Because of the “balancing” for base building, the recipe for insulated wood requires oil. Insulated wood is needed for the corresponding structure pieces in the tier two build set. The tier two build set is available by unlocking Journeyman Mason at level 20. Oil is only available in any viable quantity from a Fluid press, which happens to only be available at level 28. Depending on your leveling progression, this can be game breaking for certain players, not to mention the resource requirement side of this. It would be more cost effective to simply save those resources you WOULD be using on insulated wood buildings for use on the more effective Black Ice buildings.
After all, who bothers with making buildings out of wood anyways? Besides every single human civilization in the real world. And most fantasy civilizations. And wookies.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Unlock Journeyman Mason
- Cry because you now have eight more levels before you can use half of what you just unlocked.
