You can have one plot per planet. Personal land plots are predefined on the map. Plots come in various sizes. Plots are already flat. You don't have to level them. You cannot destroy somebody's house and cultivation can't be pillaged by strangers. You can be killed on your plot of land if you're living in the wilderness. Guards grants you partial protection in town(or total protection in good-aligned town).
Erecting a building in Fractured requires multiple steps. First, you must lay the foundations of the house, then you can construct the walls and floors to finally have access to the roof. Each step requires carrying heavy resources by hand, so having friends will speed up the process. You can help somebody build a house. You can place your house anywhere you want on your plot. You can place your house in any plot that's large enough. Different types of personal houses aren't tied to specific plot sizes. Only you and the people you give permission to, have access to your house. This doesn't require a key or anything like that. You can charge for access to your place. You can have some limited storage space in your house.
There will always be some room between plots, even in towns. The only building you can build on your personal plot is your house. The other types of buildings are tied to towns.
Buildings will have 2 floors at most. Tall buildings would have been extremely annoying because Fractured is an isometric game.
