That's what I do! Toxic fallout or not!I mean, come on! Boring? What? You hardly have to do anything differently. Unless your map happens to be in the greenest of zones, and you grow everything outside. Then you construct roofs or watch your plants die.Other than that, it really shouldn't matter.Wildlife dies? Duh.Wild animals don't reproduce anyway, it's not like you can live off them all the time. They can die.Wild plants are scattered, it's easier to grow than to run around the map for an uncertain amount of food. They can die.Trees could be the biggest problem, but easily manageable: you can grow trees, so they too can die.Colonists can spend a day outside, no danger.What makes it oh so boring?
Quote from: Darkhymn on February 01, 2016, 10:33:13 PMIt would be most boring if it was actually dangerous and you got it early. I specifically thought it was boring as hell until I realized I could go out in it without any detrimental effects for the first few days. It would probably be a death sentence in the earlier game if you weren't just being dwarves, but I find there's very little incentive to play on non-mountainous maps.
