State of Survival: HQ and other buildings upgrade requirements (now with a video-guide!)

I was unable to find any single source of materials, time and other requirements to upgrade different buildings in the game, so decided to compile my own. If you find some incorrect values, please let me know in comments.

Version history:
1.2 - 22/01/2021 - All tables were updated with latest data;
1.1 - 26/11/2020 - Updated tables and mistakes corrected;
1.0 - 15/07/2020 - Guide created.
Buildings video guide – part 1

In the table below you will find the most important requirements for the HQ upgrades. Before you launch one, please make sure you follow those tips to build as quickly as possible. I’ve collected them all here.

Headquarters (HQ) Lvl. 10-30 Upgrade Requirements

All units in MLN and raw time (no boosts). If you see a typo, please leave a comment below.

I hope that’s the only change. Trying to get to HQ 21 asap.

I’ll post again if the next requirement for HQ 17 isn’t Range 16

P3 to P4 HQ is 280 cores, not 250 and HP is 140 cores, not 125. Cannot confirm the troop buildings at this time.
