Make buildings requiring metal ores buildabe with refined metal

Going to add my "Oh, Yes Please!" to this as well. Would very much like to use all that output from the volcanoes after exhausting the maps ore supplies late game

Perhaps have some reasonable choice differences in the material chosen? Some suggestions:

  • Copper: 25% reduced power draw
  • Gold: +50oC Overheat threshold, and 10% reduced power draw
  • Iron: +150oC Overheat Threshold
  • Tungsten: +300oC Overheat Threshold

This would give some reason to use copper and iron late game, and a good risk/reward difference in the refined metals. Tungsten produces more heat than gold to refine, but would be FAR better at high temperature applications.

Personally, I would love to see mini-pumps buildable with refined metals. Plastic pumps can melt easily and I don't see why they couldn't be made out of metal, especially refined metal.

Yes, except for cases where it's undesirable for e.g. game balancing reasons.

Or perhaps just give us a lossless way to turn metals between raw and refined in both directions.
