To begin construction you must:
- Be standing still in a city
- Be standing adjacent and to the left, or above, where you wish the
facility to be
- Have at least one Builder NPC at your location (maximum of 10)
- Have sufficient credits (yourself or your faction)
- Have materials for construction, owned by you or your faction,
located in a ship, vehicle or facility (only: Warehouse, Hangar, Landing Pad, Factory, Mine, Recycling Plant, Sith Temple, Jedi Praxeum, Silo, Alazhi Farm, Bacta Refinement Facility, Dry Dock, Naval Shipyard, Port, Starport, Lab)
that is in the city
- If you are going to be using faction raw materials, you need "Assign &
Merge Raw Materials" privilege.
- Be the owner, commander, pilot or on the crewlist of the ship,
vehicle or facility containing the materials
- Have 'Manage Facilities' level 2 or greater, if building for your
- Be the owner of the city or have build permissions from the owner
You may build as many facilities as you like. Once construction has
started you are free to move around, leave the city or start building
Submitting a request to
build requires you to be standing still in the city you wish to build in
and to enter the following data:
- Facility Type
Once permission is granted by the city owner you may start construction
of the facility.
Some facilities have
more than one image that you will have to choose from when building. In
the future certain planets, or planets with certain stats, will have
different facility images. Example: a planet with a low civilisation
level might have a hut instead of a duracrete personal residence.
Every facility, except for 1x1 Wall, 1x1 Trench, 20x20 Imperial Palace, 1x1 Gate, 1x5 Wall, 1x10 Wall, 1x19 Wall, 20x20 B`omarr monastery, 20x20 Wildlife Preserve, must have roads
on at least two sides in order to separate it from
other facilities. Where two sides of roads meet the corner piece between
them will be made a road if there is no facility present there. The
corner peices are optional however, so having a facility occupying one
or more of them will not block construction. At this time roads provide
no bonuses and have no influence on anything other than facility
Roads are free to build, they cost nothing and require no materials, and
are built instantly. A piece of road may be destroyed if the facilities
it is adjacent to has roads on at least two other sides. They can be
destroyed by being in the city and going to Production > Facility
Construction > Roads.
The NPCs who will build the
facility are selected from NPCs of the type Builder who are at your
location, they don't need to be in your party. The NPC foreman will
report to you at critical points in the construction process. If
builders are working on a facility you will be unable to start
construction on another facility if it will occupy the area in which
they are located. Once construction has started you do not need to stay
with the NPCs, they will continue to work on their own. Facilities can
appear to be under construction while having no builders if those
builders have high stealth skills.
To build in a city you, or your faction, must be the owner. If you wish to
build for your faction they must be the owner, if you wish to build for
yourself you must be the owner.
Nothing bigger than 5x5
Nothing bigger than 3x5 (except for: factory, hospital, mine, training
academy, alazhi farm, Command Centre, walls)
Cities built in caves have unbuildable areas due to
stalactites/stalagmites, these are represented on the map by a
semi-transparent red square.
- May not exceed 3x5 in size (except for Mines)
- NONE of the following: KDY V150, LNR 1, LNR 2, Shield Generator and
The owner of the facility, or a member of
the faction owning the facility with appropriate privileges, may abort
construction of a facility at any time, from any location. When aborting
from the Facility Construction interface in the city there is the option
to return unused materials to a ship, vehicle or facility (of type:
warehouse, hangar, landing pad, factory, mine, recycling plant, silo).
Only one may be selected. If the materials exceed the Weight/Volume
Capacity of the entity the materials that did not fit will be lost. When
construction is aborted the roads built are not removed.
Time to Abort = (Time done building * 1.25) + 6 hours
Materials Returned = Percentage Left to Complete - 10%
Anything that exists within the construction
site will be moved to your location, or not, according to the following
rules. This only applies to when construction is beginning.
PCs & NPCs:
Builder NPCs who are actively building a facility will not be moved
Ships & Vehicles:
Are not moved if the pilot is an active player and set as the active
An entity currently moving through the area of the construction site
will block construction. Entities who will be moving through the
construction site but who are not yet within the area will have their
Will block construction until they have descended, at which point they
will fall under the rules regarding Ships & Vehicles
When an NPC working on a construction project is
arrested, killed or otherwise removed from the project the time to
complete the project is recalculated. If all NPCs on a project are no
longer present then construction is halted and the owner of the facility
is informed. They, or the individual who started the construction, must
return to the construction site with more builder NPCs in order to
continue construction. Continuing construction is done from Position
You can also Pause and Resume construction remotely from the Facility
Management page, under "Under Construction".
When you have available NPC builders at your location,
and are above and/or to the left of a facility currently under
construction (not paused or aborted), you have the ability to add more
builders to the construction project to the maximum of
10builders. This can be performed from the Position > Party interface.
- HQ Facilities: Are automatically protected.
- Facility Income Facilities: Are set to 'Open To All'.
