Built from wood and steel, the arena team platforms are used to assign settlers to a team to fight in arena combat. Multiple platforms of each color can be built to assign several settlers to a single team. The quitting time siren is used in conjunction with the platforms to let settlers know when combat has ended.
There are two variations of platform: One for the blue team and one for the red team.
- Only one settler can be assigned to a single platform, however multiple platforms can be built to increase the size of the corresponding team.
- Hostile creatures and people cannot be assigned to team platforms.
- Pacified and tamed creatures cannot be directly assigned to arena platforms. If one wishes to use these in a fight, they can build a cage with the entrance opening into the inside of the arena. Settlers and robots constructed using the robotic workbench will be automatically hostile to released creatures.
