After the players have collected enough amounts of Iron Ore, they can now upgrade their Town Center to tier 3 in Farthest Frontier.

Also, the upgrade is still pretty minimum, and it will take the players a lot of time before they complete the upgrade. Once you reach tier three of Town Center, you can now construct a Foundry.
