Recycling. Even the Romans did it.

  • When demolishing a building, the ancients would generally re-use anything left over, beams, bricks, stonework, etc. Trav should return 50% of the used materials (maybe not crop. The builders ate that) when a building is demolished or reduced.

  • I like that idea and it does of course make sense.

  • I like the recycling idea as well.
    Hmm, how would it work? If you demolish a building from level 20? It takes forever to do it... Would you receive 50% of resourses from each level? Or would you receive all when building is down?

  • You could probably argue different tribes would have the skills to reclaim different amounts of resources too... but I think that would most likely be an unnecessarily complex addition to this neat little idea.


    Surprised it hadn't been said already! First time I've heard of it!

    Addition isn't big, but perhaps it would give some reward for thouse who doesn't use gold and help in the start of the server. Later wouldn't do much anymore.

  • Yep agree this is a good idea, it would take an absolute age to demolish some buildings from level 20 ... but worth it if you get half the resources back and in no massive hurry.


    The of course the 5 gold lets torch the place idea also stands, nothing back.


    Edit...
    the smarter people might manually knock it down the slow way from 20 to 16 to get the majority of resources back.. then torch it for 5 gold!

  • MODS!!! I forgot the term used for when players revive back old threads by posting in it ... Can someone please tell me what it used to be called or I'll start ripping my hair off!!!!

    Yes, I've built my fair share of WWs. Won a few, lost a few. Played far too many rounds for far too long. Made a lot friends and enemies.


    Yes, I've played as an anvil and as a hammer. I'm only playing now because of all the friendship I have built over the past ten years. I love Travian but I love the community even more.


    Envy me for I have everything, Fear me for I have nothing to lose.

    I remember it being more of a concise word with the influence of necroposting ... I looked in the forum guidelines and couldn't find it there.


    I remember doing it in 2016 and Matt(m.hudson) warned me to not do it again :D
