Brief information to creating a self-sufficient colony utilizing solely the preliminary rocket and funding for pods. No further colonists, resupplies, interacting with different factions, or promoting of uncommon supplies.
Church of the Self-Adequate Ark Information
Since I began taking part in the sport, one in all issues I needed to do was simulate making a colony in one other photo voltaic system. The journey out to the planet would primarily be a technique. You may ship an preliminary rocket and wave of pods, however no further colonists, re-supplies, interacting with different factions, or promoting of uncommon metals. As soon as you utilize up your preliminary funding on rocket cargo and pods in the beginning of the map, you need to survive by yourself. Church of the New Ark was a pure match when it comes to role-play so after a bunch of trial and error, I lastly managed to nail down my preliminary cargo loadout and early construct order. Word that DLC is required.
Beginning location: 4 S, 108 E;
Beginning Sq.: D2
Mission Sponsor: Church of The New Ark
Guidelines: Starvation, Final Ark, No Rivals
Rocket: Moisture Vaporator, Gasoline Refinery, Considered one of every RC automobile, 9 x Drones, 1 x Probe
5x Provide Pods: Small Machine Components Manufacturing facility, Small Electronics Manufacturing facility, Drone Hub, 20 x electronics, 25 x polymers, 25 x machine elements, 2 x Drones
1x Ark Pod (after dome is constructed): Medics, Geologists, Engineers (No Center-Aged, Vegans, or Avid gamers)
Whenever you arrange the initially colony buildings, crucial factor to recollect is to not construct something that requires superior assets (for development or upkeep) except you completely should have it. Though the 20-25 of every that you just begin out with seams like a good quantity, you might be probably going to should go 30-40 sols with out producing any of them. For instance, though you may have a drone hub prefab, I solely constructed it once I was on the point of use my rocket for a planetary mission. Additionally, reduce the batteries and wind generators and no sterling turbines.
Starter Micro Dome: Residing Complicated, Infirmary, Ranch, Diner, Small Grocer, 2 x small gardens
You’ll have 4 empty areas to make use of for a passage and the small machine elements manufacturing unit after getting two births. For the ranch you’ll want to make use of chickens initially for water consumption then ultimately progress as much as turkeys when you get related to a water extractor. Ensure that your diner and grocer are staffed throughout each day shifts or else you lose an excessive amount of consolation from lack of providers.
Enlargement to Self-Sufficiency
When you begin your machine elements manufacturing unit you may construct one other micro dome, join the 2, then kick the kids out (see connected image). Analysis is primarily achieved via scanning anomalies, so don’t be afraid to do a pair seize meteor planetary missions to hurry your self via some key ones (like demolition, RC explorer analysis, and Polymer manufacturing unit) and get some polymers. When you get a polymer manufacturing unit and uncommon metals extractor, chances are you’ll have to rotate your workforce round to the completely different manufacturing amenities when you await extra kids to enter the workforce. For instance, the turkeys will initially produce far more meals than you want, so you may cycle the employees to different buildings for a pair a sols after every harvest. Finally you’ll have the ability construct a bigger dome and assemble the small electronics manufacturing unit. At this level you need to be CAUTIOUSLY self-sufficient. Don’t out-build your manufacturing functionality and hold a good useful resource reserve for disasters. I made the error of retaining gas at a common depot and a meteor hit it and it blew up together with all my electronics and machine elements (I had like 15 or so of every). Fortunately each factories had been nonetheless working tremendous so I pulled out of it, nevertheless it was a scary second initially.
I’m positive there are a number of methods to deal with this kind of situation (particularly when you selected a special sponsor), however I figured I’d share what labored for me. Be happy to throw in your inputs or comparable experiences!
