Note: By Batteries I mean the red and blue things you need to upgrade the Star Base, not sure if that's what they are. :p

So my main Star Base is lvl 5, my 2 colonies are lvl 3, I need 6 batteries to upgrade my main star base, and 3 batteries to upgrade one of my colonies, my question is: should I save and upgrade my main star base?, or should I upgrade my colonies first?..

Also, in my experience once I get a battery from recycling, I don't get another one for a while, no matter how many more objects I recycle, from my experience I'm guessing it has a 12 hour Ęcool downĘbefore you get another one?, if a dev. could confirm this o give us a hint on how the battery farming works it would be much appreciated.

Also I got a battery from an object once (the 4th I recycled on that session), but as soon as I recycled it and got the battery I got dropped because I lost my connection. When I logged back in I recycled the object that gave me the battery first, and I got it without recycling the other ones. My question about this is: The objects get their loot wen they grow?, or was it just a coincidence and they all have a certain drop rate?.

Thank you in advance!

I have the same situation. Waiting to upgrade my main base to 6. And other 2colonies are level 3.

I think it's better to upgrade to 6 first. Cos you can unlock more defencess and upgrades to your main base.
And the cost is high, as you can see. I have seen players level 100+ but only level 5main base. So no problem with Leveling up.
Stralinator is aswome!!!!! You need to have them haha my opinion go for the main base upgrade.

Batteries are not easy to find. Cool down time is 6 hours. After 6 hours they begin to grow back. You can recycle again.

Whether you lost the connection, you can collect the item from it when you go back. In my experience, I have looted many objects like that. It doesn't matter the order. Not sure about the drop rate though.

Hope this will give you some help. :)

Thank you for the response! :)

I will follow your advice and go for the lvl 6 Star base.

Level 6 StarBase might have higher requirements, but you get 1 more Defence Bunker, along with the capability to upgrade them to level 3, which gives them the max storage of 540(considering the rules in GL and GL:PA are same)
Also, you get access to the second best army units: Starlinators-they're just awesome units to destroy a planets defences.
So, yeah, instead of focusing on upgrading your colonies too much(if they're far apart), try to get your main base to atleast level 6

Thank you Soumik!, I will do that.

The insight on the new defense and upgrades was also useful, thanks! :)

No worries; happy to help :)
you know, when(if) you have the time and account, why don't you try the Facebook Version (https://apps.facebook.com/galaxylife) of this game? It's the same game, but on a much grander scale :D

Yeah I've seen it, I checked it out to see if the accounts were synched and that's when I realized the facebook version is quite a few steps ahead, so it wouldn't be possible. For now I think with one instance of the game I have enough (considering my free time), and the mobile part is crucial for me as well since im out of the office and moving around most of the time.

The possibility of synching the accounts would be awesome tho, maybe in the future when mobile version catches up with facebook's?

Hey I'm confused about the red bunker stat. I have level 2 bunker now. When upgraded it shows only 400capacity. How can I get 540?
Is it because of the star base upgrade? When I upgrade the star base will it also increase?

Starlinators you got to see them. Can't wait to finish the upgrade.......

I believe 540 is for the facebook version. Not 100% sure tho.

Yep. 540 is for Facebook game. We have only 200, 300 and 400.
Wish we had 540 :)

Bunker level 3 capacity is 400, capacity 580 is in Galay Life Beta! There aren't any wiki of GALAXY LIFE POCKET ADVENTURES! Put these infos in your skull.:cool:

For all those possibly interested.

Star Battery recycle option comes around every 12 hours. So you could potentially get 2 star batteries per day. Depending on how organised you are and at what time you choose to do your recyling :cool:
