Warp gates can only be built on Moons.
Only the owner of a moon may use its Warp Gate.
Owning a single warp gate has no benefit: there is no point in being able to send ships to a another warp gate if there is no other warp gate to send them to.
If a player has 2 or more moons with a warp gate on each they can transport an entire fleet instantly from one to the other without using hydrogen.
Resources cannot be moved via warp gates.
Once you have at least two moons with warp gates, select the moon that has the ships you wish to warp from and display the Fleets view. Select the second moon you want to warp to as the destination. Select the ships you want to warp. The Warp option should be added to the Mission types. Select Warp. Click Dispatch Fleet. This action does require an open Fleet Slot.
Simply remember that you cannot take resources with you through a warp gate, so if your fleet is transported, make sure you have some hydrogen at your destination. If you need to send resources between the two galaxies where you have warp gates, use a transport mission from moon to moon, as Oracles cannot scan moons.
Construction Cost and Cooldown
Building a warp gate beyond level 1 provides a 15% reduction in cool down time per level. Where the warp gates have different cool down times, the time of the gate being sent from will apply to both gates.
