Moved here from a topic i made:

Hey Ive thought about how you should change the trading screen.

The problem:
  • "Endless" list of items
  • Unsorted list
My suggestions:
     1. Add a simple amount:# to every kind of item
         Instead of "Pump Shotgun" listed 3 times it should say "Pump Shotgun x3"
         Or maybe a drop down list next to the buttons, displaying how many you have. If you select 10 and press sell it should sell 10.

     2. A Sorted list
         Now they look "randomly" listed. So the list could be sorted to display all pistols first then pump guns then .....

Forced labour for prisoners

Prisoners will be picked up by a warden and follow the warden around, helping him accomplish any other tasks he may have (such as construction) faster, though you run the risk of the prisoner trying to escape. Should also affect happiness in a negative way.

well with the new skills being added how about a cooking and a crafting station.  they would be some sort of bench like the research bench.   oh and its been said before but medical table for incapacitated colonists

"You can now dump meals in dumping areas"  also this should attract boomrats and squirrels to your dump

Colonists should make an effort to go around areas like graves and active fighting unless they absolutely have to.

I was thinking about wich thoughts influenced your goons.
And wi would like to see more since they seem in place.

I would like to see a more of them.
For negative thoughts i'd like to see:
- Working in the rain
- Working inside for to long
- Doing the same job all the time
- Only males/females
- OW NO COMBAT (for goons with terrible combat skills)

For positive thoughts i'd like to see:
- Working in the sun
- Nice nature (unbuild nature where your goons can walk around and leisure)
- Loves doing his job (when he has high skill/confidence in it)

- Make 'repairing' a separate task instead of having it part of 'construction'


This, a thousand times, this.

Not sure if these has already been suggested but two (hopefully) quick ideas.

 - Manual switches: Have it so that you can turn on and off power to a section of the base. You can already do this somewhat at present by using the dragbox or by arranging your power lines in a specific way and then selling crucial junctions and rebuilding but an on/off switch would be very nice.
 - Make it so that you are unable to sell buildings which are on fire, about to explode or during a raider attack. I've been watching a number of LPs and the amount of explosions you can avoid by selling stuff about to blow up is a bit unsettling.

An idea that I've not seen yet: Make it possible to place growing zones on top of graves (the current ones and/or the mass graves that have been suggested.) The zone could conceivably get a small boost as a 'fertilizer,' or not do anything and just make building your colony a little more efficient in terms of space usage.

If this were to be put in, it should give a big decrease in happiness and increase in fear to colonists farming on the land. I mean, you're literally using dead bodies as fertilizer. They already freak out just walking on top of graves.

Just two weapons:
Prototype Pistol
A laser pistol with relatively low accuracy and range, but a moderate chance of causing stun

Taser
A gun with ridiculously short range, but a huge chance of causing stun

That does make sense, especially given the current system, and might be a fun cost vs. benefit decision if it did give a boost to the growing. Later on though, there could also be a 'hippy' trait where a colonist might think of using bodies (human or animal) as fertilizer as a way of 'returning to nature,' and therefore not have a problem with it at all.
