Working and Upgrading Buildings

Each building that can be placed in your segment of the Capital will require a worker to run it. In order to gain more workers in your segment of the capital, you will need to upgrade your forum. In order to do this, you will need to spend resources like Wood or stone. Buildings that are placed in your area can also be upgraded to increase the benefits as well as the production rate of the buildings. This is done using resources such as Water, Fish, Wood and Stone etc. Buildings that produce goods will need to be connected to the forum via a road. Buildings that are not connected to the Forum will have an Icon over them with the following Icon.

Roads   In order to harvest from a building, it must be connected to the main city via a road. If you do not have your buildings connected by a road, no one will be able to harvest from them and the commodity will appear darkened.
