There are many buildings in CivCity: Rome, which are categorized by their functions.

Town center: This is the most important building in CivCity. It is where vagrants and immigrants gather for work in the city. Citizens cannot arrive if there is no town center. Construction of a town center starts the game, essentially.

Housing and Storage[]

  • House: Basic housing, starts off as a shack. Different levels of housing cannot be built by the player; rather, they require the inhabitants to improve it by gathering goods. However, if the player chooses to build an aqueduct and a reservoir, every newly built shack would automatically improve to a basic level hovel. The housing levels and goods are as follows:
    • Shack: Requires water to improve. Water can be collected at wells that require a citizen to man them, or can be sent directly to homes by cisterns attached to an aqueduct tower, which saves labor and time.
    • Small Hut: Requires meat to improve. Meat is gathered from animal farms, granaries, and sold at butchers' shops.
    • Medium Hut: Requires tunics to improve. Linen is produced at flax farms and is turned into cloth at tunic shops.
    • Large Hut: Requires olive oil to improve. Olives are harvested in olive farms and then turned into olive oil at an olive press.
    • Small Hovel: Requires marriage and beds to improve. Marriage is started when the inhabitant visits a local temple and gets married. Wives are automatically "produced" at temples and will follow the inhabitant to his home and live there and start a family. Wood is created when lumberjacks cut down trees at woodcutters' workshops is and turned into beds at a carpenter's shop. The carpenter will then store the bed in the Warehouse.
    • Medium Hovel: Requires bread and entertainment to improve. You need a bakery, a wheat farm, and a mill to make bread. The Bread will then be stored in a Granary, or it will be sold at the Bakery. Entertainment comes in wide varieties such as taverns, piazzas, or a coliseum.
    • Large Hovel: Requires piped water and bathing to improve. Aqueducts and cisterns provide piped water for the city. Baths provide bathing for your citizens.
    • Small Insula: Requires basic education to improve. Basic education can be provided by building a Grammaticus.
    • Medium Insula: Requires fruit to improve. Fruit is harvested at fruit farms and can be sold at a Fruit Stand. Also requires a Doctor's Office.
    • Large Insula: Requires Hospital access and a slave from a Slave Market to improve.
    • Small Domus: Requires further education, build a Library. Also requires Togas from a Tailors Shop which requires Linen.
    • Medium Domus: Requires Wine from a Wine Merchant or Granary, Spa Access, and Glassware from your Glass Blowers.
    • Large Domus: Requires a Recliner from a Cabinet Maker and Warehouse, a Barber Shop for grooming, Dates from a Date Stand or a Granary, and requires another Slave from a Slave Market.
    • Villa: Requires access to a Senate where they debate and talk, a Dressmaker for Dresses, a Flower Bouquet from a Flower Shop, and Goose Meat from a Goose Shop or Granary.
    • Palace: Requires everything shown above.

You can also build Empty Insulas, which will be occupied whenever the nearest Large Hovel wants to upgrade. Empty Insulas can be built overtop shops.

When a house doesn't get a required need fulfilled, it will downgrade into a smaller house. The more requirements aren't fulfilled, the faster the house downgrades.

  • Granary: Stores all foods (excluding Water Jugs). The building is able to be modified to only allow certain foods within the Granary.
  • Warehouse: Stores all goods/materials (excluding Water Jugs). The building is able to be modified to only allow certain materials and goods within the Warehouse. The warehouse features a Donkey Carriage at the entrance, and can be used to transport goods to other Warehouses.

  • Roads: A path that connects buildings and your city together, people will use the closest road in their AI Pathfinding. Roads can be upgraded to improve the amount of speed your people will get when they walk onto the path with research such as Engineering and The Wheel.
  • Bridge: A bridge that is used to connect from island to island in certain levels. Those who use it do not receive a speed boost.
  • Transport Jetty: A small boat used to transport people from place to place when bridges are not an option, you have to build 2 in order for them to work. Each jetty will transport your people between places In or Out.
