Buildings that offer goods and services, as well as purchasable housing are created when a node reaches village stage.[2]

Node buildings

Node layout and style

Alpha-1 - Layout de un nodo en etapa de Aldea.[3]

Incluso en la etapa 3, la etapa de desarrollo de aldea, el layout de un nodo es considerable; y parte de este layout incluye hogares estáticos dentro del nodo disponibles para su compra.[3]Steven Sharif

Estilo de arquitectura racial en un nodo en etapa aldea durante el Alpha-0. Influencia Empyrean (arriba). Influencia Kaelar (abajo).[4]

El layout y la arquitectura del área de desarrollo de un nodo es determinada por la raza más influyente del nodo. Por ejemplo, un nodo en etapa 3 donde la mayor contribución haya sido realizada por jugadores Py'Rai, desarrollará un estilo y arquitectura Py'Rai. La mayoría de los NPCs serán elfos Py’rai, y ofrecerán misiones dentro de la narrativa de su raza.[5]Margaret Krohn

La experiencia que cada jugador aporta a un nodo también toma en cuenta su raza y otros identificadores. Cuando un nodo avanza, la raza con la mayor contribución de experiencia determina el estilo y la cultura de ese nodo. Este cambio en estilo y cultura puede ocurrir en cualquier etapa del nodo. Por ejemplo, si un nodo avance a nivel 2 - la etapa de campamento, y 51% de toda la experiencia fue obtenida por jugadores Ren'Kai, ese nodo se convertirá en un nodo Ren'Kai de nivel 2. Si luego ese mismo nodo avanza a nivel 3 - la etapa de aldea, pero los Py'Rai contribuyeron con el 62% de toda la experiencia obtenida, el nodo se transformará en un nodo Py'Rai de nivel 3. Las influencias culturales traen más que sólo cambios en la narrativa y en la estética: también le dará beneficios a la cultura dominante de la zona de influencia de ese nodo.[6]Margaret Krohn

El layout de un nodo y su estilo es determinado por varios factores:[7]

Algunas partes son determinadas por el área en la que se encuentra, por su tipo y por la raza de mayor influencia; el resto es determinado por el alcalde.[7]Jeffrey Bard

Todos los nodos, ya sea que estén asociados a un castillo o no, poseen influencias culturales que se reflejan en los edificios y los NPCs presentes.[10]Steven Sharif

Existe una mecánica de desgaste que afecta a la experiencia y la influencia de un nodo, con el fin de evitar que una sola raza domine todo el mundo.[11]

Existe el desgaste y ese desgaste en la experiencia y la influencia aumenta basado en el desempeño de la raza en el mundo. Así que si todos los nodos fuesen nodos orcos, su nivel de desgaste sería muy alto y se volvería muy difícil competir contra el establecimiento cultural de nuevos nodos, pues ellos tendrían más influencia sobre el mundo y la opinión popular estaría en su contra en aquellos nodos fuera de su control.[11]Steven Sharif

Racial influences

Alpha-1 Aldea node layout.[3]

What has kind of been unlocked is the ability to do things more dynamically and more procedurally so that when a node spawns there is the opportunity to have different layouts and have different buildings and have different architectures; and each node starts to feel like its own place, so it's not the same node over and over again. Now we've got a node that kind of evolves and changes depending on where it's at and what the environment is and what race has procced it.[12]Jeffrey Bard

Cultural influences bring more than just the aesthetic and storyline changes - benefits are granted to the dominant culture within that node's Zona de influencia.[13][6]

  • These benefits apply to citizens of the dominant culture but they also apply to mechanics of the node and can also be of benefit to members of other races.[13]
  • There is an attrition mechanic that affects experience and influence to curb a single race from dominating the entire world.[11]

There is an attrition and that attrition on experience and influence is heightened based on the performance of the race in the world. So if all these nodes are Orc nodes then their attrition rate is very high to compete with the cultural establishment of new nodes because they have more influence in the world and a popular opinion is against them in their outlying regions that they do not have influence in.[11]Steven Sharif

Constructible node buildings

Node governments decide the location and types of constructible node buildings to be constructed within sectors of a node.[16][17][18]

These are buildings that the mayor has agency over determining whether or not they should be a constructed project. Constructible buildings can be selected at open plots that are gained as the node advances. If they elect to begin construction of one of these types of buildings- one of which is the marketplace- it'll grant certain trade benefits as well as some stalls that the citizens may participate in.[19]Steven Sharif

