I want to collect some tips for the Hideout, what i think is important to consider when you design the architecture
It's not a complete description, you can get good tooltips at the rooms in Hideout.
You can have a look at all possible rooms when you click on the hammer at the right side of screen in Hideout, it's between the up- and down-arrows.
The Hideout is a kind of game inside the game, where you can get benefits for your hero:
you can build (and expand) rooms that produce coins, XP or you can build modification-parts for increasing the skills of your hero.
And you can steal resources from others, only the resources in your storage of Hideout-Base a safe. If you attack others, you need to defend more. So there are some players, who never attacked anyone and nobody can steal there. But they never get some of the deeds
For expansion you need coins and resources (super-glue and zeronite). You can fasten the expansion with donuts. But not endless: you need to wait, until you build new resources, you need them for expanding.
Really useful are Generator-rooms. They boost the rooms left and right. With same costs like one room-expansion at same level, you can boost two rooms and your production in neighbour-rooms is not interrupted meanwhile.
you have to consider your priorities: what do you want to earn? Place your maximum of 3 generators proper for boosting your prefered rooms! Have a look at the needed space for rooms, some need 2 or 3 places.
You can have a look at the hideout from other players, you can learn there
Rooms, that can be boosted by generator
some rooms give more and can store more with an generator next to them: Superglue-manufacturer, Zeronite-mine, Hideout-base for coins, Lab of Infinite-Knowledge for XP.
Others are speed up by boost: Attack- and Defencebot Factory, Workshop
The Workrobot-Improvment-Unit gets important to expand or rearrange rooms in shorter time. The needed time for expanding rooms and new constructions-sides increases rapidly! So have a close look to the time needed, else your working-bot can be occupied for days or weeks! And you can put some rooms faster into storage and use other rooms for a time. When you have a set of modifications-parts build in the workshop, you can put this room into storage for a while.
And you will run out of coins fast, so the new Brokerage-Center gets important. It takes a long time to build it, so better have an expanded Workrobot-Improvment
Learn from others, have a look at their design
Team-benefit: the hideoutbase and the workshop have a bonus from team, if your teammates have expanded it also.
