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
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

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.
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.
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.
