The Building Screen contains a list of available buildings with pictures and descriptions. It will say after the buildings name what level the building has currently been built to. The cost of building the next level, as well as the amount of time it will take are shown under the description. You can build the next level building by clicking on the Build or Upgrade to Level X text to the right of the building.
Bulidings can be cancelled by clicking the canel button next to the construction before construction is completed. All resources are returned to the planet's available resources.
Commander Only Edit
It will show a resource in Red if you do not have enough of that particular resource. It will also tell you how long you will have to wait at current mine production before you can build that structure.
Once one building is being built, you can put another in the Construction Queue by clicking the appropriate text.
In the Redesign Universes, there is a new layout for the Building Screen. The graphic for each of the buildings is shown on the bottom half of the screen, accompanied by their current level. Clicking a building causes an additional interface to slide up, showing the resources and production time needed to improve the building and showing insufficient resources in red. Also shown are the Techtree button (which opens a pop-up window displaying the prerequisites for that building in sequence), the Improve button (to increase the building's level) and the storage capacity (if applicable). Changes in the redesign universes are cosmetic, and the mechanics outlined above still apply.
