I know that it would be far too hard to change but.......every turn I get annoyed by  Lumber growing in some forest and a lumber mill converting it into timber!

I am from the Pacific Northwest and I can assure you the world is quite the opposite.  Timber grows in the forest and is chopped down, taken to a lumber mill where it is converted into lumber (2x4's, 4x4's, plywood, and such).

The rules state:

Lumber: Raw wood and other forest products in an unfinished form. Lumber is refined into Timber
for use in the manufacture of more complex items. (1 ton) 10 Raw Resources

 

 

Dictionary.com states:

Timber Noun- the wood of growing trees suitable for structural uses or the growing trees themselves.      

Lumber : Noun -   timber sawed or split into planks, boards, etc.

 

Is this issue fixable???????

Might not make sense in game but it works. There are quite a few things actually like the size of fighter craft for tiny and gigantic races.  They all cost the same and have the same fire power but the gigantic races fighter craft is gonna be well really huge where  as the little winged fairy critters fighter craft is gonna be well really really small.

The terms lumber and timber were accidentally swapped in the initial database and at this point swapping them back to match their correct definitions would cause a number of issues--it remains one of those little oddities that became fixtures in the game 😃

Still works in the grand scheme of things. Just have to adjust your real world thinking just a little. Timber/ Lumber pfttt

ita all wood in the end. 😊

Hi Landmine - do you still live in the Pacific Northwest? I live in Portland.

Sadly, I have moved to the Midwest. But as someone once said, I will be back.

I just remember that, in the game, Lumber is Lousy and Timber is Terrific.

I noticed the same thing in one of my other games.  Boardwalk was terrific and Mediterranean Avenue was lousy.  Every game has good points and bad points
