Since the dawn of time, buildings have been the foundations of your account because they provide you with vital infrastructure. Most are requirements for further buildings, research, ships or defensive structures, without which it's not possible to make headway. The buildings are classified into two groups, Resources and Facilities. Resources include mines, storages, and energy producers; all remaining structures are classed as Facilities. Within Facilities there is also a small divide because some can only be built on a planet and others on a moon.

Natural Resources

There are three different resources that can be produced in OGame: Metal, Crystal and Deuterium. Without any upgrading, the Metal and Crystal Mine have a base production of 30 units of Metal and 15 units of Crystal (per hour). Deuterium does not have a base production. To get more out of the mines and the synthesizer, they have to be upgraded. In doing, so you will need more energy to power them. This energy can be produced in several different ways. The easiest method, and only option at the beginning, is the Solar Plant. Later on, the options of Solar Satellites (located in the Shipyard) and the Fusion Reactor (located in Facilities) are available. You are not able to produce an unlimited amount of resources due to a maximum capacity of the storages. Storages will be needed shortly to accommodate the excess production.


Construction Availability

Facilities are buildings that have no bearing on the resource production but are important for building ships or researching new technologies. As already mentioned, some facilities are only possible on the planet or on the moon. Typical moon buildings are the Lunar Base, the Jump Gate and the Sensor Phalanx. Buildings available only to the planet are the Research Lab, the Alliance Depot, the Missile Silo, the Nanite Factory, and the Terraformer. The Robotics Factory and the Shipyard are the only buildings that can be constructed on both moons and planets.

Resources

Resources and Energy are produced by the following buildings:

Metal Mine
Metal is the main resource for conducting research and the construction of buildings, ships, and defensive units. Exceptions are Solar Satellites, Espionage Probes, Energy Technology, Hyperspace Technology, Computer Technology and Graviton Technology. If you do not have a Metal Mine yet, you will be producing 30 units per hour (in normal universes). In speed universes the basic amount is higher, depending on the speed factor.
Metal Mine
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Crystal Mine
Crystal is the main resource for electronic components and alloys. It is also crucial in conducting research and construction of buildings, ships and defensive structures. Exceptions are Rocket Launchers, Metal Storages, Combustion Drive, Graviton Technology, and Armour Technology. If there is no crystal mine on a planet, a base amount of 15 units per hour will be produced and in speed universes correspondingly more.
Crystal Mine
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Deuterium Synthesizer

Deuterium is a heavy isotope of hydrogen and not very abundant. It is predominantly used as fuel but it is also needed for some types of research and the construction of some ships, defense, and buildings. Contrary to metal and crystal, there is no base amount produced without a synthesizer.

The amount produced per hour depends on the temperature of the planet. The colder the planet, the more deuterium will be produced.
Deuterium Synthesizer
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Solar Plant

Each mine requires energy to function, which is produced primarily by the Solar Plant.

Each system has slots 1 through 15; the closer to slot 1, the higher the output of the Solar Plant.
Solar Plant
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Fusion Reactor
This reactor is also used for energy production. The energy is generated by the fusion of two deuterium atoms into one helium atom; consequently deuterium will be consumed by the reactor. The requirements to build such an electricity station are Energy Technology level 3 and a Level 5 Deuterium Synthesizer on the relative planet. The higher the level of Energy Research, the more energy will be produced.
Fusion Reactor
Requirements:
Deuterium Synthesizer 5
Energy Technology 3
 
 
 
 

Metal Storage
This storage facility is used to store Metal. If the storage is full, production will be stopped. Only 10,000 units of Metal can be stored without the level one building.
Metal Storage
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Crystal Storage
This facility is required to continue the Crystal production. If it is full the production will be stopped. Without a storage, only 10,000 units of Crystal can be stored.
Crystal Storage
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Deuterium Tank
Like the storages the Deuterium Tank is required to allow further production. Without this tank, only 10,000 units of Deuterium can be stored.
Deuterium Tank
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Planet Facilities

These act as requirements for other buildings, research, ships, or defensive structures.

Robotics Factory

With the help of the Robotics Factory, buildings can be upgraded faster. It has no influence on the construction speed of ships or defensive structures. It can be built both on planets and moons and has no requirements for its construction.

