The Distribution Center is a tier 2 storage building with greater density than the regular storage buildings. You can store all 4 basic resource types in a single distribution center. You may only have 2 distribution centers per planet.
The distribution center also has the ability to reserve specific types of resources for a small amount of time. For each level of the distribution center you may reserve 100,000 resources for 2 hours. After the timer expires the resources are dumped back into normal storage. However, as this building is built up it can store massive amounts of specific resources, making it much easier to save up for a specific build type. You can also release the resources back into storage at any time, making them available for your build.
Requires University Level 19
Playing Note: The basic concept of this building was a very sound one. However due to the relatively high maintenance costs and the moderately high build times this building tends to see moderate to low usage amongst the higher ranking empires. Also in general these building also do not provide enough planetary storage by themselves and you will still need a set of the basic 4 storage buildings to continue to upgrade these. The Interdimensional Rift may also be used, but if you are going to use that building at high levels there is almost no point at all in using this building.
