The Headquarters is a building where you can upgrade your Military Tier, purchase and install software to speed up Tower Testing, or access the AI scripting feature.

Building Tiers

Each tier adds 2 extra server slots.

Contracts

Can be purchased to gain special effects in the core game; the contract's conditions must be met to gain the effects while the contract is also active.

Click the time button of a contract cycles between the contract length options, which also cycles through the costs. Contracts can be bought for permanent use at high costs.

CPU

CPU.png

CPU increases the speed at which new technology is researched. Each server can hold a maximum of 27.49 THz CPU. You get 1 'flop' for each 20Hz, so the maximum amount of CPU possible (with 16 servers) is 21.99 T flops.

The formula for the cost of each CPU upgrade is 5tier × 4

The formula for the amount of speed each tier grants is 4tier × 25 Hz

RAM

RAM.png

RAM increases the number of lines that an AI Script can hold. Each server can hold a maximum of 1.1 PB RAM. The maximum amount of RAM possible (with 16 servers) is 17.59 PB, which allows 22 lines per AI script.

The formula for the cost of each RAM upgrade is (6tier / 0.6)

The formula for the amount of memory each tier grants is (4tier) KB

Software

Install programs to speed up the core game. The programs are:

Name Cost Time Description
Autoskip 50 2500000 flop-sec When activated it removes the waiting time between waves once all enemies have spawned and therefore slightly speeds up wave progression on lower difficulties.
Wave Streaming 250000 12500 flop-days Slowly accelerates enemies while at the same time decreasing the spawn interval duration yielding a much higher wave progression speed.
Wave Surge 7500000 100000 flop-days Improves wave streaming by increasing the maximum acceleration limit. After a certain amount of time entire waves are being skipped. Skipped waves do not trigger wave related module effects!
Critical Wavejump 2.25e7 150000 flop-days Provides a 1% chance to skip waves equal to 5% of your wave record of the current region and difficulty whenever you proceed to the next wave as long as you are below your previous record. Only works in endless mode!
Facility AI 1.75e8 200000 flop-days Unlocks the Facility AI which includes some basic programmable logic scripts.
Wave Momentum 5e8 250000 flop-days Everytime the tower destroys an enemy in endless mode you gain one more wave the next time the wave counter changes. Afterwards the destroyed enemy counter resets. Only works in endless mode!
Wave Storm 1.75e9 500000 flop-days Increases the amount the counter of Wave Momentum increases whenever an enemy is being destroyed by 10% (Multiplicatively) for each completed normal mode. Additionally increases the wave acceleration factor by 0.25 whenever an enemy is being destroyed and Wave Streaming is active.
Wave Persistence 3.75e12 1000000 flop-days Improves Wave Momentum by resetting the destroyed enemy counter only to 90% of its previous value instead of zero.
Wave Instability 5e12 2000000 flop-days Improves Critical Wavejump by increasing its chance to trigger by another 4% and increases the skipped amount to 10% of your previous record.
Wave Vortex 3e13 4000000 flop-days Removes the warm-up time from Wave Streaming and further increases the wave acceleration speed. Can be combined with Wave Surge.
Wave Catalyst 1e14 5000000 flop-days Increases the speed of Wave Streaming based on the amount of waves skipped everytime Critical Wavejump triggers. Has no effect if the wave acceleration factor already exceed 100M.
Wave Endurance 4e14 6250000 flop-days Increases the acceleration of Wave Streaming by 5% per second. (This means that the acceleration gets accelerated over time.)
New Bounds 2e15 Endless mode starts at Era 1 if the highest record in the current region and difficulty is equal to or bigger than Era 1.
Wave Marathon 7.5e15 Increases the acceleration factor of wave endurance by 100% (From 5% to 10%, 15%, 20%, ...) for each region and difficulty with a highscore equal or greater than era 1.
Wave Compression 3e16 Reduces the amount of spawn ticks per wave by 50% and increases the destroyed enemy counter of wave momentum exponentially by 0.4% everytime an enemy is being destroyed. Only works in endless mode!
Era Surge 5e16 Skips to the next Era every 10 times the wave counter changes. Only works if the current Era is at least 1.
Era Burst 3e17 Skips (Total amount of waves skipped)^0.5 eras whenever the wave counter changes. If Era Surge is active then its effect will change to a 10% boost for Era Burst
Era Swirl 8e18 Increases the amount of eras skipped the greater your gap to era 100B is. Has no effect if your current era is bigger than 100B.
Wave Horizon 9e19 Multiplies the acceleration speed of wave streaming by 25 for each region and difficulty with a highscore equal or greater than era 1. Only works if current era is below 100B.
No Bounds 3e21 Endless mode starts at Infinity 1 if the highest record in the current region and difficulty is equal to or bigger than Infinity 1.
Wave Floor 5e22 Prevents the wave counter from going below 100M if the highest era in the current region is bigger than 0.
Era Floor 5e24 Prevents the era counter from going below 100M if the highest infinity in the current region is bigger than 0.
Era Horizon 1.2e27 As long as this software is active, each difficulty in each region with a highscore equal to or greater than Infinity 1 multiplies the amount of eras skipped using era software by 4 (additively) and the exponent of era burst by 0.002 (additively). Removes the Era/Infinity restriction of Era Swirl as well.

There is another technical limit for speed which is compensated by skipping waves leading to a higher resources/sec increase at the cost of missing out a few enemies.

Military

Main article: Military Tier

In the military tab you can soft prestige after meeting certain requirements (unlocking regions, maxing out modules...), which change with every prestige.

Prestiging will reward the player with higher maximum modules tier, new buildings, software, bosses, and other features.

Prestiging will reset the level of all modules, as well as losing all your cubes. To compensate this, you are rewarded some gems.

Prestiging will not make you lose gems, exotic gems, or non-cube building resources.

You will start at Tier 0, and will eventually reach Tier 4, unlocking access to the AI. Upon reaching tier 8, you will unlock access to Era content. Infinity content is available at Tier 12.

Facility AI

Main article: AI

The Facility AI is a section unlocked by attaining military prestige 4 and installing it from software section. The AI allows for multiple automation tasks to be performed, including refreshing Mine layers, combining power stones at the Museum, using active modules automatically, or simply clicking at specific locations on the screen.
