In Black & White, a Civic Building is a building that does not shelter villagers, but instead provide some benefit to them. It costs 3 scaffoldings to make one. There are four different civic buildings in Black & White: the village store, the workshop, the graveyard and the crèche

Civic Buildings Edit

Village Store Edit

Main article: Village Store

Allows villagers to store food and wood and shows desire flags which indicate to gods and creatures what the people want.

Workshop Edit

Main article: Workshop

Allows the player to build scaffoldings which can be used to construct other buildings in game. Has a desire flag indicating how much wood is needed before a scaffolding is produced as well as a yard where up to three scaffoldings can be kept at the same time.

Graveyard Edit

Main article: Graveyard

Makes dead bodies disappear much faster than normal rate, allowing villagers to focus on their tasks instead of mourning the dead.
