Buildings can be constructed in Home Base to provide different functions, and are either exterior or interior.

It is possible to demolish a non-fixed building, but its only game benefits is freeing up space.

Time[]

All technicians assigned to civil engineering will contribute multiple man-days according to his/her technician level, trainings, and difficulty. Multiple technicians' efforts simply add up.

(details)

A typical game takes less then 150 hours to build all buildings (including extra labs and workshops). Add to the fact that all technicians can build together, building time is rarely a concern. Thus it is unnecessary to get more then one or two Al icon training minor civil engineering.pngCivil Engineering experts, if at all.

Fixed Buildings[]

These are part of the base, and cannot be built or destroyed.

Research[]

These buildings enables or speed up research.
