In this Ixion Building Guide, we'll tell you how Building works, how to unlock more Buildings, and how Specialization can get you production bonuses!

How to Build in Ixion

Every Ixion Building requires a Workshop, the Building blueprint unlocked, the resources to place the Building, Road access to the Building site, and the resources needed to construct it. Most buildings also have arrows indicating where they need to be connected to a Road. Nearly every Building requires Road access.

Placing the correct Buildings in the Tiqqun is important. Each Sector will need housing for its Workers and Non-Workers, storage for resources, an Infirmary for Health, and Batteries to supply backup power. You'll also need to ensure that there are enough Stability-enhancing Buildings to keep a Sector's population from going on Strike.

How to Unlock More Buildings in Ixion

You can unlock more Buildings in Ixion with Research in the Tech Tree. Most items on the Tech Tree have several sub-items that can be Researched to provide bonuses for the associated Building.

How to Get More Space for Buildings in Ixion

You can get more space to Build in Ixion by opening up new Sectors. Be careful, though -- each newly-opened Sector will slightly increase the ongoing damage to Hull Integrity. Don't open up new Sectors unless you actually intend to Build in them!


How Building Specialization Works in Ixion

Specialization is a Building mechanic in Ixion that grants bonuses to a Sector if you have enough Buildings of the same class. Buildings have icons for either Space, Industry, Food, or Population. This mechanic encourages you to dedicate each Sector to a specific purpose.

Here are some examples of Specializations:

  • Food - Tier 1
    • Food production Buildings require 10% less Water
    • Buildings produce 30% more Waste
  • Industry - Tier 1
    • Batteries last 20% longer
  • Space - Tier 1
    • Docking Bays load and unload resources 30% faster
    • Hull repair is 10% more efficient

You'll spend most of Chapter 1 confined to Sector 1, but that will gradually change as you advance through the campaign. As you expand to new Sectors, carefully consider how you might want to Specialize each Sector.
