What is the Base system in Arknights? This section of the game can be unlocked after you complete 0-11 in the game's campaign mode. The base lets you set up facilities for production, as well as other functions. You can assign different Operators in each facility, and expand the rooms based on the resources that you have available.

Resources Used

As more rooms are cleaned, your drone count will increase. Drones are increased as you increase the power plant level.

Power - Any building and upgrading facilities use power. Depending on how much power you have, your facilities will be restricted by that number and cannot exceed it. Power can be increased by building power plants.

Lungmen Dollar - Used for production in your factories, and obtainable as well from stages. You can get goods from your facilities which are then placed on the trading post to get profits.
