    Proposal
    Create One Down Kit

    Current System
    Currently we have One Up kit only.

    Details
    Since resources needed in upper ages are connected to resources from lower ages it would be good if we could "downgrade" our event buildings so it could produce resources from lower ages. The new GB Star Gazer is only delivering goods from previous era and is available in Space Age Mars.

    Abuse Prevention
    No chance for abuse since this is reversal of already exciting system (One up kit)

    Visual Aids
    N/A

    Conclusion
    It would be very helpful to diversify our event buildings and would help with production of goods needed in upper ages, right now the only source of lower goods is market.

    No, again.

    The Merchant or whatever they're calling the trade building might be an answer to this alleged problem.

    No.

    This idea has been brought up before, and I opposed it then. I'll oppose it in the future when it's inevitably brought up again.

    If you need a building at a certain age for whatever reason, then leave it at that age instead of leveling it up. And previous era Champions will be less important now that Inno's decided to step on the GvG farming.

    There are quite a few Great Buildings that produce lower age goods (for those ME and higher).

    @Orius Maximus the proposal works only for the event buildings, if you are in the high age you have no interest in new event buildings since you will get more production of goods you are already producing.

    I'm well aware of that.

    It's not hard to maintain event buildings at a particular level, I do it all the time. If you want an event building that's an age behind, then you don't level it up, that simple. New event buildings will be your current age though. If you really need to produce goods from the previous age, then the Star Gazer does just that. Otherwise, GBs make goods from 3 ages behind starting at ME. The only other building here that makes any difference is having Champions of multiple levels for GvG.

    Amazing proposal. Can't believe you are the first one to propose this, so unlike you I used the search function.

    Idea has already been proposed, voted on and submitted to Inno, but apart from that, great work on your side.

    As Agent has said, this has been proposed, voted and submitted. Perhaps a moderator will show us mercy and close this thread.

    However I will propose an alternative... an All The Way Down kit. Then you have to use one ups to get it where you want.

    Someone here said that Renovation Kits should have the ability to let you choose the age of the Event Building.

    FYI in last FB live this was answered by inno designers. They said NO as going back in ages is against the spirit of the game.....as i type this...inno kinda screwed it up by releasing a gb that gives previous age goods.

    I'd rather see a camp selection kit :)

    I don't really agree there, as previous age goods are used for the GE and research. In particular, the GE has the negotiation feature which has been expanded into quest and DC requirements

    All GBs give earlier-age goods once you hit ME, so I don't see how the new one giving previous-age goods is that different. However, all of that is quite different than retrograding existing buildings.

    Yeah unrefined goods...here they made a SAM gb so that if you are in SAM it gives VF goods, which is kindof different + their response for 1 down kit was we don't want to do anything that tries to go back.

    A GB giving previous-era goods is more like other GBs that give unrefined goods than it is like the ability to retrograde production and special buildings. I don't see how Inno has contradicted itself in any way.
