Blocks are place-able objects that affect your world in several various ways. They do not hold an inventory. However they do have many other properties which fall into a few broad subcategories;

Path[edit | edit source]

Paths alter the movement of units and/or items. They are usually not stack-able on their own.

Structure[edit | edit source]

These blocks occupy physical space and may alter walk-able and build-able attributes for paths placed on top of them.

These blocks can dynamically modify the flow of workers or items on underlying paths. They are placed as overlays on top of structural blocks or paths.

Computation[edit | edit source]

These blocks act as sensors for world data or accept inputs from other blocks, perform specified calculations, and send out an output value. They can be chained together to create complex functions.

Function[edit | edit source]

These blocks are laid on the ground and alter the properties of buildings which are nearby them. They are usually not stack-able.

Decoration[edit | edit source]

These blocks are mainly available to offer a sense of creativity and does usually not offer functionality. Even though you can use fences and walls to prevent workers from interacting with buildings. This comes in handy with unfiltered barns or silos.
