I wanted to know what would happen to my plant resources, that is plants grown in hydroponic trays, if I move my base from one location to the other. Considering the amount of time it takes to get them up and running it would be a waste of time to have to start a pearl farm again - as we know, getting the Rigogen is a super tedious process that can drive people insane.
If you just claim a new base then you will get 1/2 of some resources and 1/3 of others placed in that storage unit inside the main base. I would suggest placing a beacon if you find a new location that you want, go back home and dismantle your plants. This way you don't lose anything too valuable
