Crystal Hut


If you are a member of the city, you can build a Crystal Hut near a Crystal Patch and then your Golems will be able to gather Crystal for you. You can only build one Crystal Hut near each Crystal Patch. Each Crystal Hut has a limited storage capacity of Crystal, so you will have to go around and collect your Crystal every once in a while. Once a Hut is at capacity, the Golems will stop working. The max capacity can be increased by investing Crystal at the Hut.

The number of players using a given Crystal Patch will determine the max number of Golems that can work at each Crystal Hut. You can see from the info below that Crystal Patches are optimized when 2 players are drawing Crystal from them.

When a Crystal Patch only has 1 Hut nearby, you can have 3 Golems working there
When a Crystal Patch has 2 Huts nearby, you can have 5 Golems at each hut
3 Huts nearby = 4 Golems at each Hut
4 Huts = 2 Golems at each Hut
5 Huts = 1 Golem at each Hut

To build a Crystal Hut, make sure your character is standing near a Crystal Patch and then go to "Menu" >> "Create" >> "Build" >> "Crystal Hut." To build more than one Crystal Hut, you will need to use a Research Lab to unlock the technology. Also, each additional Crystal Hut requires more resources to build.

Resources Needed:
1st Crystal Hut - 3 Crude Oil
2nd Crystal Hut - 12 Crude Oil, 200 Crystal
3rd Crystal Hut - 48 Crude Oil, 400 Crystal
4th Crystal Hut - 192 Crude Oil, 600 Crystal
5th Crystal Hut - 768 Crude Oil, 800 Crystal

You can Raid other player's Crystal Huts by tapping the Hut and selecting "Raid." If you are successful, you will get 50% of the Crystal that the Hut was storing. However, if your Raid is interrupted you will not be able to try again for 24 hours, so make sure that you clear out any enemies that might be nearby.

Players can set a Gold price per unit on their Crystal Huts. This allows others players to buy crystal directly from your Hut. Anyone not an enemy with you can collect half of the crystal available. Individual Huts can be set private like Stone/Iron Mines.
