Buildings may be built on landfill (or water in the case of oil platforms, the shipyard, dock and tactical lab).
They provide resources (Oil Rig, Metal Foundry, Wind Turbine, and Zynthium Refinery) , new hulls and armors (Naval Lab), weapons (Weapons Lab), build ships (Shipyard), and provide other services. Different buildings serve different purposes, and become more efficient at higher levels, opening up many more possibilities.

Storage has been calculated by subtracting the capacity of the warehouses from the total.
These buildings gather resources over time, and can be upgraded to increase productivity. The Oil Rig, Metal Foundry, Wind Turbine, and Zynthium Refinery produce Oil, Metal, Energy and Zynthium respectively.
Oil RigEditThe oil rig is the base structure used for the production of Oil. Oil is the most common resources, and therefore the least valuable. Oil is used most prominently in the research and construction of hulls and the upgrading of buildings , but is also used in every other build of a ship or building or weapon for your base. Oil is quickly produced by Oil Rigs at your base and by oil wells which can be commonly found at any level on the Map. Capturing an oil well gives your Oil Rigs an extra production bonus and can give you captured oil.

Metal FoundryEditMetal is the second rarest resource to Zynthium and has a wide variety of applications. It is prominently used in upgrading buildings and researching weapons and armor, but has many more applications.

Wind TurbineEditThe Wind Turbine is the base structure used for the production of Energy.
Energy is the second most common resource to Oil. Energy is often used in great amounts, and sees a wide array of applications. Wind Turbines generate Energy, and are tied with Oil Rigs for the highest resource production rate.

The Zynthium Refinery is the base structure used for the production of Zynthium. Zynthium is the rarest of all resources in Battle Pirates, meriting the small requirements building, upgrading, or researching has for it. On the Map, Zynthium deposits are fairly rare and generally appear at high levels only around Draconian Bases. Smaller Zynthium deposits occur at around the same frequency as Oil Wells, Wind Turbines, and Metal Deposits.

WarehouseEditThe warehouse helps determine the maximum amount of each kind of resource the player may store at one time.
As the number of warehouses and their levels increase, the maximum amount of resources that can be held are increased as well.
The storage in the table below is per resource type. The maximum number of warehouses depends on the level of your Outpost.
When your base is attacked, for each Warehouse destroyed you lose up to 10% of your resources on hand to the assaulting player. This also depends on the maximum storage capacity of the attacking fleet. When a fleet attacks a base it can store up to 500% of its regular capacity. As the appearance of the amount of resources you have depends on the percentage of resources currently held in the warehouses, the higher level your warehouses are, the greater the amount of resources required to create the same look. A base with five complete warehouses, all at level 10, can hold nearly 160M resources: that is 39.7M of each of the four resource types!

Naval buildings along with your outpost are the most important buildings, to increase your wealth and amount of ships. With all your naval buildings upgraded you can hold more weight per fleet, and better armor.
The War Academy, formerly known as the Pirate Academy, allows the building of multiple fleets. Upon each upgrade of the Pirate War Academy, the space for one more fleet will be added to the Dock, and will allow more ships to be put on the map at any one time. War Academy also allows you to view recent attacks on your base by using the Playback feature. As of Aug. 8, 2013, you can now upgrade War Academy to an 11 and a 12. To go to an 11 it takes 5.75 days for the upgrade.

- By popular demand, two Levels have been added to the War Academy (Aug. 2013), allowing for two additional Fleet spots in your Dock!
- how long do the next 2 upgrades take? From a level 10 to an 11 it takes 5.75 days.
DockEditThe Dock acts as the command center for all of a player's fleets. From the Dock, a player may make new fleets, change old fleets, and launch finished fleets. Players may also name their fleets, giving them an easy way to identify them while on the map.
The Dock also acts as a center for repairing fleets that have been damaged in battle, and repair time varies with damage. One minute of repair time fixes approximately 60 armor (health) points. Each upgrade to your dock will result in the increase in max weight (tons) allowed per fleet. Larger, more advanced fleets have repair times from 10 to 15 hours. Subs are the slowest to repair of any hiull type. A fleet of Spectres could take 18 hrs to repair!
In the later stages of the game it becomes the most important building and should be kept safe all the time. When destroyed you aren't able to launch fleets or repair them. Essentially, you cannot play while it is repairing. Level 9 dock takes 2 hours to repair, a level 10 dock 4.5 hours or generally 8 coins if you want to fix it instantly.

The Shipyard allows a player to build ships with a variety of hulls, armors, and weapons. It can take the shipyard anywhere from a few minutes to a few weeks to assemble a new ship. There is an online Ultimate Shipyard, that is not affiliated with Kixeye, but which is usually kept up to date; and can be used to design ships and fleets at: http://bp.tel4u.gr/
Level 2 Upgrade: More efficient ship construction miniaturizes components and gives you a 15% weight savings on Forsaken weapons and armor only. There is no savings, however, on any Drac hulls, Drac specials, or on Draconian weapons and armor.
Requirements: Level 10 Advanced, Naval, and Weapons Labs.

Great HallEdit"Houses the officers given to you by your friends. Recruit officers by inviting your friends to play."
The great hall cannot be recycled nor upgraded, but may be Fortified. Invitations can be sent through the top menu, the tab is conveniently named "Invite Friends"
Every friend who has not played Battle Pirates at any time before and accepts your invitation to the game give you an officer.
In the Hall you have a list of various tasks an idle officer can be assigned to:
- Construction expert: +10% construction speed (for Buildings)
- Armor Expert: +10% naval lab research speed
- Rocket Scientist: +10% rocket build speed
- Lab Scientist: +10% advanced lab research speed
- Weapon Expert: +10% weapon research speed
- Master Engineer: +10% ship construction speed
- Master Fixer: +10% ship repair speed
- Fleet Captain (x): fleet (x) gains +10% speed
At the most you can use 17 officers as the current limit is 10 fleets.
With the introduction of Rogue Crew, The great Hall has become the Place to Recruit and preview you Rogue crews.
"Radio Tower launches, providing fans with alerts and updates via email."
- In-game DescriptionThe Radio Tower acts as a notification building for sending messages when the game updates and/or when your base is under attack from an enemy fleet. No upgrades are available for this building and only 2 messages are sent per day to the email of the player's choice. You can also setup BP to text msg you as soon as your base is under attack.
To configure this, click on the radio tower and select the RADIO TOWER button. Tick tke box of Attack Notifications and News & Updates then type your valid email address before click on the SAVE SETTINGS.
Trading PostEditThe Trading Post serves as a station in which the player may exchange their Coins for various forms of assistance, ranging from resource filling and speeding up upgrades to ship building and speeding up research.
Increases protection from enemy weapons. All buildings can now be fortified, excluding Defense Platforms and walls.
The most important buildings to fortify are your Outpost and Warehouses to protect your resources. Fortifying your Dock is also a good idea, because players destroy them to avoid retalliation attacks. Also if you have Oil Rigs in your channel they can be fortified. The extra time needed to destroy them slows enemy fleets down, on the other hand, this makes your base less "bubble friendly".
