Make sure that theres a heat source (a campfire will do for now), some food stocked in a chest and that your NPCs have a clear path to both.

If they do, then its our bad - NPC AI is next on our to do list because currently theyre extremely stupid and will glitch out and happily stand there while starving and freezing to death.

Last night one of my guys had a countdown over him so picked him up and chucked him at a bed, then ate baked potatoes in front of him till he passed away.

I made a bunch of iron beds (because the pattern for the sandstone one, which I had a billion of, didnít seem to work), and they seemed to find them and sleep. I also cooked 100 baked potatoes and handed them out to my troops, who made a satisfying CRUNCH sound as they immediately ate one. However I would like to file a bug, because I didnít burn the space potatoes. They shouldíve been soft, not crunchy. Thank you.

In-game lore dictates that potatoes in space are VERY HARD. The crunch you hear isnít from the potato but is actually the sound of their teeth crumbling as your dumb colonists try to bite into it.

They should be called space tubers then. Everyone knows a baked potato is soft. But nobody can argue about a tuber. We all have a vague idea of what a tuber is, but can't quite nail down the specifics. If someone handed me a tuber and it broke my teeth, I would have nobody to blame but myself.

Colonists only enjoy baked potatoes if they're charred inside out.

So, I'm brand new to these sort of games. I could not for the life of me figure out how to use the work bench? I've been harvesting like mad, and trying to trick the NPCs into continue following me. I love digging around and making caves.

But, I'm currently lost

Sure. Once you have ample raw material like you do - create a crafting bench and place it. Once it's placed "PRESS TAB" in order to hand craft an item. Our dev decided that Pressing E on a bench would make you place a work order (for an NPC to create it for you, ostensibly) and that Pressing Tab would allow you to handcraft an item for yourself.

Are the maps endless or does the planet loop around? Iíve been running in one direction fir a good 10k tiles so far; long way back.

Upcoming changes:

Steam ID will show Outworlder Playtest
Bleeding affliction disabled until we figure out a better way to display it
NPC afflictions show on tooltip
Switch to D3D11
Improvements to weapon animation and physics

Coming soon:

Automatic port forwarding
Planet temperature will be increased so you no longer freeze to death. In future, temperature will reflect your surroundings more accurately. IE it will only be freezing if theres snow and ice everywhere

Yeah, there will be crash landings or colonists that spawn near you over time with a chance of one being a scientist. You also need an armorer to craft weapons.

We have it built in rn that if colonists run into convenient "accidents" they'll be replaced by further spawns so you can game that.

Failing that, the debug menu can force spawn a scientist for you.

Eventually we're going to figure out ways you can better get the right colonists you need.

Is there max amount of natural spawns currently or is it just X time until another one spawns?

Steam Playtest is weird in that it approves in batches / waves. I have to look into the details but I'm sure we could do another push soon-ish.

Can you make doors?
If you select a colony member, how do you de-select them? The UI for that takes up A LOT of screen real estate.

The proposed game is EXACTLY what I want from a survival game. I hope you guys keep going!

Two questions:

2: Can you customize the controls? 'Cos I'm used to using E for everything, and I'd like to switch the Tab and E functions mentioned above.
