Coreborn: Nations of the Ultracore – Towns Guide



Towns are probably the most essential feature of Coreborn. They serve as a reserved spot on the map claimed by you and others allowed to join your town. In these areas marked by a golden border, no one else can build, destroy or interact with anything.

However, structures and objects outside of towns will deteriorate and eventually be destroyed unless repaired. Deterioration does not happen in towns. The weather can still damage buildings within town, depending on the enviroment you have built in.

The Town Center

To place a Town Center, equip and draw the building hammer [Left mouse or Z], click the right mouse button, and choose the Town section, which contains the Town Center blueprint. Find a nice spot, place the blueprint, and finish building it, given you have the materials in your inventory, by pressing the left mouse button with the hammer while looking at it. Check the “Building Control” section of this Journal for more information on placement.

Then you need to place a town gate by again choosing it from the same page of the building menu and placing it on the outskirts of your town. This will generate a path in between the gate and the town center.

If you set it up in a way that doesn’t allow you to build said path, you either have to fix that by placing structures that lead towards the town center and allow for a valid path, or pick a different position for the town gate.

Once you have a Town Center and set a town gate, you gain access to range of features:

  • Respawn at a town center after death
  • Allow others to join your town
  • Build more crafting stations
  • Defend your town
  • Construct defense structures
  • Level up your town and unlock more building materials

Adding People To Your Town

If people would like to join your town (by loooking at the Town Center and pressing [E]), they can now do so. You have access the menu the same way, by pressing [E] when facing the Town Center, to either approve or deny their application and manage members in general.

Anyone added this way currently has full authority to build, destroy, or access anything in the town, so be cautious. Additional authority management options are planned for the future.

Expanding Your Town

To expand the boundaries of your town, craft and place town expansions, found on the “Other” page of the building hammer menu. The number of expansions you can build depends on your town’s level.

Town Attacks & Wrath

Sorgoth despises your efforts to reclaim these lands, so leveling a Town generates wrath. Once it reaches 100%, your town will come under attack. Gothkin will spawn and attempt to destroy your structures. If they succeed and reduce the health of the Town Center to zero, your town loses a level, and the wrath meter is reset.

Every time you add an essence crystal to your town center, which is required to level your town, it generates wrath and eventually triggers an attack. Be careful. Once an attack is triggered you have to fight it.

The spawning corrupted creatures and Gothkin will spawn in waves and try to destroy your Town Center. If they are successful, it loses a level. However, you can fight them and build defense structures to better protect what you have created.

As your Town level increases, the attacks become stronger and more frequent, so it’s crucial to be prepared or delay them, if you lack the time later.

Leveling Your Town

By interacting with your Town Center, you can level up your town, To do so, you need to provide more and more Essence Crystals and fulfill the listed requirements. Once you have submitted all the necessary resources, your town will level up, unlocking more features, extensions, crafting stations, and will trigger stronger town attacks.

It’s an essential step for progression but significantly increases the game’s difficulty. Collaborating with other players and having them join your town can be a huge help!
