Let’s start #03 : Base building tutorial

This new tutorial teaches you how to build a base in Act of Aggression. It’s the next step to do once you’ve got your early economy rolling.

It consists in a series of buildings you have to construct to evolve, expand, upgrade your units …

To be efficient, you’ll have to organize your buildings, according to their specific deployment rules. 

i.e., when you click on a building’s icon such as Cartel’s Vehicles Bay (see opposite picture), a construction grid appears.

The Grid

The grid indicates where you can or cannot build.
Simply move the building’s ghost until every square on the grid turns green.
Press TAB to change its orientation.

At the beginning of the game, you’ll only be allowed to construct in a limited area around your HQ and refineries.

But you’ll be able to extend your territory throughout the game.

Some buildings also need to be connected to another. Like the Artillery Turret in the opposite picture.

Construction queue

You can also queue a list of buildings. This is useful when you need to fight away from your base.

Careful though, not to block your construction queue.

In case a resource is missing, the icon in the task bar on the bottom of the screen will display a feedback. It’s telling you the production/research can’t progress.

Simply click on the icon to cancel its construction. Get the matching requirements and order the construction again.

Here are the links to remind you of the first step Resources hunting and second step Refinery building

    I think everything typed made a lot of sense. However, think on this, what if
    you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your content is not solid.,
    however what if you added a post title to maybe get a person’s attention? I mean Let’s start 3 :
    Base building tutorial – Act of Aggression is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news titles to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more

    This game looks like it has great potential to revive my love for RTS..! I hope it will have an option to set up singleplayer games in “Skirmish” mode, oh how i love to spend hours on that 🙂

    Looks fantastic, keep on going strong Eugen Systems, i will support you for sure!!!
