What is the advantage? I mean I like writing stuff but is there actually any advantage on the gameplay side?


Oh absolutely. If you keep your Datalinks updated, I won't have to sift back through people's posts to find where they built things, what they've constructed, and whatnot. Ideally everyone will have a single Datalinks post where everything is collated, that I can use as a quick reference.

For sure - but it is a good habit to get in. Once you've made three Bases, each of which has a dozen buildings and five different battalions defending them, I don't want to have to go back through nine pages of IC posts to find if you built your Hydroelectric Sump on an Infested River Valley or a Salish Delta.

Just a quick question, I am seeing River Valley and Lush Mismaic River Valley, not just Lush River Valley in the land types spoiler.

Ah, that would be a River Valley which is Lush, but not Miasmatic!

Best is I get Surface Mine since that will give me material which I would need to construct a Hydronopics Chamber to get food. However I don't have rugged land neither do I see any land that has the rugged keyword, which is required. So what's going on!?

Alas, the winds did not blow a’right :P G, I am stuck in a graduation rehearsal for the next 3 hours, so you might have to retro me in if you don’t mind terribly.

Hm, curious. I wonder if you can consult with the posts of other RPers to determine where they are siting their surface mines?

Good advice though I quote this line:
Surface Mine: Fortunately, a world of untapped natural resources is rich in mining potential. (2 Industry or 5 Labor) + 1 Industry per existing Surface Mine. Any Rugged Land. 2 Workers may extract one Ore (1 Material), or one Worker may extract one Ore (1 Material) while using 1 Energy.


"Find in page"ed rugged and no response.

I wonder if you can think of any synonyms to "Rugged", perhaps ones which are in the Land list?

Rough sounds like the most similar. Is that what you meant by rugged land?

Part of me wants to say somethings sometimes when I see people do things that are probably not optimal, but another part doesn't want to do that because everything that helps me catch up is good.

A fuzzy nod in the direction of "the next twelve hours".

Looks like the half-decade long eronic nightmare is over. Things can get better now.

Does creating Scouts and Militia consume a section in their creation? I assume so, but I’m checking since it’s not explicitly mentioned.

More relevant for me given my shiny new tech: recon rovers cost 2 Industry and 2 Energy and just straight up behave like 2 explorers, right? That’s what it seems like from your actions, G. …Why would I ever recruit scouts again?

Indeed, indeed.

Momentary lapses of judgement? Intermittent resource crunches?

And, of course, the lack of a Military Fabber

Scouts have some use as a military unit - and they also don't consume food or housing or produce negative harmony, while still providing a useful function.

I mean, it's a niche case, but I think they're not totally useless.
