Having a blind spot on this - can I use the tags on my cards to help pay for a standard project or is it cash only?

Standard actions are cash only.
They are there so you can still use certain strategic options (like placing a city before covering it with greenery tiles, or reaching a milestone), even if you don't draw the cards for that.
And, of course, so you never run out of stuff to do.


That said, you can never use tags to pay for other cards, only steel and titanium can be used to pay for cards with the building or space tag, respectively.


Cheers,
Sebastian

Use your tags to play? Not sure what you mean.

There's a project and a corp that gives a discount on Standard projects, but other than those it's M€ fr payment.

(As in you can't other resources of any kind)

I'm very sorry to labor the point now that you have been answered, but I'm really lost as to how you used tags to pay for standard projects.

If you misinterpreted something, others may, too ... understanding your thought process could be helpful in teaching the game!

I was using tags to pay for cards and wondered if you could use them for standard projects - wrong on both counts !

Reading more into tags than the rules allow.

If the card you're trying to build has a building or space tag, you can use steel or titanium (respectively) to help pay for it. Other than that, I don't recall any other cost-reducing effects from tags. Except, I suppose, for card(s) that reduce the price you pay for events (not sure that that is properly a tag, though).
