This is a summary table of all buildings in the game. A building is something that is visible on the ground, and you can do something with it besides pick it up, and can be built by players.
Before updating this list or creating new building pages, please read the Guidelines at the bottom of this page.
See also the Buildings Index.
Please keep the items in alphabetical order, with the name used in-game.

Building Page Guidelines
When creating a new building page, please observe the format used in existing pages. For details on the template to use and how to denote requirements and item production so autogenerated lists on resource pages pick it up, please see Template:BuildingInfo.
In future, this list should be automatically generated from all the building pages. In the meantime, please observe these guidelines when updating the list.
- Name: The name of the building when you try to build it or click on it in the game.
- Cost: The cost of the building, briefly, for quick reference.
- Size: The size of the building when built inside a compound.
- Where: How the building is built:
- CP = inside a Compound
- Out = Self > Projects menu
- Out* = Self > Projects menu, but only by a Peasant
- SCS = Small Construction Site
- MCS = Medium Construction Site
- ACS = Aqueduct Construction Site
- Brief Description: Just some comment about it, in case people don't want to load the individual pages.
- Prerequisite: What you need to have to build
- Sk = Skill
- Tc = Tech
- Ts = Test (started, not passed)
- All buildings (as defined above) should be in the list. If you know of a building that is not in the list, please add it.
- All buildings should appear in the list AS NAMED IN GAME. So if it's "oreinferno" in game, it should be "oreinferno" here. Including capitalization, please.
- The authoritative form is the name you get when you click on the completed building "This is a Foo."
- If you think "Ore Inferno" should link to "oreinferno," others probably agree. Add a page that REDIRECTS Ore Inferno to oreinferno using the Formatting rules.
- If you think "Ore Infernos" and "oreinfernos" and "inferno" and "infernos" should all link there too, since people will want to link with singular and plurals, or any other kinds of things similar to this, others probably agree. Add a page that REDIRECTS those pages to oreinferno, using the Formatting rules.
- Groupings are allowed and encouraged. "Furnaces" should exist, and should describe furnaces in general, then link to each individual furnace. Same with any other groups people feel are appropriate.
- Please add any buildings to the list if they exist and are not in the list.
- Please fill in the building detail page, using the building template.
- Cost to build (including links to each resource).
- Things the building can produce, costs involved, etc, including links to resources/buildings where appropriate.
- Links to closely related topics. For instance, the "Anvil" page will link to "Blacksmithing" because they are related.
- Please include a [[Category:Buildings]] tag at the end of the detail page.
- If you want to develop extensive information, such as how-to, theory pages, FAQs, etc, please make separate pages, as this is intended to be a list of fact, not speculation or theory.
