Tools should be different.

I think bronze/brass is incorrectly better than steel. In fact in reality bronze is softer than steel and therefore a worse tool metal. Iron on the other hand is fairly similar to bronze but lacks the corrosion resistance. Crude tools should be made from stone.

The tool lineup in terms of durability should go like this. Crude/Iron/Bronze/Steel. A way you can cheapen bronze a bit, is make the a smaller mine for mining both tin and copper and the "iron smelter" should able to smelt any ore. As iron is actually harder to smelt than tin/copper, or gold/silver for that matter. This makes trade a more viable option for "Adam/Eve" starts.

The advantages of making bronze products should be:

Decoration (nothing beats bronze statues and what not nice pretty golden/red color)

Trade- copper is actually rarer than iron. Therefore their tools/products pricier.

Because Colonial Charter was created over a period of time, I think it resulted in products being added without rebalancing the group of similar items in many cases.  Rebalancing the entire mod would be a huge undertaking and would certainly result in some people being happier while others would be really upset.  Honestly, it is a no win proposition.

Personally (which isn't any more or less valid than your recommendation), as long as I know which items are good > better > best, I can deal with it. Change it and my whole knowledge base is thrown for a loop.

Some day, the Black Liquid Team may decide to rebalance this huge mod, but there are no plans for that currently.

I could be wrong, but I think Bronze is actually in MegaMod but not in CC, where we have rough, iron and steel tools "only". So it's not CC-balancing it's consistency issues between mods.

In CC, Bronze Tools are made by the Foundry and Forge and not at a Blacksmith.  Sort of makes them hard to find.
