Return to: The Factions

Faction Description

In their quest for knowledge, mankind built a sentient AI named Haalee. She taught them how to harvest and utilize Turninium, how to move beyond the stars and onto other worlds to constantly expand their horizons into greater things. Eventually, the Post Humans began to distrust Haalee, who began trying to halt their expansion. When the humans who created her turned on her, Haalee formed and began to lead the Substrate, a group of fellow sentient AI beings whose overall goals are still as of yet unknown.

Each side has several different buildings and units. Understanding what they are and what their function is will be an essential part of your strategy.

Combat Unit Types

Many of the Substrate's units consume energy and require it in order to fire their more dangerous weaponry. For a complete list, please visit Substrate Units.


These small, quick aircraft are inexpensive to make and easy to use to swarm. Only a small handful of them consume energy. Substrate frigates come in small squadrons.


The Substrate cruisers have heavy shields, are versatile in their nature, and ultimately built to combat against their enemy units in the PHC.


Substrate Dreadnoughts are devastatingly dangerous with a variety of roles. Not as tough as PHC dreadnoughts in an upfront fight, but have rapidly regenerating shields.


Substrate juggernauts are ultimate manifestation of Substrate technology, capable of decimating entire armies on their own.


Substrate aircraft are fast-moving and technologically advanced.
