I have a question regarding restricted materials, tier 4-6 companies, and tier 6 workshops. The way the current rules read to me, it sounds like anyone, regardless of company or workshop affiliation, can create any technology or vehicle submission using any restricted material, so long as the production value is only unique or Semi-unique. In addition to this, it seems that a tier 4 company or major faction can create a Starship using any restricted material at unique production, with tier 5 companies doing the same at Semi-unique. It then appears that a tier 6 company can create any Factory submission with a specific restricted material at limited production.
Yet the workshop rules seem to indicate that only at tier 6 Des a workshop gain the ability to use a specific restricted material at Semi-unique production, regardless of tech, vehicle, or starship.
My questions are-
Is this the case?
Is this intended?
And what are the intended benefits for tier 6 workshops that do not produce starships?
Also, if this is an oversight, perhaps tier 6 workshops could produce Semi-unique tech/vehicles with two (non-alloy) restricted materials?
