Suggestion: Rework protected areas
Opinion: Protected areas should be reworked to symbolize what can be mined and what not (like a different kind of dirt, different texture/colour)
1. Dirt should never be protected if it is next to a man-made structure. See an example in the screenshot. One cant mine the dirt around the structure. It doesnt add value to the game. Only the man-made structure should not be minable. Further Examples: ground under SC-9928
2. Protected areas of rivers: change, like already said above, the terrain colour.
While i got used to it, the current state is unsatisfying.
