::Instructions and tips:

* Speed up the game with [F] key.

* Review how much energy and water a building needs in pop-up menu when you move cursor on building icon. After placing a new building you need to connect it with energy or water if building need any; make sure to connect power lines and water tubes to the right places on the South-West side of a building. If a building don't have water/energy, the warning icon will appear.

* Hire new colonists via "HIRE" button on the bottom-center of the screen. Colonists need food and oxygen.

* Review colonist's needs in the bottom-right corner by clicking on him. You can change the name or fire the colonist.

* Set up jobs for each colonist at "JOBS" window. It's not necessarily, but can make your colony and colonists more effective.

* Order resources at "ORDER" window. Helpful when you lack of oxygen or food.

* Cancel build mode by pressing ESC.

* Rename your colonists by pressing on their names.

This game is awesome compared to a lot of the other games I have found that are similar to it. Unit and building management is easy enough to get use to. My only problems are the lack of building rotation and better building descriptions, like pipe overlapping and building capacity( trial and error can only go so far before becoming annoying)

Would have given 5 stars if the game would save. Played this 3 days in a row at work and have to shutdown computer before going home. Have to restart from beginning every time.

I will never play this game again unless a save option is incorporated.
