The Tek Foundation is the fifth and final unlockable foundation. A foundation is required to build any kind of housing/storage structure.

Construction[edit | edit source]

A Tek Foundation can be placed on even or slightly uneven ground. Once the first Tek Foundation is placed, subsequent Tek Foundations can snap into place along the first one, allowing them to line up, provided that there is adequate room and ground to do so.

A foundation provides the structural support to allow the placement of walls, ceilings, and other such objects, but only when the Tek Foundation is directly underneath them. It also supports up to two ceilings in any direction on the x and y-axis, and up to 1 ceiling diagonally. However, the ceilings on the far end will not support walls.

The decay (auto-demolish) timer is longer than for a metal foundation.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Tekgram is obtained by defeating Broodmother Lysrix or Crystal Wyvern Queen on easy difficulty.
  • If a foundation is destroyed, any building pieces that rely on it for support will be destroyed as well. If it was destroyed via the demolish option, no resources will be refunded for these extra building pieces.
