This base includes a new Warp Gate; initially only combat units manufactured/trained at Aurora-1 could be sent from Aurora-1 but later units could be transfered with the Gate having a new Transfer option added. Later another Gate was granted. The Engineering Lab and Fleet Academy were granted on 2012 Sep 25.
All Research (except for Bombas, which requires a Tech Lab on your A1) is still done from the Main Base, and your researched Units can be built on both Bases (except for Bombas which can only be built on your A1). If you want Bombas on your Main Base you must transfer them using the A1's Warp Gate (or Staging Areas, with the size of transfer still limited by the capability of your A1 Warp Gates). Any Fleet Academy Troops require a Fleet Academy on your A1 in order to build those Troops on your A1; again you can transfer A1 Fleet Academy Troops from your A1 to your Main Base if you wish by clicking on your A1's Warp Gate or Staging Areas.
Resources can now be shared between the two bases by clicking a Supply Depot and selecting Transfer Resources.

While the Engineering Lab is available, the Defense Simulator is still exclusive to your main base. Any parts acquired from your main base can be used in your Aurora-1 Engineering Lab.
While you are not able to construct an additional Simulator, the Fleet Academy has been unlocked and is now available! This means Chimera and Devastators can now be constructed on Aurora-1! Make sure to check your outpost for more details, or visit the shop to purchase your Aurora-1 Schematic today!
