Console:Buildings

Version

Outliner top.png
This article has been verified for the current console version (2.2) of the game.

A building provides variety of jobs that generate different kinds of resource that are not suitable to large-scale resource gathering. They are limited by the planet's population and capped to 16 buildings at 75 pops, with the first slot always being occupied by the colony's capital building. Each additional Pop.png 5 pops unlock a new building slot. If the number of pops falls below the number required tor a building slot any constructed building will go into disrepair and stop producing jobs. If a planetary population is completely wiped out (either by resettlement or warfare), all pre-existing buildings will be completely destroyed.

Planet Build SpeedEdit

  Planet Build Speed is a modifier that lowers the building time for all buildings. This modifier can be very useful, as it also affects building upgrades, and higher level buildings can take longer to build.

Colony CapitalEdit

The Colony Capital always occupies the first building slot and provides some of the basic housing, amenities, jobs that reduce crime and spawn defence armies, and other jobs which vary depending on empire authority and civics. Many other buildings require a sufficiently high-level capital building before they can be built or upgraded, which gates your colony's development. Capital buildings cannot be demolished, downgraded, ruined, or disabled.

Standard CapitalsEdit

The standard set of capitals are built on planets and ringworlds by      authorities. The base capital provides   Colonist jobs that produce food and amenities to assist with the initial upkeep of a newly settled colony, they are removed upon upgrading. The upgraded capitals provide the following jobs:

  •   Enforcer jobs to reduce crime, spawn defence armies and produce a small amount of unity.
  •   Administrator jobs produce unity and amenities.

The following civics replace some Administrator jobs with other   Ruler strata jobs:

  •   Aristocratic Elite with   Noble jobs providing planet stability and amenities.
  •   Exalted Priesthood with   High Priest jobs that produce unity, amenities and society research.
  •   Merchant Guilds with   Merchant jobs that produce trade value and amenities.
  •   Technocracy with   Science Director jobs that produce research and amenities.

If an empire chooses the   Synthetic Evolution ascension perk the capital buildings will also provide   Roboticist jobs to assist with robotic pop assembly.

ResourceEdit

These buildings improve the production of basic resources and provide extra storage.

StorageEdit

Planetary resource silos increase an empire's maximum storage capacity. All material resources (except   Trade Value, which will be automatically converted into other resources) and strategic resources must be stored, and all excessive products that cannot be stocked will be lost.

Food ProductionEdit

Food Processing Facilities directly boosts the   Food output of   Farmers. Because of the high yield of Farmers, building lots of Agricultural Districts and a Processing Facility is a very pop-efficient way of producing lots of Food.

If an organic empire finds itself lack of potential Agricultural Districts due to bad luck, they can instead build Hydroponics Farms to provide Farmer jobs to prevent starvation.

TradeEdit

Trade buildings create Clerk and Merchant Jobs, which generate Trade Values and Amenities. Trade Value is converted to   Energy,   Unity and   Consumer Goods depending on the Empire's Trade Policy. While Clerk Jobs have a poor yield of only 2 Trade Value per Jobs, Commerce buildings provide a significant number of them. This makes this building type suitable for tall planets with a large population.

Generating Energy Credits through Trade is a tall alternative to Generator Districts and an Energy Hub. While requiring significant investment and time for pops to grow, the yields of a Clerk workforce overshadows that of a Technician workforce. A default City District will provide housing for 5 pops for a total of 10 base Trade Value, whereas a default Generator District will provide housing for 2 pops that generate 8 base Energy Credits.

  Gestalt Consciousness cannot utilize trade buildings because they have no civilian economy.
