Partial construction

Video game concept

Construction can be paused leaving the construction into partially complete state, resources diverted to other activities for a time, and resumed at a later date without having to restart the work from scratch.


Alternate names: Pausable construction
Name variations: pauseable construction

The first video game about Partial construction was released in 1998.

Blizzard Entertainment, THQ and 2K Games has published most of these games

This is as opposed only being able to cancel or speed up construction to divert resources and work elsewhere.

Also covers instances where construction does not get auto-cancelled if all involved construction workers leave your employment (or get killed) mid-construction.
