Buildings are built inside your camp where your survivors live. They can send you into missions, unlock new buildings, produce resources required to upgrade your buildings and survivors, upgrade your equipment, heal injured survivors, help you find more survivors, and stock resources.

To be able to advance in the game the camp needs to develop with new and upgraded buildings. Each upgrade will spend some real time and supplies (all costs on this page are “canned goods” instead of XP. XP is used for Survivor and Weapon upgrades). Upgrades may also be done instantly with Gold; either immediately without spending any supplies, or later with a reduced payment of gold.

During upgrade there will be a timer showing the remaining delay. It’s only possible to upgrade one building at a time. Normally you can’t use a facility if it’s upgrading nor upgrade while it’s in use (e.g. training in camp or healing in hospital). The Mission Car is an exception, you will be able to go on missions also during car upgrade.

There is a certain amount of strategy in the choice of how to spend resources and what to upgrade first, but the game advancement in itself hints what you need by blocking and unlocking upgrades. The core building is your Council trailer, next ones with priority:

  1. Training grounds
  2. Workshop
  3. Farm plots
  4. Car
  5. Hospital
  6. Others
  7. Don’t upgrade Radio tent, it’s useless.

 

When selecting a building you can see info, upgrade or interact (e.g. harvest supplies or visit hospital). It’s also possible to drag the building freely on the map. There is no charge for such movement but you can cancel it by pressing the cross.

Player Level

You will automatically advance to the next Player Level when you have reached enough Building Points (BP) on the current level. Player level is visible in a circle on the top left corner icon in Camp, tapping it will also show the details on current and needed BP.

Upgrade buildings in the Camp to increase BP at amounts specified in Building tables on this page (not listed in the game but you can calculate it by subtracting “BP before upgrade” from “BP when completed”). Certain player level is required for upgrading your Council (see Council table), in turn unlocking other building upgrades.

Radio

Radio Tent

Send a call out for more survivors here. Calls can be made with 1, 5, or 15 radios, with an increase in star value to the summoned survivor.The level of the radio tent determines the summoned survivor’s starting level and their maximum level. When you summon survivors, the number of stars determine the number of levels you can upgrade your survivor, 2 levels for each star. The Radio Tent level is the only thing that effects survivor call min/max level.

Notes

A new version of the radio calls is being worked on. I think you’ll like it. Details to follow.
Not yet in 1.6. Just wanted to let you know that we know you guys feel like the radio calls could be improved, and we’re now working on it. OldGoth Moderator, Staff February 9
From http://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/discussion/3183/radio-tent-seriously/p1

Is there a maximum number of radio you can have? There is a hard limit, but it’s very high indeed; 999 999. So unfortunately you won’t be able to get to a million phones.

High level players agree that you should only use 15 calls, and to wait as long as you can before doing them, ideally when your tent is at the maximum level, or at least level 5.

Hospital

Hospital

Survivors hurt during missions come here to heal. Time is reduced by increasing hospital level and extra slots for survivors are added at certain level upgrades.

The level of your mission car determines how much Gas you can spend in missions and how much Gas you can store.

Note: Normally you can’t use a facility if it’s upgrading nor upgrade while it’s in use (e.g. training in camp or healing in hospital). The car is an exception, you will be able to go on missions also during car upgrade.

Campfire

Campfire

The campfire can’t be upgraded and it serves only to tell information about the current story mission.

Memorial

Memorial

The memorial is unlocked at council level 4 and shows information about survivor(s) you lost in deadly missions. There seems to be no game-advancing benefit of this building, apart from a possible amount of BP when building it. In this update of the game it’s not available.

Trash

Junk

This is not actual buildings, but bushes or wrecks found in your camp initially. You may clear it to make room for your buildings or for aesthetic reasons.

Clearing the area will cost you Supplies (such as 100 or 6500, up to 15k) and some time (e.g. 10s). There seems to be no BP advantage (at least not for small cost clearing).

Outpost

Outpost

Allows you to do an Outpost Raid and also to be raided by other players. You can gain or lose influence in raid, at some point you can also gain or lose Trade Goods. The Outpost building is where you can set your defenders and change your Outpost Configurations for defense.

** LV3 outpost allows you to individually place your survivors and set them on offense, defense, or stationary modes. It also give the option to change defenders

Higher level map allow to place more walkers on the map, the walkers have to be captured & upgraded in the walker Pit.

Walker Pit

Walker Pit

The walker pit is located just outside the camp walls and is used to capture walkers that will defend your outpost. Technically the walker pit does not come from the same source as the camp walkers. The initial amount available is 4 normal walkers of level 1 and you can use Trade Goods or Gold to increase both amount and level of them.

The level of the Walker Pit itself does not directly affect the walkers, but instead how many and the level it can hold. Note that the value in the table below are the maximum walkers, you need to upgrade or capture separately to reach that max.

The Outpost building level decides which maps are available, the map selected defines how many walkers you can have in the outpost defense. To make use of the higher amount of walkers a suitable map needs to be chosen too.
