The Tech Tree in Polycraft World allows Polycrafters to tech up toward advanced materials. Different grades of rubbers, plastics and resins can all be manufactured through the course of the game. Polycrafters can start with tapping trees to create Natural Rubber or PolyIsoPrene and progress to build advanced civilizations with modern materials.
