The deconstruct function is used to tear down a building and remove it from the City or Fields space to make room for another building. The button to deconstruct a building is found when you click on that building to view its upgrade options.
Deconstructing a building is a construction operation. You cannot deconstruct a building while you are waiting for construction on another building in the same city.
Deconstruction of a building takes half as much time as the last upgrade for that building. Deconstructing a building also returns half of the resources that were spent on the last upgrade only.
For example, consider a level 3 Cottage:
|Upgrade lv.2 to lv.3, required resources||1:33||400||2000||400||200|
|Deconstruct lv.3, resources returned||0:46||200||1000||200||100|
DestroyThe other form of deconstruction is Destroy. You can destroy buildings immediately using a Dragon's Stomp.
You will not get any resources from this type of deconstruction.
