Wow, good on you, Doctor ;D .
General Discussion / Re: This forum is too boring...

As a user, you share the responsibility to make the forum interesting ^^' .

In my case, RimWorld was simply far more interesting, in the Alpha and Beta days.
For most games, single-core performance is the top metric ^^ .

It wouldn't be the same, not even close.
I'm pretty sure corpses do not generate wealth, unless they are butchered for meat.

Note, however, that the game scales raid threat over time, not just via actual colony wealth alone.  Perhaps you are seeing this mechanism in action?

The reason is game balance, that simple.  It's not reflective of real life; even a beefy iron tube would be enough for a mortar,which isn't rifled, unlike most more-standard artillery, and has MUCH lower breech pressures.  But making mortars too easy to build greatly changes game balance ;) .
General Discussion / Re: Have you eaten RL Pemmican?

Traditional pemmican, quite frankly, tastes like horrid, very greasy jerky.
This kind of thing is likely to forever remain the province of mods, frankly.
You're not supposed to get an email; it registers your game *directly* with Steam.  You should check your Steam library :D .
First off, you stepped on a landmine here.  It's not your fault that you didn't know, particularly, BUT the reaction is also quite justified, in my opinion; we've heard quite enough about this for years, thanks.

Second, the game does support both hetero- and homosexual pawns; bisexuality isn't directly supported but (AFAIK) there's mods for that.  There's no real depth to sexuality in this game, however, beyond "gettin' some lovin'" boosting pawns' mood; this molehill doesn't need to be a mountain.

Please note that there are NO penalties for either preference, beyond lonely pawns not getting relationship buffs, if they cannot find an appropriate partner; seems pretty close to real life, frankly.  While bisexuality is not directly represented w/o mods, there's only so fine-grained any sim can be; relax.

That's exactly what firefoam poppers are for, notably.  They are part of the base game.
I think a large part of the appeal is *intensity* of play.  More events/raids/what-have-you happen with more colonists, that simple.
There's a fine line to walk here.  TOO MUCH info can easily be even more of a barrier than not enough, frankly, at least if it's at a "top" layer (displayed all the time).

THAT is how a good dev handles things. ;D

Well done, Tynan.

If/when you identify the problem mod(s), remember that *changing the load order* can often resolve otherwise intractable issues.
