Glass seems frequently easy to purchase but roof tiles and bricks are very rare. I have four trading docks year 8 and so far noone has brought any bricks or RT. I did finally order some and they came. I was wondering whether that was intentional or not that ceramics are rare and what the thinking is on it?
I love that salt can’t be produced because it makes trading relevant. However it doesn’t seem to me that salt would be unproduceable by Nordics, seawater can be dried into salt. It does seem as though glass and bricks wouldn’t be produced in the North. I don’t think of them having clay houses, usually logs, but I don’t know facts on this. I wonder if it would make more sense to make salt produceable but bricks and glass not? But then I would ask that there always be a less efficient version of a building (or way to produce something) that doesn’t require bricks, and a more efficient that does involve glass and bricks.
I also notice stone is not available to buy, that seems to be the only thing cannot be bought. I wonder if that is intentional? The only reason it’s an issue is because if I build a quarry then it leaves a scar on the map so I’d rather buy all the stone I need.
It was intentional, yes. But the quarry will not leave a scar in your landscape. It turns into a nice fishing area if you flood it. Also, production values are re-balanced to make the quarry more useful. Like more stones from it in a shorter working time and with less risk to be killed by rocks than it is in base game.
