Frontiersman Structures

Marine structures a easily deployable equipment used by the TSF. Typically printed with nano-technology and from Altera Corporation approved pre-fabricated equipment patterns the structures of the TSF are compact, storeable, easily constructed items to proved technology to their troops on the front. All structures come in two formats basic and advanced each of these trees contain two separate paths and research requirements and have individual Team Resource requirements in order to build them. One requirement that all buildings must have is a Power Nodes supplying ample power to the buildings in that room otherwise the equipment will revert to its powered down storage state.

Base TSF Buildings

Advanced buildings are primary buildings that offer base technology advantages. Usually require minimal amounts of Team Resources to build and unlock advanced structures.
