Question about portal distance

Ok simple question, hypothetically could you buy a t5 to build a portal to your t6 without it costing an arm and a leg on oort?

My plan is to link our t4 to the t5 I was going to buy to our existing t6

Well. If you buy t6… Its rng what t6 planet it cycles (i think region effect) . So In theory Yes you can link your sovereign To your perm planet t6 with that 1blinksec portal. But you cant link t4 t5 sovereigns bowhere Else but perm planets…
So - most efficiant way (not talking about cost)
T4 and t5 sove liked To t6 perm and thats liked To t6 sove.

You can’t build a portal from a tier 5 sov to tier 6 sov?

A portal from a t5 sov to a t6 sov would be 1 blinksec further away than making a portal from a perma t5

Because you’d have to travel: T5 Sov -(1bs)-> T5 Perma -(?bs)-> T6 Perma -(1bs)-> T6 Sov

You can make a portal straight from your t5 sov to t6 sov of course, but that is the “journey” the portal would take theoretically

Tbh you won’t know the best route until you get your T5. If you’re idea is to buy the T5 purely as a gate to your T6 it might be a case of re rolls to get the right distance…
Cheapest route to a T6 will be from orbiting planet.
T5 to T6 will depend on blinksec and as others have said will be plus 1 blinksec.

If you have the data for your existing planets can tell you the best route at the moment.


If i remeber correctly travel between t5 and t6 is somewhat big. Sovereign should use the same logic. We have medium sized portal (around 20 blocks ?) between the link of t5 -t6 and its most be the most efficient way to do it.
