Gold amalgam is the best material to use to build pumps. Especially for geysers. 

Granite is a great insulator.

There's more than enough copper ore in the starting biome.

Oops. For some reason I thought iron ore gave the same overheat bonus as Gold amalgam. 

@chemie I must be a noob then :(

Spoiler

But I do save most of my Gold for metal tile purposes

The best way to avoid slimelung infections is to fill your entire base with chlorine.

 

When you have a hot room, you want to insulate, make sure to add steel doors to allow your dupes to access the room.

The starting food keeps for a long time, no need to think about food for a while. 

One toilet is enough, damn dupes can just hold it!

Dig aggressively in all directions right from the beginning. Everything else is not urgent. You want to know what is out there as soon as possible!

You don't need exo-suits. They are just a hassle. Dupes can hold their breath long enough for the oil-biome and for space!

Always use a arcade machine over the jukebox. It uses more power, generates more heat, and only entertains 2 dupes instead of up to 5 which are all great traits.

Also, since the game has been out for 2 years, use google and watch 2 year old you tube how to play videos....not much has changed.

Make sure to take new dupes at every possible opportunity, so you can have lots of workers.

always get flatulent dupes, the natural gas they produce will keep your generators running forever

Natural gas generators are sensitive to temperature. Build them out of gold amalgam, place them in an ice biome on mesh tiles to avoid flooding and keep the air pressure low.

Shine bug ranching pays off in the long run. Best to get started early with it.

You can't be to obvious or they will figure it out, I'd try and be sneaky.

Never use bridges, they cause packet flow problems and slow down the game.

Try not to use atmo suits, your dupes can't improve their stats while wearing them.

Never upgrade past basic power wire it's a waste, don't use transformers they leech power and just use more power generators for every separate grid.

Sleet wheat should be your highest priority when you start the game.

Electrolizer are a trap, stick with algae and farm pufts.... ok I'm going to stop now, I need a shower.

Plant weezwort everywhere. it's like free air conditioning but with a décor bonus!

Rush Ore scrubbers before even thinking about exploring the slime biome, it's the most practical way to keep slime lung off of your base.

Refrigerators will keep your food from spoiling indefinitely.

Crafting all medicines is a must in case you get any of your duplicants sick (subject to change If they revert diseases symptoms to pre-MKIII).
