Overbuild modifier

In each town there is a certain space where buildings can be built with ease. The more your town grows, the more difficult constructing new buildings will get. Using more difficult spots will cost you more effort and resources. This is presented by the Overbuild modifier, starting at 175 buildings and 8 extra buildings for each town level.

You can also make space and destroy not needed buildings via Inventory->Buildings->Destroy. All building destroyed that way give back some of resources.
