This article compares the cost of the most frequently used materials used by player when building a base or fort. This list can help players decide which building material is most cost effective. It does not list all Building Materials.

Calculation[edit | edit source]

The values in the list where calculated assuming the following:

  • All block types are fully upgraded. E.g. it does not list wood frames, only metal reinforced wood.
  • If there is more than one way to craft an item, the cheapest version is used.
  • The costs for a block do not include any forging fuels.
  • All forms of iron are listed as a number of units of iron. For example, one Forged Iron costs 10 units of iron, or upgrading a reinforced wooden wall to it's metal counterpart costs 10 units of iron.
  • Costs listed are for 100 blocks. To help put this in perspective, a 7x7x4 bunker with no roof requires 96 blocks.
