“And on the pedestal these words appear: ‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kinds: Look on my works, ye Mighty and despair!’ Nothing beside remains. – Percy Bysshe Shelly
The development of masonry led to a widespread use of stone in simple structures such as fortifications, but due to the weight and cumbersome nature of stone blocks, more complex structures had to be made of simpler materials. The need for the widespread use of more durable and permanent materials eventually became apparent, forcing ancient artisans to learn new techniques. The biggest problem to overcome was finding a stable way to span the distance between two upright columns or walls using stone blocks. To solve this problem, fundamental architectural elements such as the arch and vault evolved. These basic construction techniques allowed larger and more elaborate buildings to be created from stone and mortar. Many of the buildings erected by these early builders are still standing, a testament to the sound construction techniques employed in their construction.”
The point of Construction:
With each Construction upgrade, you decrease construction time of fortified units and buildings by 10%. Although this does not directly relate to your combat part of Evony, it’s an essential part of any civilization. People who can build things faster will make a large city more quickly. The large their city is, the higher chance they will be able to defend and attack with ease. It’s also useful not having to wait 65 hours to finish Walls level 9 or 43 hours to finish Town Hall level 10.
