This page lists all buildings that can be constructed in Dune II.

Construction Yard

This building is built by deploying a Mobile Construction Vehicle.

The Construction Yard is the only building which is present to the player at the start of a new mission. The Construction Yard allows the player to construct new buildings. This building can be built by deploying an MCV to a clear spot, and does not have to be placed on pavement to avoid damage. The Construction Yard the player starts with is the only building that doesn't take damage over time.

Small Concrete Slab

This building serves as pavement for other buildings and can't be selected or repaired.
  • Required building: Construction Yard
  • Building size: 1 tile
  • Cost: 5 credits
  • First available: Mission 1

The Small Concrete Slab is not really a building but serves as pavement for other buildings. New buildings that are only partially placed, or not at all, on pavement start damaged.

Large Concrete Slab

This building serves as pavement for other buildings and can't be selected or repaired.
  • Required building: Construction Yard (must be upgraded once)
  • Building size: 2x2 tiles
  • Cost: 20 credits
  • First available: Mission 4

The Large Concrete Slab is a larger version of the Small Concrete Slab which allows for faster placement of pavement.

Wall

This building can't be selected or repaired.
  • Required building: Outpost
  • Building size: 1 tile
  • Cost: 50 credits
  • First available: Mission 4

The Wall serves as a barricade for all units, and must be destroyed before units can go through it. The Wall does not have to be placed on pavement to avoid damage.

Windtrap

  • Required building: Construction Yard
  • Building size: 2x2 tiles
  • Cost: 300 credits
  • First available: Mission 1
  • Power output: 100

The Windtrap is the only building that provides power. Power is needed for only some buildings to function properly, but most buildings do drain power. The initial power output of a Windtrap is 100 (unit is unknown) but as it gets damaged the power output decreases.

  • Building size: 3x2 tiles
  • Cost: 400 credits
  • First available: Mission 1
  • Power needed: 30
  • Spice capacity: 1000 credits

When a Refinery is built a free Harvester is delivered. When the Harvester is fully loaded it will return to the Refinery and begin unloading the spice, converting it into credits. When the amount of spice exceeds the total spice capacity of all Refineries and Silo's that spice is lost.
