All information on this page is current as of Issue 13.

Hidden Base Plots are the lowest Prestige cost areas for Base construction available to supergroups. In addition to Base Plot acquisition cost, all supergroups pay a regular rent fee based on certain items in use.

There are 10 Hidden Base Plots available. Players gain the Tiny Hidden Spot for free by contacting a Super Group Registrar in either Atlas Park or Galaxy City for heroes. Villains can contact the Super Group Registrar in Port Oakes to gain their Tiny Hidden Spot. Larger Base Plots are available for increased Prestige costs from within a Base's Entrance Room to characters that have Base Editing Rights.

Hidden Base Plots range from the default 8x8 grid to the largest 24x28 grid. Hidden Base Plots have greater limitations on the number of Energy, Control, and Battery Base Items allowed than Secure Base Plots.

Note that you're doing good if, with the smaller plots, the number of squares used for rooms is at least half the total number of squares, due to unusable space between rooms.


All Hidden Bases have the following maximum item limits:

Item Type Limit
Battery 1
Control 1
Dimensional Anchor  6
Energy 1
Entrance 1
Storage 18
Workshop 6

Secure base plots allow for more battery, control and energy items if required.
