Jetpacks - So much fun without ladders

Recommended Posts

Its sooo much fun now doing large builds,

do not have to worry about ladders anymore - Superb for large projects :)

Would be great if Klei can add some jetpack ignition fire and puffs of smoke to them, to get the FPS a bit further down. I also like the downside that the Jetpacks produce lots of carbon dioxide...

Once you breach the surface, dupes will get killed in the dozens, bceause the fly somewhere, with almost dpleted fuel, and wont come back. 

As much fun as they are, currently i dont use them.

While I agree with your original point, I must make one comment... What the hell are you building?

It looks like a ridiculously over-complex parallel gas storage system. You could just as easily connect them all in series, or use something like this for infinite gas storage:

Some storage supply for my 10 rockets project...I play the game for my way of fun. Give me 20 parts for a nuclear reactor, Im ready for fallout ! :D

Its always hot and way over the top in my 200 dupes sauna club.

The dupe flight training school...

Bypassing training after 10 minutes in the game, I dont do food or research anymore - It got too boring and tedious. Need some endgame challenges, Im hoping for radioactivity & fire someday + desaster events + easier mass production of food for more than 100 dupes ( mass slime ) + world gen seed setting "Insame amount of water". If I get those things, then I`ll play again without debug. Without those things the debug mode is far greater joy for me, creating my own desasters and fixing them, ramping everything up to the max on mass production. Fun fun fun, send me some Alien encounters, coop with another player...Battling stuff in space !

I would so love to be able trade all products via space port ( to be built by the player ), that would be awesome. :p

For all these stray rocketeers, I started spacing everything far out in the map for easy flight navigation, Ive added plastic recovery ladders so that they find home after crashing.

Save-me-100 hours-playtime-spawn on my new maps, 1.5 million calories. I rather spend my playtime on other things in the game, which I enjoy much more...Also having no food production gives more FPS for other game content with a hundred dupes.

...Jetpackers exhausting Carbon Dioxide, an interesting new problem to deal with.

Running out of fuel is often down to "Sleeping while flying" - Dont drink and drive !

IMHO constructing in space is much more fun now :)

Once one has steel and the jetpack logistics, it has never been easier to block the sky with a bunker wall and mining it all away at once. The player can then start their construction work beneath this fast`n`safe bunker shield. It would be very nice if goods could be traded via tradeport ( and rockets ), as an example exchanging water for slime, slime for steel and whatnot as examples. I play in debug as sooner or later a certain thing ends up in a finite dead end on some resources.

As for now you can exchange petroleum, steam, oxylite and some other stuff for resources from other asteroids. Lacks the trade mechanics but serves as a way to renew some stuff. Are there still resources you can`t renew or get from space?

Thank you very much for that information, Sasza22 :)

I still havent started a rocket - Right now I want to create a new fresh map of 4x the size. Yes, what I would need is my beloved Slime. I had a mushroom farm which was 40 hours work, it was fully automated and the size of 4 screens ( I built it without debug, played over 1000 cycles on that map ). Having thousands of Pufts was no option to me, I rather spend the FPS and map size on something else joyful.

So if Klei maybe steps over this thread, please enable to trade/exchange/get to more resource types. Thank you. Wishing a nice weekend.
