Standard base tiles cannot be upgraded to Plastic Tiles like other types.

Unlike airflow and mesh tiles (and farm tiles) which can be automatically upgraded to from normal base tiles, plastic tiles cannot. You have to deconstruct the base tiles then build plastic tiles.

This might be intended, but it is different from how other tiles behave.


Steps to Reproduce
Build base tile, try to turn it into a plastic tile. Game will not let it happen. Have to deconstruct old tile, then build plastic tile.

It's not a good idea to do that anyway. Overbuilding a tile with a tile of another material will destroy the material used to build the original tile.

Similarly when replacing a pipe with insulated pipe or vice versa, original materials are lost again.

In the lategame u have 100 tons of the most materials. Who cares about a couple of lost materials ? Better fast replacement than stupidly deconstruct and build again. Have u ever run out of raw materials ? Except Sandstone, Obsidian, Abyssalite. I don't think so. :p
