Smoothing walls?
Hi, as I jumped directly from DF, I am not "familiar" with mostly external non mountain estructures so I just dig up and set my living zone in the mines/caves. (6x6 with battery and lamp zones connected with a door to the main hallway).

Now, the enviroment is killing my colonist's moods, and in DF you could "smooth" the walls so it looks awesome and after that you could even create art on them. =)

Is there anyway to do it in RW or the only way it's to turn down (mine) the wall and then build another one?. =)

Also... need more power but I can't find components to make more generators.... anyway to "create" them?.
Been having 3 times these visitors... but they don't bring almost anything to buy.

*ALSO!!!!, in another game I created a lot of statues... (The Vomit #63 one was... well... disturbing and another superior and greate statue of one of my hunter colonists in their great achievement and utopical hunt of... a squirrel. ¬¬'). I thought I could get some silver with them but, no matter how many visitors I had, (they were in the standard stockpile), none with the option to actually sell it... so, is there any use of art as comercial?. O.o

You can smooth floors, but not walls,

Components are found in ship chings and machinery bits scatered all over the map.
One of the later game researches unlocks the ability to build them.
Only a few merchants buy statues (ideally orbital traders), but they can sold for a very nice profit.

Yeah, smooth the floors and make sure its set as a home zone and people are set to clean. Dirt or rocks make colonists unhappy aswell.

Latter on when you get stoneworking (I would say get it early) make your entrance from granite and lay stone floors.

Sadly you cannot make walls (or pilars being used to stop cave-ins) into art. Also going into mountains is good for starters, but make sure your batterys are cooled, if they get too hot they may explode or short curcit (lots of wires in battery rooms so fires are likely) set them up so your colonists can reach both sides of the batterys since they cant climb over them.
