This may be a silly question, but are wood and planks the same “sorts of materials”? So, to get the bonus, for Archetect Build, I need to use materials of both colors?

Thanks,
Ken

The different materials do not have to be of the same "type" to get the bonus.

Wood, Planks, Sandstone and Cement are all building materials. All of them can be used in any combination to build buildings, but to get the architects bonus, you need to use at least two different types of materials. The individual material value for building purposes are:

Wood - 1
Sandstone - 1
Planks - 2
Cement - 2

So if you want to build a value 4 building with the architect, you have a couple of options:

1. Use a single resource type. In this case you would need 4 wood, 4 sandstone, 2 planks or 2 cement. Your choice.

2. Use multiple resource types. If you do, you get a +1 to the sum of the resource values. So for example, you could use
- 2 wood and 1 sandstone (2 + 1 + 1(bonus) = 4)
- 1 wood and 1 plank (1 + 2 + 1(bonus) = 4)
- 1 plank and 1 cement (2 + 2 + 1(bonus) = 5). You overpaid!

etc.

Hope this helps!
