Jonathan Hoffman Posted March 14, 2017 Share Posted March 14, 2017 So for me the biggest frustration with the late game is how idiotic Dupes can be about getting stuff done. It appears that in the late game, despite having 20 dupes, nothing ever gets finished, even when I bump the priority. This is especially true with tasks that are far away from the center of the base. What happens is that a single dupe will run for five minutes out to the point that they need to go, they'll dig one square or build one ladder, then they'll turn around and head back to some other stupid task in the center of the base. So all 20 of my dupes are strung out in a line, spending 90% of their time walking back and forth, rather than just a few of them focusing 100% on the task at hand. I figured maybe building outhouses, storage chests, and cots nearer to their work area would also help the dupes to stay in the region to get the task done, but the dupes for the most part didn't notice it (even though they didn't have assigned cots). AND, on top of that, some of the dupes from the center of the base started walking 10 miles out, JUST to use the outhouses, even though there were perfectly good outhouses in the center of the base. What it boils down to is a very fun early game experience, where everything you assign gets done with ease - and incredible frustration in the late game because the dupes can't for the life of them figure out how to stick to a task that is far away from the base. And as the game progresses you have to extend further and further out for all the resources you need to survive. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
