How to Move Mine / Starbase
There is a move mode for mines and starbases. You need to activate it first, then you will be able to tow it where you want to relocate.
Select your base and press F to “talk” to it. You should see the option in the list.
Before you put it into transport mode – save the design. Then replace its design with something small (1-2 sockets). It’ll be much easier to drag around.
Then when you get it to where you want it to be and it’s not in transport mode anymore, restore the original design.
There’s no ‘tax’ for taking design X switching to design Y and then switching back to design X.
