The HQ is the player's center of operations in Offworld Trading Company. Each HQ type has different life support and resource requirements and bonuses.

Founding an HQ[edit | edit source]

Whenever you found an HQ, any resources underneath your HQ are removed and added to your stockpile. A high resource tile gives you +20, a medium +15, and a low +10. The Robotic HQ gives you double this bonus.

HQs must be founded on flat ground.
