View Full Version : Modern War base expansion cost

There seems to be no predictable cost to base expansions. I've filled out as much as I have documented.
Expansion times seems to be capped at 48 hours but cost has not.
Feel free to add to this thread and check postings for accuracy.
I will update original post whenever possible.
Any new players or those starting to expand base should add to this thread for a complete expansion cost from the 1st square (over and above the original 4) onwards.

Expand base squares:

34 - 3,100,000
35 - 3,300,000
36 - 3,600,000
37 - 4,000,000
38 - 4,300,000
39 - 4,600,000
40 - 5,000,000
41 - 8,000,000
42 - 8,500,000
43 - 9,000,000
44 - 9,500,000
45 - 10,000,000
46 - 11.000,000
47 - 12,000,000
48 - 13,000,000
49 - 14,000,000
50 - 15,000,000
51 - 16,000,000
52 - 17,000,000
53 - 18,000,000
54 - 19,000,000
55 - 20,000,000
56 - 22,000,000
57 - 24,000,000
58 - 26,000,000
59 - 28,000,000
60 - 30,000,000
61 - 32,000,000

Special thanks to GIJOE for latest updates.

That's quite a jump on the 41st square! Is there even a need for this?

I've decided to level up on one account. At level 12 I have the max number of non gold income and defense buildings.
There's an additional 60 odd income, defense and boost buildings available to purchase assuming Funzio does not introduce anymore which is unlikely as even Crime City has added some new buildings recently.

The 60 odd buildings would include 5 of each available defense buildings and 1 of each boost building. I'm going to assume you can only buy 1 boost building which I will find out by level 13.

Granted not all buildings will be 1 square in surface area but with that said even with optimal placement of all existing buildings I have about at max 30 free squares at the moment. Also there is bound to be wasted space as defense buildings should generally be placed optimally to cover as many other buildings as possible. A staggered approach is best.

With that said I don't think 40 base expansion is sufficient for someone who wants all possible non gold buildings.

Does it become less fun when you take it so seriously?

I think it's even more fun when taking it seriously.

Not necessarily "fun" but more satisfying and pleasing to the eye.

Hey emcee, thanks for sharing the info man. I find it amazing that there weren't many comments supporting the sharing of your info. This is particularly useful for the fact that, as you pointed out, there truly is no pattern to be found here (or is there...not a math major!).

44 - 9,500,000
45 - 10,000,000

Have not built further than this yet because i just bought a nanotech and now i've been putting my cash into a mission that requires 20 osprey gunners. Im guessing there's going to be some sort of jump at 10mil on the 46th expansion.

10 mil. for square. Then I'll need bigger vault

Point is, when you get up that high and have an economy of millions per day - what else are you going to spend money on? There has to be SOME challenge to the game or your would be so bored you'd jump to Diablo 3 next month and leave MW behind :/

Well said Mcdoc. Al Murkya has added you as an ally. Please accept so that I may check out your digs. Also, do the same and come check out mine. We will each surely be equally impressed.

I have a question; Whereas Crime City rewards players who increase their mafia size with buildings such as the Loft, Movie Cinema, Night Club, etc, does Modern War have similiar rewards for adding allies?

Is there a listing of the building sizes and standard land block size?

This got answered in the Guide to Noob thread, and the standard block size appears to be 14*14.

What's max number of squares you can expand on your base ? Does anyone know ?

Probably as large as the area of all the ground in your screen. I wonder though at what point you run into crashes due to having too many graphical elements.

Thanks Emcee and JMC for the info!

I just bought my 41st square this morning. I was shocked as well. There is indeed a need for it, although it really only comes down to wanting every building. I'm clearing a little space for sewage plants. I'll most likely stop buying once it hits $10m.

Starting the 46th, the cost already exceeds the vault max. Not to mention, 61th costs 32,000,000. How could anyone manage to pull this off? Is this real?

You have to save unprotected cash or sell buildings to raise over 10m , I got all non gold buildings and comp factory in 50 squares , if you wasn't bothered about what your defence buildings cover you could do it with a couple of less squares.

I got that wrong I have 54 squares.

JMC

I got 55 squares holding all the free buildings as well as 2 geothermal plants a diamond mine and a composites factory that i got off gold i accumulated over time.

Aside from that i have 3 empty squares worth of space in the bottom right corner and those buildings take up almost 4 squares of space. So a free player with a good base design could get all buildings put in with 48 or 49 squares. Which would be the 44th or 45th expansion, with cost lying under the vault maximum of 10mil.

Yes, it has been done and it's possible if you have very strong defense to fend off rival !

Pretty much you need to be a camper in the low levels, have 200K+ defence in the high levels or be friends with everyone that is stronger than you.

My last expansion was $17M which accomodates every available building I want. Debating expanding further now for futre release buildings.

You lot are oligarchs..
My next expansion doesn't even make it to the bottom of your list.
2.3 million for it, would be my 34th square but I don't know what upgrade it actually is.
Still haven't filled in all the ones I currently have anyway...

Thought this was worth a bump. just completed the 9Mil expansion, waiting for the 9.5 mil. I have alot buildings crammed into a small space, some new people might want to see this. Should be filled out though when possible.

My next square seems to be 41 or 8,000,000 cost.

Ryans67

Next one is $26m. I wish I could convince support to redo a couple of my squares. For example, only doing 4 water with 2 shoreline. I also put two squares in the wrong direction. :confused:. Definately should have a plan from the start.

check out my base for cramming buildings. I am light on defense buildings but cram alot into the space I have.

Just paid 17 million for an expansion... Lots of money. I dont really need it, but like mcdog said, after you have built everything you need a challenge. If that means expansions, so be it ;)

my next expansion is 12 million but don't need to expand for a long time lolol. saving every penny now for my EPP's

when I see those price tag, its sure I sell my defensive buildings before I expand an other time, probably my infirmary also!
