Interdimensional Rift

Interdimensional Rift

Long ago the Great Race learned how to master the subspace. They used it for travel and communication, but also for more mundane purposes, like storage. If you are lucky enough to uncover one of the Great Race's storage rifts, many of your storage needs will be covered.

The Interdimensional Rift (or IDR) provides storage for all 4 basic resources and for waste.  While the base storage amount is the same for all 5 resources, the exact amount of each resource stored does vary based on affinities.  The chart below will give you a basic idea of its capacity.  Like most other things in The Lacuna, the stroage capacity increases by 1.55 per level.

Unlike the Ore Storage or Food Storage buildings do, Interdimensional Rift does not show the exact resources stored.  Neither does it allow you to dump resources.  Also it cannot reserve a specific resource from use like the Distribution Center does.

Storage Amounts by level:

(Numbers rounded off a little, figures shown are without boosts. Exact amounts depend on your affinities)


Level Storage For Each Resource
1 50,000
2 77,500
3 120,000
4 186,000
5 289,000
6 447,000

Playing Tip: The Interdimensional Rift is the ultimate in high capacity storage and is highly favored for this by top players.  Sometimes is it used to replace all other storage on a planet.  If the Interdimensional Rift is of a high level it can make recovery from a heavy Snark assault very easy since it costs nothing to repair and provides very high amounts of storage.  When combined with other high level resource producing buildings in can be used to make a colony nearly impervious to assault by ships because all glyph buildings are free to repair and produce large amounts of resources.  This building would provide all the storage needed to repair the standard buildings It is due to this very reason that the Saben are such a difficult AI to take down. *The Saben have been shrunk down into a pea in recent months. So, they are no longer a threat, even with glyph buildings.

You can construct an Interdimensional Rift at the Archaeology Ministry by combining  methane, zircon, and fluorite glyphs.

5icydee: "and a level 30 rift will store 16.5 billion of each resource. :)"
5Blacksilver: "And a level 30 rift can be built for ONLY 1,859 glyphs! :)"
0Tralala French: "Base storage is 50000 + 4% per related affinity point; it doesn't let you dump stuff or look at specific ores so a distribution center with it is nice. A rift is equivalent to all 5 regular storage buildings 11 level higher approx."
0dastardly1: "I accidentally deleted this comment:

"Samuelxcs: "At level 1, an interdimensional rift can be upgraded to level 30 for 300 Essentia, if you get the Halls for 10 Essentia each."

what I had meant to do was respond to it saying, to the best of my limited understanding, you would need to start with a level 29 interdimensional rift to upgrade it to level 30 for 300 Essentia (assuming the same price of 10 Essentia per Hall""
0ore swappers: "Base storage is 50000 + 4% per related affinity point; it doesn't let you dump stuff or look at specific ores so a distribution center with it is nice. A rift is equivalent to all 5 regular storage buildings 11 level higher approx. IF the * 1.55 per level rule is correct. However the table shows differences with every other storage math in the game, could an experienced player please verify?"
0Garloo: "With maxed affinities and boost, an IR can store 25,309,331,959 of each resource."
