Buildings Panel is a graphical representation of your village and buildings on it. In this panel you can click in different places to add buildings to Buildings Queue. You can easily place new buildings in Building site or click each existing building or resource mine to upgrade. In this manual we are going to cover the details of every feature in Buildings Panel.
Buildings Panel: Placing New Buildings
Placing new buildings in your village is very easy; just click one of the Building Sites and a context menu with all available buildings will appear:
In this menu you will see all available buildings that you can choose to place grouped by three categories: Infrastructure, Military and Resources. For example, let´s say you want to build Residence. Just click Residence icon and it will be placed in the Building Site and added to Buildings Queue:
Something wonderful happened!! As you may know Residence has Main Building level 5 as prerequisite. This prerequisite is not met in the village yet, it only has Main Building level 3. So TCommander Bot detected that this prerequisite is not met and it added all Main Buildings upgrades up to level 5 automatically. (See image above)
You just added Residence and 2 Main Building upgrades with only 2 clicks WOW!!
Now… what if you wanted to place different building that its prerequisites buildings are not placed in village, not even level 1? For example, Trade Office which has Marketplace level 20 and Stable Level 10 as prerequisite. But Stable also has Academy and Smithy as prerequisite buildings, and Academy also has other buildings as prerequisite. Let´s see the entire operation in action.
In the following animation you will see how easy this is done: placing Trade Office and 41 prerequisite building upgrades to Buildings Queue with only 5 clicks.
All those buildings upgrades will be added in “Buildings Queue” in the correct order automatically to meet each building prerequisite.
In the moment you first place Trade Office you are able to move the mouse to place every prerequisite building in the desired Building Site. Prerequisite Buildings Indicator will appear in the upper left corner indicating the current prerequisite building that is being placed:
“Prerequisite Buildings Indicator” is divided by two sections, left side and right side. In the left side is a big icon of the current building that you are placing, Trade Office, you can also see its name in the header of the indicator. In the right side is a list of all prerequisite buildings (with smaller icons) that you need to place. And a red flashing square around the current prerequisite building that you are moving with mouse to be placed in Building Site. Once you place any prerequisite building, the red square will shift to be around next prerequisite building indicating that you are now moving another prerequisite building to be placed.
Also, if during placing prerequisite buildings you change your mind and decide that you don’t want to do it. You can cancel placing buildings operation by clicking the upper right corner “Cancel placing buildings” button:
And all your actions will be rolled back: all the buildings that you have been placing will be removed from buildings panel and from “Buildings Queue” automatically.
Buildings Panel: Upgrading Buildings
To upgrade an existing building is very simple. Just click its icon and a new level upgrade will be added to the Buildings Queue.
You may notice the building has 2 numbers on it. The bigger white circle number is the current level of the building, and the smaller light blue circle number is the maximum level upgrade that you have added to Buildings Queue, which means that you have added two upgrades: upgrade level 4 and upgrade level 5. When this light blue circle becomes light red, it means you reached the maximum level you can upgrade the current building (for main building, maximum level is 20).
In the moment that you put the mouse over the building icon, 2 green arrow icons appear: up and down. You can use up button to also increase/add new level upgrade or use down button to decrease/remove one level upgrade from Buildings Queue.
Buildings Panel: Upgrading Resource Mines
You can click Resources Tab to watch the resources mine graphical representation:
To upgrade a resource mine you only need to click a white circle and this upgrade will be added to Buildings Queue. Also you when you put the mouse over any white circle, 2 green arrow icons appear: up and down to add mine upgrade or remove mine upgrades from “Buildings Queue” respectively:
Also you can add multiple resource mines upgrades at once by using the “One Click Constructions Panel” which is in the right side of Buildings Tab:
For example, there you can click one icon to add upgrades for all mines to level 6, or click another one to add all clay pits to level 10, etc. With only 1 click you can add many resource mines upgrades to “Buildings Queue” at once. WOW!! So cool!!
