Quickbuild is a menu that allow the player to quickly place and build various pre-fabricated rooms. It also has the clone tool that allows the player to clone and stamp down an already existing area.



The clone tool is useful for creating multiple instances of an already existing room or area. Hold down the right mouse button to select an area to clone. Click the left mouse button to build it.

Utilities will not be cloned, and anything built on a foundation must have an existing building in place before it can be built.

Before Version 1.4, cloning had to be researched under maintenance before it could be used.
