Why do robots take breaks??
PL, I get that my colonists need some down time to exercise and destress, and they have to sleep, but WHY do the robots stop working when the colonists are sleeping or on a break??
Robots don't need sleep or breaks. They SHOULD be working constantly...

I'll have to look into this. Robots should continue working during non applicable schedule periods (sleep/eating). In the mean time you should be able to assigned your robots to a new schedule with all the hours set to free time.
" In the mean time you should be able to assigned your robots to a new schedule with all the hours set to free time."
How do I do this?
Thanks so much for responding so quickly!!

Press tab to open up colonist management and under Colonists->Schedules press the Create Schedule button to create a new schedule. Hours can be re-assigned by selecting the activity type at the top right and then clicking the hours you want to assign to that activity. Click the assign button on the new schedule to assign your robots to that schedule. Any newly created robots will need to be assigned to this schedule as well. Hope that helps.
Thanks so much! That did the trick. Apparently, the robots follow the same schedule as the colonists, unless we create a new Schedule for the 'bots.
Funny, all the time I spend playing this game, and I never noticed that Schedule option before.....
