Play with my fingers on the 1,2,3, space buttons. Changing down to 1 or pause whenever something needs changing, then up to 3 unless there is a fight that isn't trivial.

* sometimes i play a modded phoebe (i change it to lower event triggers and increase the pop-cap limit to the same as randy).
* i lay down the complete base designs, i spawn new peeps until i get 16 colonists, i assign the tasks, etc.. then play the game on 3x and go AFK.
* then i just watch what they do for several in-game days, to check the effectiveness of AI automation.
* obvious AI derps becomes glaringly more obvious. particularly the long-winded pathing/hauling derps, the priority derps, the lack of more effective self-preservation derps, etc.. most of them having already existed since alpha 1.

---------

sometimes, i also test out defense designs this way (when i'm feeling lazy).

* i go to god mode, plop down the design i'm testing out.
* i spawn a zerg rush
* i draft my colonists to hide inside for safety.
* i watch how effective new variations of killbox and onion-ring walls are.
* then i try to replicate this on a normal game. (modded Cass / Randy hybrid)

----

* then i get bored and start playing other games.
* and then new and totally awesome alphas gets released for rimworld.
* i pick it up and do these things all over again.  ;)

I play largely on 1x speed, but I will set it to 3x speed if all of my colonists are asleep.
