Buildings Manual

List of the buildings in the game

This document will list all buildings in the game, and give you some basic information about each. For now it will not contain any statistics (hitpoints, cost, etc.)

Buildings for all Civilizations

Most buildings are shared between the civilizations, they look different from civilization to civilization, but should be similar enough for you to tell which is which. In the images below, examples of some Hellenic (Greek) version is displayed. There are some buildings which are unique to specific civilizations though, see more Special Buildings.

Town Centre



Hellenistic town center


The main hub of your civilization. Typically the first building you have. Provides housing for a moderate amount of people, and you can create a selection of Citizen Soldiers as well as Female Citizens here. You can garrison a moderate amount of people for their protection and to heal them here as well. Garrisoned soldiers increase the rate of fire of this building. Resource dropsite for all resources.




Hellenistic house


Provides housing. Adds 5 or 10 to the maximum population, depending on the civilization.




Hellenistic farmstead


Resource dropsite for food. Research farming improvements.




Hellenistic field


Buildable food source, slower than other food sources (like animals and berries), but more reliable and useful later in the game when you've gathered all food from animals and fruits. Build near Farmsteads or Town Centers to get food quicker (as the citizens won't have to walk as far when dropping off the food).




Hellenistic corral


Raise/train sheep here for an additional meat supply. Currently raising an animal delivers a return of double the invested food (and you might as well harvest it right away). Research improvements on meat gathering speed.

Defense Tower



Hellenistic defense tower


Large LOS (Line of Sight) to help you discover enemy attacks. Can attack enemy units within range (even without troops inside, but with a slow rate of fire). Garrison units inside for a quicker rate of fire, as well as for their protection and healing. Research improvements to tower attack.




Hellenistic wall


Build walls to prevent enemy access to your city.

Wall Tower



Hellenistic wall tower


Attacks enemies within range. You can garrison units within for a quicker rate of fire, as well as for their protection and healing.

Wall Gate



Hellenistic wall gate


Normally passable by allies, but enemies can also come through while allied units are keeping the gate open. Can be locked to prevent all passage.




Hellenistic dock


Trains ships. Resource dropsite for food. Research ship armor improvements.




Hellenistic market


Trains trader. Research trader armor improvements.




Hellenistic barracks


Trains all available Citizen Soldiers. You can also garrison units inside for their protection and healing. Research military improvements for infantry and cavalry.





Hellenistic fortress


Trains siege weapons, champions and heroes (with a few exceptions). Fires at nearby enemies, garrison units within for a quicker rate of fire, as well as for their protection and healing. Research improvements to siege equipment and sometimes improvements to soldiers.
