Here is another question...

Do you think they will build.. or will they just pop up out of the ground?

Maybe I am stubborn but I dont really think the buildings will only be a little like sim city and more like C&C.

You need so many buildings to have so many people living there. I think youll need certain buildings for like certain UFO upgrades or to make tanks and such.

The most important function of a building is its ability to have things put inside it.
The second most important function of a building is the ability to arbitrarily put things on top of it.

If there is a way to get a creature onto the roof of a tower- unable to get down, I am going to find a way to do it.

Upgrades? Stat boosts? Sure, but they can't just sit around... There will be no toleration of lazy buildings! They have to be fun!

Well, in the gameplay videos we've had so far, it looks like you just build the building and drop it in place.  At least that's how it looks so far.

I hope you have to build them and what we saw was just a stand-in being an early demo.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

Barring a total rehaul, all buildings in the game will belong to one of the following categories:
  • Factory
  • Farm
  • Entertainment
  • Housing

Make of that what you will.

What about millitary or education? Or both in the case of a millitary labratory.

Yes. A school is a child farm. A military base is a death factory.

i reckon buildings wont do much but each building will have a use (mostly for more animals to live in)
