Oxygen Not Included

  1. If you want a challenge, do a playthrough trying to get every achievement. I did it on Oasisse and it definitely changed how I played. Not being able to use coal or wood burners early made it so I had almost no oxygen for the first 100 cycles. Can't plant anything so you have to deal with wild growing oxyferns which aren't good at making oxygen or removing carbon dioxide. Gotta risk heat stroke to get to wild growing plants outside of the starting biome. After getting Locavore and Carnivore it becomes much easier, but it's quite a challenge for the beginning of the game Probably add in Magma channels or something for extra heat.
  2. Locavore/Carnivore

    I got it on my Oasisse playthrough while also trying to get Super Sustainable, so it was a lot more difficult than it should be if you play on a less demanding asteroid without limiting your power supply. My seed is 1568020665 if you are interested. It was a forest biome for me so I deal with what I had, pips and hatches. I used pips to plant all the oxyferns I had in the lower section of my base and then sent them off to plant my nature reserves, pip ranches, and mealwood farm. I got a few lucky pacu packs and shove vole eggs so that made it fairly easy to have enough meat by setting up a shove vole ranch. Pips provided the dirt which fed my shove voles so I got plenty of eggs from them. Keeping them from escaping was a pain but I eventually surrounded them with pneumatic doors and that solved the issue. If you can get an auto digger that also helps deal with their dirt piles. Made a 4 outhouse bathroom which eventually became a 2 outhouse bathroom which quickly became a lavatory. Two of the outhouses became my original morb spawners to help deal with our low oxygen issue. Eventually all four were morb spawners. Never had good oxygen during the first 100 cycles but it was enough that no one died. Digging out and finding algae or printing it helped too but only if you have water, hence the quick lavatory setup to help generate some water. I had a lucky polluted water vent within view of the printing pod, so that was free water and polluted o2 as well to help deal with no oxygen. A few screen away where two cool slush geysers but I didn't discover them until cycle 50 or something so I didn't really use them. For incubators, I took advantage of automation. With a clock sensor and the duplicate motion sensor, you can set up a system that only powers a few incubators at a time for a few seconds which is just enough for them to lullaby the eggs and then turn off. I have these at priority 9 so that they are taken care of immediately. I set the activation time of the clock sensor to turn on while my rancher dupe was taking a shower, so that once he finishes that he immediately runs to these. The duration is 7 seconds but could be less depending how far away your showers/bedrooms are. I didn't set up electrolyzers until after cycle 100, but with that polluted water vent it wouldn't be that difficult. That would get your hydrogen power early to free up dupes for other tasks. I recommend getting a few dupes that are binge eaters. I threw them in atmosuits (click on atmosuit and tell them to equip it) near the end and didn't let them use the bathroom. That's 40% stress a cycle which quickly will stress them out and triggers them. If you can, dunk them in water first before putting them in a suit for more stress. I was able to squeak out the extra meat calories I needed with this trick. I also just started taking dupes around cycle 70 because I only had 5 dupes up until that point and needed more people consuming calories. Got Locavore around cycle 65 so then I went about planting my oxyferns to help deal with the carbon dioxde. I also had two bottomless stomach dupes as well but that wasn't intentional. If you have enough meat available to get the achievement, I recommend doing the binge eater atmosuit trick so you can unlock it early. I got it on cycle 97 which was way closer than I wanted it to be. A I wasn't sure if,my atmosuit binge eaters would obey their consumable tabs while stressed so I locked my meal lice/liceloaf off from them so my other dupes wouldn't starve accidentally. I ran into an issue where after binge eating, they would drop to 60% stress and then get back up to 100% stress again yet never trigger their insatiable hunger and the only way to fix it was to reload the game, so be aware of that if that issue hasn't been solved yet.
  3. Not sure how you have your automated miner coded, but being able to input a specific list of seeds might be something to add. Combine that with a list of missing seeds on the webpage and people could work together to fill them all in. You probably already have this in your list of "things to get to at some point".
  4. [Game Update] - 355043

    I'll just leave this here for you. Or you can try @Mullematsch approach instead.
  5. Wilds Pips not eating

    The wild Pips don't appear to eat the lumber. I gathered all my wild pips into a room with a few trees in it in hopes they'd stop messing with my storage and possibly produce some dirt as well. They aren't cramped or overcrowded, yet none have eaten from the trees in the room with them. Swept out the room to confirm and after a good 20 cycles I haven't seen a drop of dirt in that pen with the door to it locked to prevent dupes from messing with the test. There are 4 trees growing in said pen and I haven't noticed a change in them either. I happened to have a small undisturbed pocket with a wild pip in it and a tree and it too doesn't have any dirt on the ground. I don't know if it's just such a small amount that it isn't showing or if it's some other issue. I saw a wild pipsqueak eat off a branch, but I've yet to see an adult do that.
  6. Critter Feeder delivery is in mgs

    I've had it happen with both dupes delivering food (140 mg of meat from fridge to grill) and a sweeper arm doing the same thing (119 mg of raw egg from floor to grill). In both instances it appears as if the grill has almost enough to complete a dish, so they are trying to get enough but do it in mg instead of normal amounts. Even my Rock Crushing dupe with 16 Strength and +640KG carrying capacity is doing this, so I wonder if the grill/feeder itself is what's causing the problem.
  7. Game Randomly Atl Tabs

    I will be playing and it just randomly goes to my desktop as if I alt tabbed. It won't happen for a while after it occurs. I haven't noticed a pattern yet to it occuring.
  8. Undiggable dirt

    Ran into this a few times where my dupes dig up a piece of dirt and it never goes away. It's at 100% dug the entire time but never goes away and my dupe will literally stand their trying to dig it forever. It seems to go away if you reload the game but stays otherwise. And this is not the edge of the map stuff, it's stuff like sand or algae that won't let me dig it.
