Like so many games here on Newgrounds: Great concept, piss poor implementation.
"* Set up jobs for each colonist at "JOBS" window. It's not necessarily, but can make your colony and colonists more effective."
Completely ineffective. My minions are running around mining, shooting and gathering even though those jobs are turned off for everyone, and NO ONE is building even though there is TONS of things to build. Then the entire colony collapses because no one will build the necessities.
Fix the AI or ditch the game. Don't push out a half-assed game.
