A settlement is a Location in Dawn 2055 that can provide a safe place for players to congregate. It also provides a Bar (and with it, Missions), Warehouse, Workshop, Storage, Shop and mercenary recruitment. There are two types of settlements: independent and gang-controlled.

Building a settlementEdit

When a settlement is first built, it's called an outpost and it has no buildings (examples of buildings are: shop, bar, workshop, defenses). These buildings can be constructed, which costs materials.

All buildings are upgradeable to better buildings of the same type. Building development is measured in levels. Each next level building upgrade costs more resources than previous. Upgrading the settlement, for example, from an outpost to a small settlement, will allow upgrading all other buildings to level 2. Upgrading will set upkeep time to expire in one week.

Defenses - Each level gives an additional bonus to defense.

Gates - If the settlement gates are closed, only players belonging to the same gang as the settlement can enter it. As well as that, a settlement will be displayed as hostile on the map to other players. The settlement can be accessed by anyone if gates are open. If gates are closed the shop is closed as well.

Settlement Upkeep - Settlements require resources and bottle caps to maintain them. Resources for settlement upkeep can be added through settlement management section. The first two upgrades don't require upkeep resources. The more developed a town is, the more resources it requires.

Once resources run out, settlement funds and materials stored in the warehouse will be used to extend upkeep period. If these run out all services except storage will be locked. If resources for settlement maintenance aren't added within one week the settlement will leave the faction and join the bandit faction.
