Nidhoggur Posted June 4, 2017 Share Posted June 4, 2017 So, first of all, I like what this game has to offer (and most Klei games, for that matter). The liquid and gas systems are super cool, the latter I haven't really seen in any game before. The temperature, electricity, food are all handled well and clear. But when I went around to look at some of the colonies of other folks, I saw things like this: (this one is just a random screenshot from google) Seriously. Is this a museum simulator or something? I can understand why the decor system is in place - to add an additional challenge besides actual food, and oxygen and what not. And this purpose is great. I totally love managing complex stuff. But at the moment, solving stress is less of a clever challenge and more of a bruteforce solution. Yay, let's spam paintings! I suppose some people would ask now "so, what's wrong with that? If we need more water, we build more pumps. If we need more decor, we build more statues". Well, from an objective, solely rational standpoint, it's true. But that... Doesn't really feel like a space colony to me. Also, I understand that the game is in Early Access, so maybe features will be added, that will change the situation. So what do you propose? Here are a few suggestions: Give us wallpaper! For real So that it can be put on a wall behind all objects, and look pretty. (it will probably hinder the readability of gasses in a room a bit, but we have overlays) What if we had upgraded versions of batteries, generators and stuff, that add to decor, rather than subtract from it. Like a super cool-looking sci-fi pump, that duplicants will love to set the eyes on. Use the textile station to make lovely blankets for beds, and pretty tablecloths for mess tables, that add decor bonuses to said objects Colonywide decor buildings, that rise decor everywhere, but can only be built once. Something like a world wonder in civ games. Think giant statue, or a fountain, or stuff like that. Make diminishing returns from same decor objects. Say, one painting per room is nice. Two, is fine. Three is marginally better. Everything more than that is negligible. Maybe a bigger bonus to regular tile decor from materials? More varied decor objects and decor combos? Like, placing a painting near a vase gives bonus decor. *** Here, thanks for reading this far. Maybe you have better ideas. Lemme know your thoughts.
