Timerborn is the early access colony builder that screams climate change. The game is divided into wet and dry seasons, with the droughts becoming progressively longer and the challenge being to keep your beavers alive to see one more year.
Timberborn currently features two factions; the environmentalist Folktails and the industrialist Iron Teeth. Each has their own playstyle and while both are equally viable, you'll probably end up favouring one over the other.
Timberborn Iron Teeth Faction
Since each faction plays differently, it's only to be expected that they have their own unique technologies and buildings. Below you'll find those of the Iron Teeth and a brief comparison with the Folktails.
Deep Water Pump
The Deep Water Pump is available at game start and allows for water collection up to 6 tiles deep. This is massively superior to the Folktails 2 deep pump and allows for deep dams or wells to be utilised.
These are the homes favoured by the Iron Teeth and you can simply consider them to be more space efficient than the Folktails Lodges. They fulfil sleep and comfort but aren't required for breeding.
Unlike the Folktails, the Iron Teeth aren't into free love. Instead, Breeding Pods are used to factory farm baby beavers. This is an incredibly efficient way of quickly expanding your population and the process can also be paused, letting you keep a large number ready to go as you expand.
Large Metal Platform
Both factions have access to Metal Platforms but as is customary, the Iron Teeth takes things more seriously and can build an even bigger one. This platform isn't exactly useful early game - even if you could afford the 500 Metal Blocks it takes to build them - but can allow for 'oil rig' style construction later on.
For only 400 science you can unlock this building which generates a reasonable amount of power from burning wood. This running cost is greater than the Folktails free wind power, but is far more reliable, especially once you create a large scale lumberjack industry.
