Captain Gimpy, build living quarters first thing after you build the workshop. Beds will help massively with morale. For hydroponics, try a 3x3 or 4x3 room surrounded by stone with a single worklight in the center. This should keep the temperature down to around 10c hopefully. Apparently plants LOVE being at fifty degrees farenheit and will all sprout massive amounts of rot and mold at 69 degrees farenheit.

It's stupid but it's how the game works at the moment and at least can be worked around. As an aside, viewscreens seem to be useless in terms of improving morale. Plants might work, the decorative ones. And if they don't they at least make some oxygen. I think he even removed the chance of them getting blight. (It's kinda ridiculous that he implemented the blight feature without giving us a skill so that people could tend and remedy the problem.)

colonists still dont know how to drink water and start dying. The hydroponics still die for random resons and cannot be sustained. I cant get any further than getting food, workshop and storage to where it needs to be before everyone dies of starvation or dehydration. patch didnt do anything. peoplr are still needy damn near mediately and when i'm trying to get things working and built, they are not building and keep messaging me.

Played some 0.59 this evening and got much further on the tutorial (that's my goto baseline) than previously. Colonists started dying before building food-prep stations, but I'm pretty sure that was my own fault.

Thanks for your continued efforts :)

Can you please, when you post images like this, use JPEGs instead of monster 4-5MB PNGs that take forever to download?

"Minerals in the hopper now have a slightly higher needs fulfilment than those in the storage room. " This should be reversed. Colonists should want to clean up the floor of the Storage Room first and remove those minerals, rather than take them out of the neat and tidy storage of the hopper.

I've been a backer since the beginning, but never really tried Maia. This weekend I am going to do some serious playthrough and write an honest review of the game.

Thanks guys. Now if we can just get the colonists to stop standing by the work table / bed / medical doing fookall till they drop dead of either dehydration or starvation.
