Guard Towers

Guard towers may be purchased from the 'Items' tab while docked in a colony. If you do not see one for sale, then the current colony is not of high enough level, or there are simply none in stock currently. They cost 56 gold, and will then cost an addition amount of wood when placed. To place a guard tower, while docked at a colony, right click the cargo box icon for it and choose 'Equip'. Then, navigate your ship close to any land area in which you'd like to place it, and click the guard tower button on the hot bar at the bottom of the screen, and mouse over the chosen land area. You must be relatively close to where you'd like to place the tower in order for the target to be green and place the structure.

Once a current guard tower has been 'destroyed' it will become neutrally owned and be sitting at roughly 1/4 of its total health. To capture it, simply keep your boat within the light blue circle that appears after you are out of combat. Once captured, it will slowly repair itself, or you can manually repair it by clicking on the repair icon over it, which will cost 18 wood.

Lighthouses

Lighthouses do not have any sort of attack, but simply provide a larger range of view surrounding it, uncovering the fog of war.
