What's the point of the 4 extra tiles in the new command module


Recommended Posts

It does somewhat help.

Radiation outside those tiles is 90-95 rads, and something like 30-40 below extra row.

90 rads is very close to the limit dupes can handle per day (100), so if you are building a fresh colony, lets say in a 150-rad zone, dupplicant on the surface will immediately start accumulating rads and won't be able to get rid of the surplus (not without curative tablets), but if your bed is under double layer, than dupplicant will have some extra wiggle room, potentially you can 'bench' dupplicant to get rid of the radiation.

I just don't seriously get why the dupes would design their module to only cover the very center of the rocket with an extra layer. Its not like the dupes will only stand in those spots the whole rocket mission. I could at least get if the extra layer went to where the spacefarer ports were, but as is now it seems quite pointless.

Exactly. You can also add some shielding inside the rocket, preferably via lead tiles.

Rockets already are very small in design and getting everything you need on board to keep your dupe in a somewhat comfortable manner. They should just make command modules at that point 7x10

You can add shielding in places where you would have airflow tiles otherwise. It really is not a problem.

Dupes... most stuff they do doesn`t make much sense, why would their design suddenly make sense?

But anyway looking from an irl perspective, the rocket is a complicated machine and some of the stuff around it might serve other purposes like the extra layer might simulate the modules above or extra reinforcements on the module so it doesn`t crack under pressure. Sometimes effects emerge from unrelated things creating new problems or fixing them. The extra tiles capture that situation.
