Baffle's Guide for building a City - For dummies :-)

UPDATED VERSION AT : http://aowiki.net/City_Tradeskills

I found this old guide I wrote around AI release. Wanted share it here.
Some details like what skills are needed for each step is missing, but generally it should be quite ok.

The first thing you need to know is the difference between a :

Regular Building Structure
Advanced Building Structure

This have nothing to do with the QL of a building, but the type.

There are only 3 Advanced Structures :



Guard House

Regular Structures :

Grid House

Notum Mining Operations

Notum Silo

Landing Pad

Satellite Uplink

ECM Tower

Swimming Pool

Sidewalk Cafe

Sky Bar

The next thing you need to know is what QL building you want to make (Range: QL1 - QL300). The QL of a building is decided by one item used in the process : The Generic Organic Immunity System. A QL300 will give you a QL300 building, and a QL1 will give you a QL1 building. Simple and easy. You can buy them  in Bazzits shop in MMD, but he only sell max QL75, so if you want to make higher QL buildings, you need to get them elsewhere.

Now, the way to get higher QL Generic Organic Immunity System is to gather Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material. Alien Drop. These can be refined by using a Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer. The only problem is that clumps can turn into several (15?) types of items, so cross your fingers and hope for Kyr'Ozch Viral Serum. This is what you need to make a high QL Generic Organic Immunity System. You also need a Manteze Scout Nasal Membrane.  RK drop.  If you find a QL300 Clump you can (if you are lucky) refine a QL300 Kyr'Ozch Viral Serum that will end up in a QL300 Generic Organic Immunity System.

Clump QL = Generic Organic Immunity System QL = QL of the end product (Any building)

Making the Generic Organic Immunity System (from serum) :

Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer + Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material = Kyr'Ozch Viral Serum, hopefully(!) (4.5 x ql EE)

+ =

Advanced Bio-Comminutor + Manteze Scout Nasal Membrane = Membrane Pulp

+ =

Membrane Pulp + Kyr'Ozch Viral Serum = Generic Organic Immunity System (3.5 x Pharma)

+ =

Now, If your serum was QL300 you have a QL300 Generic Organic Immunity System and are ready to make a QL300 building.

To make any kind of building (regular or superior) you always need to make a Regular Building Structure. The QL of this structure is, as mentioned, decided by the QL of your Generic Organic Immunity System, and will also decide the the QL of the end product. You need to buy (Shop in MMD) Generic Volatile Nanobots, HSR Compressed Regenerating Bioplate (one per building structure) andBlueprint - Regular Building Structure (Reusable tool) to make a Regular Building Structure.

Regular Building Structure - The process :

Generic Volatile Nanobots + HSR Compressed Regenerating Bioplate = Strong Regenerating Bioplate

+ =  ***(Check post below for a cheaper way to make Strong Regenerating Bioplate)

Strong Regenerating Bioplate + Generic Organic Immunity System = Superior Bioplate

+ =

Blueprint - Regular Building Structure + Superior Bioplate = Regular Building Structure

+ =

Now you can make all of the regular bulidings. All you need is to buy a Floorplan  from the shop in MMD. (Only Regular building types).

Make your Regular Building : (example)

QL300 Regular Building Structure + Floorplan - Omni-Tek Swimming Pool = QL300 Omni-Tek Swimming Pool

Buildings is ready to be planted.

To make an Advanced Structure you need to upgrade your Regular Building Structure.

The items needed :

Drops on RK :
- Fertilized Giant Chirop Egg
- Slow Killing Poison
- Unrefined Notum Salt
Other items :
- Uncle Bazzit's Bio-Mechanical AI (From store in MMD)
- Regular Building Structure (described above)
Tools :
- Bio Communicator

Advanced Building Structure - The process : (QL300 HQ as an example)

Unrefined Notum Salt + Fertilized Giant Chirop Egg = Mutating Giant Chirop Egg

+  =

Slow Killing Poison + Mutating Giant Chirop Egg = Poisoned Giant Chirop Egg

+ =

Basic Bio Communicator + Poisoned Giant Chirop Egg = Mutating Bio-Pulp

+ =

Uncle Bazzit's Bio-Mechanical AI + Mutating Bio-Pulp = Bio Mechanical Computer

+ =

Bio Mechanical Computer + QL300 Regular building Structure = QL300 Superior Building Structure

+ =

Floorplan - Omni-Tek Large Organization Headquarters + Superior Building Structure = QL300 Large Omni-Tek Organization Headquarters

+ =

Be aware that there are 3 (!) types of HQs and Markeds (Floorplans) :
- Small
- Medium
- Large

QL 1-100 = Small
QL 101-200 = Medium
QL 201-300 = Large

Be sure to pick the right one. :)
Using a QL300 Advanced Structure on a Small HQ Floorplan is NOT a good idea.

Also note that Floorplans are NONDROP.

If something is confusing here, poke me, and I'll correct it.

New way of making strong regenerating bioplate

Kill Stalkers in the north part of Upper Stret East Bank (Stalkers, not striker stalkers or mist stalkers etc), you get Stalker Carapace

- Use a neutron displacer on the carapace and you get Non-regenerating bioplate.

+ =

- Kill Rollerat Queens for Rollerrat Queen Blood and use bio-communicator on it to produce Rollerrat Queen Erythrocyte

+ =

- Use Rollerrat Queen Erythrocyte on Non-regenerating bioplate to make a Strong Regenerating Bioplate

+ =

Saves you the money of buying HSR bioplate + volatile nanobots (which costs about 3.7mil).
About droprate, I went up there and killed 6 stalkers, got 2 carapaces.

This guide is based on information from this forum (ai.shadow-realm.org), other forums/people and my own experience building cities. The goal was to make a guide that was easy for everyone to understand. Thanks to all the people who spent a lot of time finding all the items and figuring out the steps.

AWESOME! Given I happen to be a dummy when it comes to tradeskills, and soon I wish to build a city, this will come in handy!

[size=10]Hi, I own a Dino Stegazord, it has a big laser I like to shoot things with.[/size]


I've been the primary consultant/tradeskiller in the construction of 3 complete cities now, and I still don't have all this down...thanks for the great reference !!


Awsome! This should be made sticky! :D


Fantastic guide, even I could follow it, thank you ^^


Great Guide!  Sticky!

Just need to add Sky bar in the list of other buildings and fix a small typo on 'Market'.


Wow this sorta reminds me of sim city .......
