Community Buildings help your Village advance through the ages by transforming the Village from a safe place to stay for a few days before moving on to a thriving community to build a new life and raise a family.
Every Technology Level you reach will unlock an additional community building for your Village. Each community building has specific items that need to be inside for it to function, and a Key Item that determines how close it is to each Refugee Bed to calculate amenity scores.
1) Community buildings can start to be constructed with the construction material at the Technology Level at which they are unlocked, and can later be re-built as any higher Technology Level structure.
2) Any structure that you build that contains the Key Item for a Community Building will default to a Community Building instead of a House (e.g., if you build a really nice house and put a toilet in it, that structure will no longer count as a house. It will count as a Bathroom and any beds inside will not contribute to your Village's Population.
