All of these are great responses, and i apologize for my slow response as i don't frequent the forums. i have 21 dupes and 15 critters, but i use to have loads more (i'm running out of food lmao, all my pips starved bc of heat on the trees), i have mined out massive parts of the map, and had no airlocks anywhere except geysers because i'm not worried about weird gases in my base - until now lmao. so yeah to say the least, gas is mixed everywhere. now i have been starting to make my storage containers only one material - since my dupes decided delivering 52.4 grams at a time (example number) was smart, when they have the max capacity of carrying. I've started to go the 'permasuit' route (where when dupes wake they put on atmosuits), however, i think this was my dumbest decision this whole play through. Although i'm on cycle 791, and progressing greatly, i think i'm going to restart with the new advice in mind (also because i only have 500k kcal left and that will last no time at all) heat has taken over everything from me not insulating my **5 Aquatuners** because i thought they only got up to around 200F (they're 314F currently lmao), thank you all for the helpful tips have a good day.
I have 2x8 gigs at 3200 mhz in slot 2 and 4 (as per MOBO manual)
