The following table lists available buildings. The name of each building links to all of its details, but the most important properties are listed right here. Each building has a purpose, the kind of resources or services it produces. These are either provided only to the planet on which the building is located, to all planets in the system or to the entire empire of the player.

Depending on the type of building it may or may not be possible to construct more than one on the same planet. In the case of mines, it is always possible to construct another one (if a spot is available). For ground based facilities which allow duplicates, you have to construct the first one, upgrade it to maximum level and only then more can be built.

Some of the buildings which are unique per planet produce for the entire system. In those cases "System (total)" means that having multiple of those buildings in a system adds their productions together. "System (best)" on the other hand means that only the best of those buildings functions; any identical or lower level buildings on other planets in that system are effectively useless.

Revision as of 00:08, June 16, 2014

Buildings can be erected on dedicated spots on planets and in their orbits. There are three types of buildings that are built on three basic types of spots: mining, ground based and orbital places. Every planet has 4 free spots in its orbit. The amount of the respective mining and ground based building places depends on the planet type.

Legend

The following table lists available buildings. The name of each building links to all of its details, but the most important properties are listed right here. Each building has a purpose, the kind of resources or services it produces. These are either provided only to the planet on which the building is located, to all planets in the system or to the entire empire of the player.

Depending on the type of building it may or may not be possible to construct more than one on the same planet. In the case of mines, it is always possible to construct another one (if a spot is available). For ground based facilities which allow duplicates, you have to construct the first one, upgrade it to maximum level and only then more can be built.

Some of the buildings which are unique per planet produce for the entire system. In those cases "System (total)" means that having multiple of those buildings in a system adds their productions together. "System (best)" on the other hand means that only the best of those buildings functions; any identical or lower level buildings on other planets in that system are effectively useless.
