Ruins are structures spawned in every biome except for the Ice sheet. They may consist of damaged walls, columns, stelae, urns, and stone flooring. They can be deconstructed for quick resources in the early game or be utilized as cover when on the offensive. Ruins can be molded to blend with a mountain. If an undamaged wall is present on a mountainous ruin, the structure may instead be an ancient shrine.
Additional buildings may also spawn scattered accross the map, or along side roads if on a map with them. Some of these are present in the core game, but a greater number and variety will spawn with the Ideology DLC. These structures are largely decorative, and exist simply to enhance the world building, providing further evidence of human habitation. Most cannot be deconstructed and even more no resources when deconstructed or destroyed.
