A capitol building acts as the town hall for a city. It is the seat of government for the city.


A capitol is used to start a city. When placing the capitol, a popup window will appear asking you to name the city. If the sector and/or solar system isn't named yet, you will be able to choose a name for them too.
Note: All these names can be changed later if so desired.

For the city to include other buildings, it will however require one or more police stations to claim jurisdiction over an area.

For more information, see the City page.

Declaring Capital

A city can be declared as the capital city of an empire.

To declare a city as a capital city:

  1. Stand at the capitol building plot
  2. Open the Building (F10) window
  3. Depending on whether you want the city to be the empire's capital or the current sector's capital, click either:
    • C Flag.png "Declare Empire Capital"
    • RangeGalaxy.png "Declare Galaxy Capital"
    • RangeSector.png "Declare Sector Capital"

A city can be both empire capital and sector capital at the same time, which is the same as not having a sector capital in that sector.

See the Capital City page for more information.

City Management

When in the chain of command of a city, it is possible to control all building manufacturing processes from the capitol building. This is done using the Building (F10) window while standing at the capitol building's site.

Managing a machine shop remotely.

This window displays all of the buildings, with their location, and distance from you. By selecting a building, a traditional Building window appears in the lower half allowing you to remotely manage the manufacturing of that building, including construction.

The refresh button in the top-right corner of the window updates the list. The bulldozer button bulldozes the selected building.

While in the top-down view, the selected building will be highlighted.
