- Atmospheric Evaporator
Atmospheric Evaporators extract water from the air and soil of the planet. The better the water content of the planet, the more they produce. However, because they sap so much water from the environment, you can only have two per planet. Otherwise the planet would become a dead rock.
- Planetary Command Center
"Houses the central government for your empire. This is your "flag in the ground" that lets everyone know you've staked your claim to a planet. It provides some basic resources and and storage for those resources both of which increase with the level of this building. The planetary command also provides some critical reports on your planetary activities such as total resource production and total resource storage for the planet it's constructed on." in-game description
The stockpile is an advanced building that provides storage while allowing you to build your resource buildings higher than level 20 on the planet that contains the stockpile. For every 3 levels of the stockpile, you can build your resource buildings 1 level higher than 20. With a level 30 University, resource buildings can be further upgraded to level 30.
- Waste Exchanger
The Waste Exchanger is a combination of a waste recycling center, waste sequestration well, and a waste treatment center. It tears apart waste at a molecular level and recombines it into useful resources.
- Waste Recycling Center
The Waste Recycling Center allows you to manually convert batches of waste into energy, ore and water. The more waste you convert, the longer it will take to make the resources you want. The higher the level of the building the more waste can be converted in one process. You can also spend a small amount of Essentia to convert the waste instantly.
- Waste Treatment Center
The Waste Treatment Center allows you to convert waste in to ore, water, and energy. The higher the building the more waste can be converted.
- Water Production Plant
The Water Production Plant converts energy and ore into water. This is especially useful on planets with low or no concentrations of water. A higher building level means more resources are converted.
- Water Purification Plant
The Water Purification Plant takes water from the planet and purifies it for drinking. The higher the building level the more water it can purify.
- Water Reclamation Facility
The Water Reclamation Facility converts waste into water. A higher building level means more resources are converted.
- Water Storage Tank
The Water Storage Tank stores the water you've collected. A higher building level allows more water to be stored. Base storage is 1000 + 4% per environmental affinity point.