When the building types are determined, the community will then need to bring resources into the node (using caravans) and come together to construct the buildings (via quests and the like).[16]

The government decides how to specialize their node. Once they choose certain things they won't be able to choose other things.[16]

Different governments may change the buildings within a node.[16]

And there could be regime change... If somebody doesn't like the fact that a market was built and they want to re-elect a new government next cycle, they can do so... and that market could be destroyed and a new building take its place.[16]

Pre-defined parameters limit the number of buildings at in-node locations.[17]

Unique node buildings

Each node type has a unique node building associated with it that can be activated at the Aldea stage of node advancement. The unique building plays a central role in the progress of civilization for a server.[21]

City hall

City hall is a government building within a node.[23]

We want the City Hall to be the place where big decisions are made for each Node. It should be where the “ruling class” comes together and decides what to do (these decisions can quickly make them the “old ruling class” too).

Mayors and node governments use City hall to visualize and control activities within their node. These capabilities will also be available via mobile/web inteface.[24]

Players can interact with the node board to get a list of its citizens.[25]

Freehold buildings

Freehold buildings can be placed on a freehold plot.[2][27]

Buildings will require blueprints and materials.[28]

  • Basements in freehold buildings are to be decided.[29]

Freehold buildings will not change in terms of footprint (within a specific tier of that building) but may increase in height.[30]

  • Certain buildings will have multiple tiers, with different footprint sizes. For example: Small, medium, large, to mansion-sized homes.[30]
    • A mansion sized home may occupy up to 50% of a freehold plot.[30]

Freehold building architecture is based on the blueprint for the building.[31]

  • Cosmetics can also be applied to a blueprint based on the type of building.[31]
  • Players are not locked into any particular race for freehold blueprints.[32]

The way we look at it is the freehold is your space so we want you to be able to make it look the way you want it to.[31]Jeffrey Bard

Freehold building placement

There may be a grid-based system that freehold owners can use to place items/props and buildings on their freehold plot.[33][34]

  • Players will need to manage how these are arranged to maximize adjacency bonuses.[34]

Depending on where your place you're freehold, you're gonna have different environmental tiles available to you and those will kind of enable or buff existing structures that you place in your Freehold... I don't know that we would put like fish farming just for a freehold that's on a river. What we would probably do is give you a buff to fishing in that area. That kind of a thing. So there'll be more buffs for existing things rather than necessarily a special buildings just for that area. But again we're not fully baked in on that system yet, so it's very possible though we end up going down that direction.[35]Jeffrey Bard

Naming buildings

Naves and Buildings will be able to be named. The custom name will appear as floating text when it is targeted.[36]

Destructible environments

Destructible castle.[37]

This is the castle siege destruction props. It's variable areas of exploded stuff. You can't completely destroy the castle or you wouldn't be able to get to the top of it.[37]Michael Bacon

Destructible environments will be a core element of how players interact with the world, in both Ashes of Creation Apocalypse and Ashes of Creation the MMORPG.[39]

We want destruction to be a very core element of how players make their way through the world.[39]Steven Sharif

  • Attackers may not be capable of destroying a node during a siege. Instead they may carry out precision attacks to disable specific service-oriented buildings within the node. These buildings can be targeted with siege weapons and bombs.[40]
  • Node buildings (including player housing) have hit points and can be damaged during sieges. If buildings suffer more than approximately 25% damage, any NPCs or services offered by that building will not be available until the building is repaired.[41]
  • If the node still exists after the siege has ended, citizens will need to obtain the resources needed to repair and rebuild any damaged infrastructure.[41][42]
    • Larger more advanced buildings will require more resources to repair them. In-node housing will likely require the least resources to repair.[43]
  • Player housing that is destroyed during a node siege can no longer be sold.[44]

There will be ways to repair destructible structures (such as walls and gates) and also repair (or re-craft) siege weapons that were damaged during sieges.[47]

  • This is a long term design goal that will not be present during Alpha-1.[47]

You could be more precision oriented in the decision to attack a city. Let's say it's a rival node that's trying to reach you know a node stage five or something and you want to disable their ability for the religious system to progress so you target the temple during the attack, or you want to disable their scholars academy from reaching a higher level so that your nodes can; or you want to disable multiple buildings that allow for experience and quests to be undertaken by its citizenship, which prevents them from keeping up in pace of experience gained with your node. These can be more precision oriented and don't have to effectualize an actual takeover of the node.[40]Steven Sharif
