A neatly built downtown area of a city.

Buildings can be left independent and function just fine on their own, but there are advantages to making them into a city. Cities are formed when a capitol and a police station are built.

Cities allows the construction of banks, declaring of capitals, increased population migration, easier management and creation of city reports.

Jurisdiction

A city controls the jurisdiction area created by its capitol and police stations. Empires are blocked from constructing any buildings inside the jurisdiction of another empire's city.

The size of the jurisdiction depends on the police station building design used. The jurisdiction area of a city can be further extended by building more police stations.

City Control

When a capitol and a police station is built, all buildings inside the jurisdiction area will change ownership to that of the capitol building.

World Claim

When a world is claimed, all cities and buildings on the world will change ownership to that of the claim.

For more information, see the Claim page.

Morale

The morale of a city's population determines if population is immigrating or emigrating. When morale is zero or positive, population will try to immigrate into the city. When morale is negative, the population will emigrate out of the city.

For more information, see the City Morale page.

Abandonment Decay

Buildings and cities decay to remove unused and unwanted data from the game. This works differently in new-style cities.

For more information, read the City Abandonment and Decay pages.

Citizen DNA

A mix of glabrian citizens.

The DNA of a city's population may differ from the DNA of the indigenous population.

Citizens emerge from a city to greet visiting avatars and when they are loaded as officers, crew, troops and passengers. When citizens emerge, their DNA is determined as follows.

  • In a harsh environment, all citizens will have the citizen DNA of the city.
  • In a habitable environment, where the citizens are sexually compatible with the indigenous population, 15% of citizens will have the citizen DNA of the city, 25% of citizens will have the indigenous DNA, and the remaining 60% will be a combination of the citizen and indigenous DNA.
  • In a habitable environment, where the citizens are sexually incompatible with the indigenous population, all citizens will have the citizen DNA of the city. The city will then also get a -1 alien invader morale penalty.

The citizen DNA of a city is set to that of the avatar founding the city, it can however changed the following ways.

  • Citizen DNA of a city is changed when a citizen is added to a city that has a population of 0. Citizens unloaded, garrisoned, deserted, or lost in a city are added to the city's population.
  • Citizen DNA of a city is changed to the indigenous population DNA when the population of the city is reduced to zero. Only habitable worlds in the habitable orbit zone have an indigenous population.
