Overview[]

Secure Base Plots range in size from the smallest grid of 12x16 units to the largest 24x28 grid. Secure locations can have backup control and energy sources, as well as more backup batteries. These can allow for more Energy, Control, and Battery Base Items to be placed within the Base than allowed by Hidden Base Plots.

Secure Base Plots have a greater cost than Hidden Base Plots. This greater Prestige cost ranges from the smallest Secure Base Plot requiring 240% Prestige of an equal-sized Hidden Base Plot to over five times the cost of the largest of the Hidden Base Plots for an equal-sized Secure Base Plot.

Cost/Sq
Cost per square of area.
Rent/Sq
Rent per square of area.
Rent/Cost
Rent as a percentage of plot cost.

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.
