New resource idea with buildings: Oxygen - o2
#1
Lightbulb 
Got me thinking that the atmosphere on each planet is a combination of single gasses yet none are directly harvested from it apart from water which is 2 elements/gasses and the one major item a human needs in space is oxygen which is not covered much
(or i just haven't got that far in the game yet and i've not seen it and created this topic for nothing Huh Big Grin )

So i did this ....

The usage and resource points may be wrong for trade so ill leave that to Bast to choose if implemented into game, i will also add building graphics next just wanted to brain fart this onto something before i forget it.

Actually no. Atmosphere is only used to unlock new levels of building, terraforming and to extract water. There is no other use for it.
Your ideas could work. Why not. Keep going!

I meant once you've progressed so far and atmos is already being produced which happens as soon as the bot shops built so it does come into the game pretty quick, so i started with high end buildings mainly because i couldnt think of anything at the time ... if anyones got some lower build cost ideas please chip in who knows it could be in the next few updates

New housing complex
Earthlike apartments

Its the upgrade to the domed complexs we have now but the domes are gone and the entire building has a fishtank around it ,instead of 26 it holds 4 workers and 77 colonists but uses oxgen food water.

Then when 5m atmos is reached you could upgrade it again to open air status and it will swap oxygen for ant paste (lol) or some other durable 2 workers will get the sack and it will hold 125 people

If implemented it could also be a consumable during advanced steel production.... think blast furnace.

Thanks Nunez Wink i tried to match the colours with the game but also make them stand out so it will break the skylines up a touch

Brilliant idea Thoth and could possibly lead to a ultra refined steel which is used in the making of robots? and Drones?

coming from space engineers view
yeah bottled oxygen to keep colonists alive on unterraformed planets

also come from space engineers a machine that splits the water into hydrogen and oxygen.
....the hydrogen is used for hydrogen thrusters but in this case we have hydrogen reactors

A low gravity disco... that sounds cool!

Hi. Great game. Don't know where to put suggestions, but here they go: firedrill seems critical for resetting colonists, keeping thier commute short and happiness going. I suggest it to become an option of the lander. And secondly, more entertainment! Maybe a low gravity disco. Smile Thanks!

has the mechanic that makes colonists sick changed?

Present symbol on lower right edge of your game

Where do you find the gifts in my colony? It keeps saying that I've been sent a gift, but can't find where to get them
avatar
if you login to fbook and then select cloud save from the options menu in game (stats is the menu i think) it should then save game and then you can play on other pcs where you left off .... mobiles are a bit shaky in this regard so ive been told
avatar
go into documents on pc then look for my colony folder and backup the saves in there
avatar
you should always make a backup of your svaes because the game is still in beta mode
avatar
And now its not even loading on my current computer
avatar
I started a colony at home and it became massive, tried opening the app after logging in on another computer and it doesnt show up
avatar
Hey guys. Are you able to open the game from another computer if you're logging in to gmail and your fb account?
avatar
Ive noticed my bots wont harvest if they get too far away from the drop off point and building reactors all over the map would be a huge waste, same with aluminum

thats what I was a fraid of
