General Information

Buildings are vital structures used by players to refine gathered materials, craft equipment, and items, and improve item storage capacity

All major cities contain preexisting buildings, but players may also construct buildings in select locations if given permission

Player Islands and Guild Islands are the primary location to find player-made buildings

Buildings both preexisting and player-made may be owned by players

By default, a player-constructed building will be owned by the player who set down its building plans

Players may also abandon ownership of a building, allowing anyone in the vicinity to claim it

Island

Player Islands and Guild Islands are a player's personal piece of land where buildings, farms, houses, and pastures can be constructed. Ownership can be bought in any of the major cities in Albion and can be further upgraded by a tier system. Each tier offers more land to build on than the previous tier.

Access

Player Islands are only accessible to the owner-player and those the player allows to visit. Islands cannot be contested for ownership - it belongs solely to the player.

Usage Fee

The owner of a building may set an arbitrarily high usage fee, increasing the cost of any function of that building that requires Silver. This fee does not affect any use of the building that has no Silver cost, such as refining and crafting Tier 2 or lower items.

The formula to calculate the resulting fee for users is:

item value / 20 * tax rate %

example: crafting a T6 bag at a toolmaker with a 10% tax rate:

992 / 20 * 10 = 496s fee per craft

In addition to this, a separate fee Associate's Fee may be used in place of the usage fee if you are a known and approved associate of the building's owner.

Constructing a Building

Players may construct Buildings on sandy spots the player has build permission on. This is most likely to be the player's Player Island. Clicking on the build icon in the top right corner brings up the building tool, after paying an initial Silver cost, a placeholder graphic will appear representing a Building under construction. The player must then provide crafting materials to the Building in order to complete it.

Managing a Building

To manage a building, click on the building and select the character portrait. This will open a menu with various building management options which are explained below.

Property

This section of the building management view allows a player to see who owns the building and who built the building

Players may set the permissions of a building here

By checking "Building attackable", players will be able to attack the building

When the "Give Up" option is pressed, this will give up ownership rights to the building. It changes the Owner to "System" and may be claimed by any player. To undo this option, select "Claim"

Access Rights for players who may use the building are set here

Administration

This section of the building management view allows a player to manage the Silver for the building

Money (Earned Silver): This is the Silver that the building earned by player use

Building Fees (Associates): Sets the building fee usage percentage for the players who have Associates rights to the building (under the building's Access Rights)

Building Fees (Users): Sets the building fee usage percentage for all players who are not Associates

Renovation

This section of the building management view allows a player to make changes to the actual building

  • Repair: Pay Silver to repair the building
  • Upgrade: Upgrade the tier of the building using materials
  • Downgrade: Downgrade the building to the previous tier
  • Demolish: Demolishes the building, provides 90% of the materials used to create the building. Demolition of a building may be canceled for 1 minute after starting

Food Supply

This section of the building management view allows a player to feed the building

Many buildings use a Favorite Dish and will be found here. While any food may be used, the Favorite Dish will provide additional nutrition to that building

To feed the building, add the food here

The building owner may set a Silver reward here for any player who feeds the building

Players may see the reward per 1000 Nutrition added to the building and the Silver available to do so in this section
