Building system has undergone some changes compared to the first part of the game.
As before, building can be done only within markup grid. A special window in the corner of the screen shows how many resources you have for the selected construction. This is useful if you build a lot of repetitive elements, such as fences.
All buildings were redrawn from scratch and now have a more detailed design.
Also there will be a lot of new and interesting buildings that were not present in the first game. In fact, the whole progress line is new. This will not just be a repeat of the first part with improved graphics.
The building process doesn't go by itself anymore. As for all the work in the second part, to proceed the building you need to be close to the construction. The hero starts working with his hands to increase the percentage of done work. But don't worry, you won't have to work with your own hands for long. Soon enough you'll have an assistant who will work on the base while you travel the world, fight enemies and gather resources.
The building progress can be viewed by gradually appearing parts of the construction.
Also some buildings can be upgraded to the higher level. They will work faster and give the access to new recipes. For example, here is the first and the second level of tailor table.
