This Farthest Frontier Building and Tech Tree Guide will tell you how to upgrade Buildings and what you need to build them!

How Farthest Frontier Building Works

Farthest Frontier Building works much like you'd expect -- you select an item from the Building menu, place it in the game world, and wait for people to Build it.

Each Building requires the following:

  • Flat land
  • Resources for the Building (Wood, Stone, etc.)
  • Workers to erect the Building
  • In some cases, other Buildings must be built first.
  • Higher-Tier Buildings require you to upgrade your Town Hall (and possibly other Buildings, too.)

How to Upgrade a Building in Farthest Frontier

There are two ways to Upgrade Buildings in Farthest Frontier:

Advertisement

 
 
  • Have the Automatic Upgrade option on
  • Upgrade the Building manually by selecting the Building and pushing the button

You cannot Upgrade a Building unless you have built all of the Prerequisite Buildings and have all of the necessary resources on hand.

Farthest Frontier Building List and Tech Tree

This is a list of all of the Buildings we've found in the game so far, what it costs to Build them, whether or not they can be Upgraded, and what they do.

Keep in mind that many of these Buildings will not be available until you advance your Town Hall to the next Tier. If you need some help figuring that out, check out our Starter Guide to learn how to make it to Tier 2 from scratch.
