First off, great game. Looking forward to new releases as they come.
Anyway, on to topic, i found something quite annoying the other day in that I made a mistake with my construction by destroying the barbarian Wood Hardner before a new one was complete. Thanks to the new on-demand system i didnt have a reserve in stock, and the new Wood Hardner was waiting for hardened wood before it could be completed.
Therefore i had a huge economy producing lots of crap, but i couldnt make any more buildings.
Had a similar problem with Empire and marble as well.
Shouldnt there always be a path to the most basic construction items so that unless you have no wood to get even a lumberjack then there is always a path to recover?
eg: Wood Hardner only requires wood, not hardened wood (or planks or whatever).
I admit, i was inexperienced here and made a stupid mistake, but imagine situations where due to enemy aggression you loose your last Wood Hardner but otherwise have a healthy economy, it leaves you pretty much with "game over".
