In the upper center of the window, you will see your super group name and motto.

In the upper right of the window, you will see two buttons:

While in super group mode, you will be able to gather base salvage and will accumulate prestige for the super group to use in constructing your base or paying your base rent. You may also toggle super group mode on or off using the /sgmode command.

Super Group Member Permissions

Super Group Member Permissions Screen

This screen can be viewed by clicking on the "Pick Permissions" field on the Super Group Registration screen. Leaders with sufficient privileges are able to modify the permissions for any super group leadership tier ranked lower than their own character's super group rank.

  • Permission to perform an action is granted to a specific rank when the bubble to the right of that action is filled below that rank.
  • Permission to perform an action is denied to a specific rank when the bubble to the right of that action is emptied below that rank.
  • Permissions may be toggled when editing by clicking on the bubbles.
  • Permission to perform an action may be granted to a lower rank and denied to a higher one.
  • The Leader/Overlord rank in each super group is granted permission to perform any and all functions. (Since you can only modify permissions for ranks lower than your own, Leader/Overlord settings may not be modified.)

In addition to the settings above, those with sufficient permission may modify base entry permissions.

  • Coalition Member - Enabling this setting allows any member of any super group in your coaliton to enter your base.
  • Leader Teammates - Enabling this setting allows any member of a team led by one of your super group members to enter your base.

Any character who is not a member of your super group that is granted access to your base will have limited use of some of your base's equipment. For example:

Joe Boresight and his team step out of a mission door in Peregrine Island. Joe selects another mission for his team. This new mission is located in the Hollows. Normally, his teammates would have to pass through at least two other zones before reaching the Hollows. However, Joe's super group has a telepad in their base connected to a The Hollows beacon. Since the leaders of Joe's super grouphave "Enabled" the leader teammates base entry permission, the members of Joe's team may enter his super group's base through the base portal located in Peregrine Island and use the base telepad to transport themselves immediately to the Hollows.

Super Group Colors Screen

Super Group Colors Screen

You can view the Super Group Colors Screen by clicking on the "Accept" button on the Super Group Registration screen.

This screen allows you to modify your the appearance your costume will take on when in super group mode. You can change the primary and secondary color of any costume piece you are wearing by clicking on the appropriate colored bubbles. As you change your color settings, you will see the changes in colors reflected in your avatar on the right side of the screen.

The first column of colors displays the current setting for each costume piece's primary color. You may retain the current primary color of the piece that you originally selected in the costume creator, or you may select to change the color to the primary or secondary super group color when you enter super group mode.

The second column of colors displays the current setting for each costume piece's secondary color. You may retain the current secondary color of the piece that you originally selected in the costume creator, or you may select to change the color to the primary or secondary super group color when you enter super group mode.

Notice that you may select from both the primary and secondary super group colors for both the primary and secondary colors of your costume pieces.

In addition to selecting your super group mode costume colors, at the bottom of the list is an option to show or hide your super group emblem. Hiding the super group emblem will allow you to retain the setting for your chest detail that you selected in the costume creator. Showing the super group emblem will cause the super group emblem to be displayed as your chest detail, overriding any chest detail you may have selected in the costume creator.

Clicking "Cancel" in the lower left corner of this screen will allow you to cancel any changes you made and return to the Super Group Registration screen.

Clicking "Accept" in the lower right corner of this screen will save any changes you have made and return you to the main user interface.
