Forges are base structures used for crafting and repairing metal items. They require a roof and 70% cover to be usable. Repairing items doesn't cost any resources.


Upgrading a forge enables additional crafting recipes and higher upgrade levels for items. A forge can be upgraded up to level 7 by building following structures near it:
