Is it time for auto age players to have a second oil refinery?

Instead of wasting resources, I would like to suggest a second oil refinery in auto age.

The 10,000-20,000 increase in oil storage that comes with upgrading the oil refinery doesn’t cut it anymore at higher ages.

I understand that oil was initially designed to be a scarce resource in the game. I remember when looting a couple of thousand oil in one raid was a big deal—not the case anymore. People can max out their oil storage now in a few raids. I believe it’s about time to add a second oil refinery.

That's not a bad idea. A new refinery would be much appreciated. It would distribute resources and greatly increase storage capacity, which would be great.

However, I still hope that a new feature will be implemented into the game. We are going through eras where oil is no longer a unique resource. Introducing new forms of energy would bring something truly new to the game and would follow the evolution of the drone, automation, and robotics era.

Introducing a new type of resource sounds interesting and would add an extra layer of complexity and fun for high age players.

2 番目の製油所は保管スペースを増やすだけでなく、襲撃時の潜在的な戦利品も増やします。 したがって、数回の戦いの後でも、製油所は戦利品でいっぱいになります。
したがって、2 番目の石油貯蔵施設によって貯蔵スペースは増加しますが、「問題」は残ります。 (それは私にとって問題ではありませんが、それは私たちが暮らすことができる贅沢です)

おそらく 14 日に 1 回、より大きなストレージ容量があれば便利だと思います。 特に、1 つの研究後に襲撃するのではなく、節約した石油を使って 2 つの研究を同時に開始できればなおさらです。 一方、事前に少し計画を立てておけば、研究を異なる週に開始して終了するように計画を立てることができます。

電気/エネルギーのようなまったく新しいリソースは良いアイデアです。
これを、接続されたすべての建物を強化する発電所として簡単に実装できます (生産の高速化、火力の増加など)。 そうすれば、道路と同じようになり、別の倉庫は必要なくなります。

あるいは、ゲームにさらに多くの複雑さを追加することもできます。 4 番目のリソースとして、これも最初は非常に不足しています。 ただし、このようなことを機能させるには、長期的に事前に計画する必要があります。 (そして、そのようなアップデートを徹底的にテストしてください)。
私にとってはバグ修正が最優先事項ですが、その後の追加は歓迎すべきことです。

I agree with all the previous “speakers”. Introducing a new type of energy resource for Higher Ages would be a very interesting idea!
But! Only after all the long-standing requests of the players in the game are implemented, and issues and bugs are fixed.
Enough with the innovations - it's time to tidy up what's already in the game!

Another solution would be a resource exchange system amongst alliance members, which people have been asking for years.
Failing that, BHG could, if they wanted to, make oil exchanges more attractive via the VIP store.
Otherwise a 2nd refinery would be great from a mostly-upgraded, happy-to-be-looted Auto Age pov.

All of these ideas sound good to me and can be implemented in addition to a second refinery lol.

I have also seen many requests asking for the possibility of using oil to upgrade walls, but BHG doesn’t seem interested.

Don't think so. We already have Looted Resources Refund, at all times I have 150K+ minimum Oil sitting in my defence log which is basically another Oil Refinery with some gold and food added on top of that.

“at all times I have 150K+ minimum Oil sitting in my defence log which is basically another Oil Refinery”

That’s exactly the reason why I think we need at least double the storage we have now (a second refinery)—to store the extra oil obtained from (1) the looted resources refund, (2) the vault interest, and (3) raiding other bases.

Now I understand that the oil obtained from (1) could just sit in your defense log until you need it, but sometimes it is wasted if you had to use some of the food or gold refunds while your refinery is at capacity.

Additionally, the oil obtained from other sources such as (2) & (3) just goes to waste. Of course adding extra storage will not absolutely solve the problem, but will at least minimize the waste.

That’s why I think it would be nice to have some extra oil storage at auto age (I understand that wasted oil is probably not a problem lower age players would normally have).

@Der BabyHund I disagree. After they bumped up the Oil and resources bonus even with my Industrial account getting resources and Oil became so much easier, I'm full with Oil across all of my accounts.