The Robotics Factory is a requirement for the Shipyard and the Nanite Factory.
Robotics Factory
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Shipyard
This facility is necessary for the construction of both ships and defensive units, with some requiring a certain level of the shipyard first. Upgrading this facility will also decrease the production time for these units. To build/upgrade the shipyard, you need Robotics Factory Level 2 and no ships or defense in the respective construction queue of the planet or moon.
Shipyard
Requirements:
Robotics Factory 2
 
 
 
 
 

Research Lab
This is necessary to research new technologies. The higher the level, the more technologies will be activated and the shorter the research time will be. The Research Lab, which can be built without any requirements, affects the whole account. As soon as a lab is in the construction queue, you will not be able to research on another planet and if a research is started, you will not be able to build a lab anywhere.
Research Lab
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Alliance Depot
With this facility, it is possible to support holding fleets with deuterium via support rockets. Higher levels will allow friendly fleets to remain in orbit longer. The construction on the moon is not possible, but orbiting fleets will be supported by the planet with fuel. There are no requirements for its construction.
Alliance Depot
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Missile Silo
The Missile Silo is used to build Anti-Ballistic Missiles (level 2) and Interplanetary Missiles (level 4). Construction on the moon isn't possible, but the planet's Anti-Ballistic Missiles will be used (like with the Alliance Depot). The deconstruction of a silo is only possible when it is empty. It is possible to either launch the missiles or to deconstruct them. Shipyard level 1 is the only requirement. The Missile Silo can store 5 Interplanetary Missiles or 10 Anti-Ballistic per level.
Missile Silo
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Nanite Factory
This halves the construction time of ships, defensive structures, and buildings. Its requirements are Computer Technology level 10 and Robotics Factory level 10. In addition, the Terraformer needs Nanite Factory 1 as requirement. If the Nanite Factory is under construction, no ships, defensive structures, or buildings can be built on the respective planet and vice versa. The factory is not available on the moon.
Nanite Factory
Requirements:
Robotics Factory 10
Computer Technology 10
 
 
 
 

Terraformer
The Terraformer is needed to expand nearly developed planets. 5 free fields are added per level, plus an additional field every 2 levels, but you need energy for the construction. The requirements for the facility are the Nanite Factory level 1 and Energy Technology level 12. Building a terraformer on the moon is not possible, instead there is the Lunar Base. This building cannot be torn down.
Terraformer
Requirements:
Nanite Factory 1
Energy Technology 12
 
 
 
 

Space Dock
The Space Dock offers you the chance to repair ships that have become a wreckage through the course of a battle on your planet. This has a maximum repair time of 12 hours, yet it will take at least 30 minutes before the ships can be put into service. From the time a wreckage is created there is 3 days to commence with the repairs.The repaired ships then have to actively be placed back in service once the repair is completed. If this does not happen, they will automatically go back into service after 3 days pass.
Space Dock
Requirements:
Robotics Factory 2
Shipyard 2
 
 
 
 

Moon Facilities

Beside Robotics Factory and Shipyard, Moon Facilities also offers:

Lunar Base
This structure can only be built on a moon. It is necessary to get more building slots, since a moon consists of only one field at the beginning. 3 further fields are developed per Lunar Base level. Lunar Base level 1 is a requirement for the Sensor Phalanx and the Jump Gate.
Lunar Base
Requirements:
None
 
 
 
 
 

Sensor Phalanx
This facility can, like the Lunar Base, only be built on a moon. Lunar base level 1 is the only requirement. Using the phalanx, you are able to see the fleet movements on other planets. A scan costs 5,000 units of deuterium. The sensor range increases with every level of the building.
Sensor Phalanx
Requirements:
Lunar Base 1
 
 
 
 
 

Jump Gate
The Jump Gate can also only be built on a moon. It is utilized to instantaneously send fleets from one moon to another. After a jump, the start Gate and target Gate have to cool down for one hour before they can be used again. The requirements for its construction are Lunar Base level 1 and Hyperspace Technology level 7. It is not possible to send resources via the Jump Gate. The cooldown time will be reduced for each level of Jumpgate up to level 15. The shortest possible cooldown time is 10 minutes/universe speed.
Jump Gate
Requirements:
Lunar Base 1
Hyperspace Technology 7
