    Default Be apart of my "Oxygen Not Included" Colony!

    Hey guys. Thought I'd post this here too, but I'm looking to do a game of "Oxygen Not Included" as a Let's Play and show the progress of surviving in a desolate asteroid in nowhere space! But I realized, I'm really bad at names and would likely give them boring names to play with. So instead, I decided to look to other's, mainly you! If you are interested in this game, or be apart of something mediocre great, then please post in this thread and let me know! I'll include you as one of my duplicants and you can watch as you run around and stave off disaster after disaster. Here's a video I made on the topic:



    Hope to see you all there!

    To be fair, so far in my plathrough there's pretty much only two real ways to die for a duplicant;
    -Slimelung disease
    -Starving.

    Diseases are very easy to treat if you go fast enough tho, so it's mostly the later ... Which does inlude a good portion of 'Duplicant being too stupid to eat while they are starving'
    ("Oh, I'm starving I should really go eat... after I get a massage, it's my break ! Oh, finaly a ration I should eat it right n..., oh its nightime, better imediatly go for a good night sleep from which i'm sure I'm sure I'll wake up, no problems.")

    Alright. That's 3 people. Enough for an initial start of a colony. I'll start playing soon, and convert this thread into a let's play. If anyone joins and wants to be included in the colony as well, I will be accepting more duplicants throughout the game and will include your name when I print them out.

    Sure! You'll be the first new printed Duplicant to the colony. I'll try to explain the game as I play so you can follow along.

    I already have a colony of 6 people. So I need 2 more volunteers for future episodes. I'll rename the new guys who came in to the next couple people who say they are interested.

    It's a limited resource management game focusing on the needs of multiple individual people in a colony. Life Expectancy is based on how much you trust me to manage all the needs and prevent it from spiraling out of control, such as making sure there is enough oxygen to breathe, or there is enough food for everyone, or any number of other kind of screw ups I could do. But I'm sure you have nothing to worry about.

    Well, things have sure changed a lot since the last time I watched any of this...

    That's a shame. Your Hatch managed to fall down when that sand fell into the ladder hole... and then fell into the single lower spot in the terrain, where the water pooled, so it drowned. At least you got some meat out of it, I guess?
    (And I see you didn't notice it, given that you comment on the lack of Hatches later.)

    Hilariously, being good at Research and Digging is actually pretty applicable to me. I'm trained as an archaeologist in real life.

    My vote, for what it's worth, is try to do something spectacular with this colony. While I appreciate a well run colony as much as the next guy, trying to do something ridiculous and getting us all killed is hilarious.

    Haha! Maybe. Perhaps as a final farewell to this colony before the next major update breaks the game.

    Your duplicants have no access to your other water pool with dirty water in it, because you didn't want to kill your hatch to make the ladder down there. So by the time you get there, that whole pool of water will be germ-ridden.

    You're still doing better than I ever have, so way to go.

    I'm assuming your next major step up is going to be plumbing, since you are setting up a stinky water tank, and converting to actual toilets in your bathroom?

    How do you plan on using that geyser? It's passive water generation, but I'm not sure if it is going to produce enough to support a base. Especially not if you plan on running an electrolyzer to run hydrogen generators and oxygen production.

    I keep wanting to play, but haven't. I have played Starbase df-9, a bit, and its always fun to watch my inevitable failure.

    Oh, good. Getting better at not drowning your Hatches.

    For the polluted water, can your duplicants clean it up when it's submerged like that? If not, would it be possible (if inefficient) to build tiles above it, drain the floor under it, then mop it up that way?

    Currently Liquids don't mix. So if the quantity of liquid is small enough to mop normally, then they'd be able to mop it up under the liquid surrounding it.

    Nothing, be they Liquid, solids or gases mix in this game. And you can only have one type per squarre. (Note that solid that hae been dug up and liquid in bottle, count as objet , those you can have plenty per squares as they dn't intert wth the physic system)

    That's why for example it's possible to use water pools to make airlocks in this game

    This is also why gases behave as they do, since they don't mix, they intead sort of 'push' each others acording to their moleular mass and that why the heavier ones like methnae chlorine and CO2 invaiably end up at he botom of you base while oxygen and hydrogen tend to float on the top levels very quickly (and alway slightly .

    That's also part of why water is a finite resource in this game, there is no air humidity (there are steam and ice but they more work by entire square being converted), transpiration and concentration instead you have the 'abstraction of water' becoming 'polluted water' and plants farming and the 'microbe musher' food prepartion gthings are water black holes.

    Yes, it's kind of stupid, and lead to some very weird behaviors, but it will very likely not be changed as it would require to recode a central mechanic of the game in what is pretty late in alpha now and also accoding to the devellopers, ia mo accuat gas simulation would kill processors due to 'too many calculations per squares) an since the game is well, just that, a game, not a simulaton the currentmdel works well enough.

    (I do whish you could at least disolve chlorine into waterto make to make it chlorinated water to kill germ as an alternative to heat ot jsut waiting given how much heat management is amjor ssue rght now but what can ya do)

    So there's a finite duration to any game based on a finite amount of water existing within the world, with a net negative on each cycle due to food generation?

    Ah, okay. I knew they didn't mix, but I didn't realize mopping only counted the amount in there. I figured that since it was graphically filling the entire square, that it wouldn't be moppable anymore. (I guess the player that I'd based that data off of when he tried that simply had too much polluted water in the area to mop.) Good to know.

    If you have a water/steam geyser, then you have (I'm pretty sure) infinite water. I don't believe they have a limit. You, uh, just have the issue of needing to cool it. I believe excessive heat is the true limiter.

    Dupes do that by existing, so you get one or the other.
