A Building building represents a collection of facilities scattered across a world that create Pop job.png Jobs that generate different kinds of resources that are not suitable to large-scale resource gathering. If a world's population is completely wiped out (either by resettlement or warfare), all existing buildings are removed.

Building slots[edit | edit source]

Buildings are constructed in a colony's Mod planet max buildings add.png building slots. A colony can have up to 12 building slots, although most of them are initially unavailable and the first one is dedicated to the colony's capital building. Additional building slots are unlocked by upgrading the capital building, constructing urban districts, researching technologies, and some civics. Planet city.png Ecumenopolises, Planet ringworld.png Ring Worlds, Planet infested.png Hive Worlds, and Planet ai.png Machine Worlds start with all building slots unlocked. Planet habitat.png Habitats have far fewer ways to unlock building slots than other colony classes, and can't normally unlock all 12.

Planetary build speed [edit | edit source]

The Mod planet building build speed mult.png planetary build speed modifier reduces the Time time it takes to construct all buildings. This modifier can be very useful, as it also affects building upgrades, and higher level buildings often take longer to build. Note that this modifier actually increases the rate of construction, thus a 100% increase in build speed is equal to a 50% reduction in build time.

Capital[edit | edit source]

The capital always occupies the first building slot and provides some of the basic housing, amenities, jobs that reduce crime and spawn defense armies, as well as other jobs which vary depending on empire authority and civics. Upgrading the capital is one of the ways of unlocking additional building slots. Capital buildings cannot be demolished, downgraded or disabled, and will automatically be converted to the appropriate type if traded, ceded, or conquered by another empire with a different authority or if the planet designation is changed.

Capital tiers[edit | edit source]

Capital buildings can generally be categorized into 4 tiers by which technology unlocks that tier,[1] what other buildings require them,[2] and the max general productivity bonus that they can apply. The standard capitals line up on these criteria neatly, however other types do not. With Nemesis.png Nemesis, the GalacticEmpire mainButton.png Galactic Emperor can upgrade their capital planet or habitat with a "fifth" tier imperial capital building.

Habitat capitals[edit | edit source]

Habitats have their own capital buildings, which are used by all empires. If the GalacticEmpire mainButton.png Galactic Emperor has a habitat as their capital, they can upgrade the capital to the respective Imperial capital. Habitat Administration counts as tier 2, except for job productivity, for which it has no bonus. Habitat Central Control counts as tier 4 for building requirements and tier 2 for job productivity.

Special designation capitals[edit | edit source]

Resort Worlds and Thrall Worlds have their own unique capital buildings. For each designation, the basic capital acts as tier 2, except for job productivity, for which it has no bonus; the upgraded capitals convert as tier 3 and count as tier 2 for job productivity and as tier 4 for building requirements.

Hive Mind capitals[edit | edit source]

Machine Intelligence capitals[edit | edit source]

Auth machine intelligence.png Machine Intelligence empires have the same four capital tiers as regular empires. Capital conversion works normally, except that the Administrative Array (tier 2) will convert to a Reassembled Ship Shelter (tier 1) if the planet is conquered by a non-Gestalt empire.[3] Also, the Planetary Processor (tier 3) counts as tier 4 for building requirements.[4] Civic machine assimilator.png Driven Assimilators' capitals have one less Job replicator.png Replicator and, after tier 1, one more Job maintenance drone.png Maintenance Drone than other Auth machine intelligence.png Machine Intelligence empires' capitals.

Buildings[edit | edit source]

Regular buildings[edit | edit source]

Each regular building has up to 3 tiers, which determine its number of jobs, upkeep, construction time and cost. Tier II and III buildings also require a certain strategic resource for construction and upkeep.

Tier Pop job.png Jobs Upkeep Monthly upkeep cost Mod planet building cost mult.png Building cost
Energy.png Energy Menu icon strategic resource.png Strategic resources Time Time Minerals.png Minerals Menu icon strategic resource.png Strategic resources
I +2 −2 0 360 400 0
II +4 −5 −1 480 600 50
III +6 −8 −2 600 800 100

If a world is conquered by an empire that uses a different set of buildings for the same primary resource, the existing buildings will be converted into new ones of the same tier. Tiered buildings cannot be constructed on Thrall Worlds.

Gaia Seeders[edit | edit source]

Gaia Seeders can only be constructed by empires with the Civic idyllic bloom.pngCivic hive idyllic bloom.png Idyllic Bloom civic. Building and upgrading Gaia Seeders takes Time 480 days for each phase and requires a tier 2 or above capital and the following planet classes:

  • Initially, the planet class must match that of the primary species' homeworld. Upkeep on such worlds is not increased.
  • If the Tech terrestrial sculpting.png Terrestrial Sculpting technology is researched, the planet needs to match the climate of the primary species' homeworld. Upkeep on such worlds is increased by +25%.
  • If the Tech ecological adaptation.png Ecological Adaptation technology is researched, the planet can be of any class except Planet nuked.png Tomb World. Upkeep on such worlds is increased by +50%.
  • If the Tech climate restoration.png Climate Restoration technology is researched, the planet can be a Planet nuked.png Tomb World as well. Upkeep on such worlds is increased by +75%.
  • Gaia Seeders cannot be built on planet classes that cannot be terraformed (Gaia, Ecumenopolis, Hive, Machine, Relic, and artificial worlds). If the world is terraformed into such a class, the building is removed.

Military[edit | edit source]

Pre-FTL[edit | edit source]

Pre-FTL buildings can be found on planets owned by pre-FTL civilizations. They have negligible output and no upkeep and are removed or converted if the civilization is conquered or discovers FTL.

Fallen empire[edit | edit source]

Fallen Empire buildings are found on the homeworlds and planets of Fallen Empires. These buildings use incredibly advanced arcane technology, and as such are exceptionally effective compared to regular empire buildings. Most are autonomous, and can be used by other empires if captured. Ruined Fallen Empire buildings can be repaired. Fallen Empires, awakened or not, can never build more Fallen Empire buildings (with a few exceptions), making these buildings highly valuable.

Using the Reverse-Engineer Arcane Technology artifact action has a small chance to allow the user to build a Fallen Empire building on one of their planets. Each building takes Time 480 days to construct. If demolished however, they cannot be rebuilt.
