Very frustrated with Spacebase, when is the official release, with bug fixes and more features?!
I've tried to build like 10+ bases in various sectors and before I can even get anything going beyond a refinery, a basic pub, life support, and airlock, either my base is destroyed by asteriods, or my people starve or die of exhaustion. Is there a way to actually build a large base? Am I just not doing things in the correct order? Is there some trick? I am VERY frustrated....

gotta take care of the AI so they take care of you... My base is sitting at 84 people with a cap of like 195 and only crashes due to bugs. Below is a link to a screenshoot of my current base.

put tvs in the halls and plants everywhere then try to focus them best based off of the AI's likes and strengths. Dont make a coward a security guard in that sense of logic. Have both food replicators and a garden for grown food and plenty of bartenders to serve. Builders always tend to become sad, they are best used as a builder and another type switched back and forth, then they will remain in a better mood. Have a weight room for them to work out at and you should be golden.

I like to also use my builders in the Garden. Working in the garden alone tends to make the AI happy. So this is a good switch for them just switch them back later when you building more things. I leave most builders in their secondary job if I am not actually building anything. This keeps them active and somewhat happy.

Okay thanks! I didn't see replicators on the menu. I only saw bars, stoves, and fridges. Are they elsewhere? And you say I need a bartender or people won't eat?

food replicators are listed on the list of items that can be built anywhere just like plants, monitors, emergency alarms and fire extinguishers. I would put at least one fire extinguisher in every room.

You need a bartender to serve drinks as well as serve food once you have a garden. Botinists will grow the food harvest it and put it into the fridge, the bartenders then take that food, cook it and serve it up.

I was looking to get thsi game, but just by your screenshot I can tell it would be a waste of time at this moment.
A space station that is all one level? Really? It is in space right? Can you build multiple levels or is it like building a one story house? Also, it appears that people are either getting bored or frustrated quickly.
Thanks for all the input in ther forums, I will stay away from this for a while longer.

it is a fun game but yea still in alpha so there are problems here and there to overcome. If you dont like that sort of thing then definatly wait till its done. I enjoy that sort of thing at times so I does me well to troubleshoot and find a way around something if I can.

I know they want to make it multiple floor levels in the future but not sure when they will attempt to impliment it.

It's fun, but has a significant learning curve and expect to lose many bases before you are succesful...

So if I build a food replicator, they will start eating? One of my main problems is starvation. I swear I didn't see replicators on the construct menu...

Yea I always build one food replicator when I start my base. You wont need the bartenders till you start to expand and have a garden and enough people to suport that garden.

Okay cool. I appreciate the tips!
Vex Malleus Mar 26, 2014 @ 12:12pm 
Okay I found the replicators, phew, thanks again!!
