Reinforcements, research «Artificial Intelligence» technology and build the Command Center.
Then choose number and kind of Units you want and send them as Reinforcements to a Deposit. You can also reinforce your own Troops already stationed at your own Deposit.
Sending Reinforcements to other Deposits does not allow you to collect Resources from that Deposit. You can help your Friends control their Deposits, and they might help you in return.
If you recall all Troops from your Deposit, other players' Reinforcements will also leave and return to their owners. If all Troops in your Deposit are destroyed, all surviving Reinforcements automatically return to their owners.
To control your Reinforcements in other Deposits, go to the Command Center, open the «Garrisons» tab and choose the «Deposits» filter.
Advisors' reportsYou can get information about your and your Allies' Deposits in the Combat and Diplomatic Advisors' reports.
The Trade Advisor will inform you on Resource deliveries to your Sector.
