    Default 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 this idea, although I'd add an alteration where only those who demolish without the use of gold gain the benefits of 50% resource return. Those who use gold to instantly destroy the building should be left with nothing.

    I'd agree on that. It would be the equivalent of them torching the place.

    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?

    Each level. If you only took the conservatory off your house, you'd only have the stuff you salvaged from that.

    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!
