ROUND 3


Null(@Agenttine):

Construct screw drill(1):
Despite the coal being easily accessable, the drill is not build properly.
Once it is activated the mechanisms within it become jammed and unrepairable, and it ends up being scrapped.

Research lumber mill(5)

scout for ore(2):
Tiny hints of iron are found, trailing off towards the east. although good to find, the amounts are far too small to be of any use.

Blort(@Evolution4Weak):

Construct recon drone(1):
The drone constructed at first seems perfectly average. But after some short flight tests, the drone is found to have improperly built circuitry, resulting in a mix up that causes the drone crash. Luckily it is able to be salvaged for parts, but disapointing none the less.

Research lumber mill(4)

Scout the area(4):
You decide to explore outside the immediate area. Beneath the forest there are many hills and valleys. And beneath which are signs of coal deposits several meters below. Likely relatively recently. Besides that there is little to see without diving into the canopy.

Huginn(@Immortaldragon):

Look for fuel(6):
While seaching for a viable fuel source for a starving factory, you search southward to find a small bog. It seems to have lots of freshly deposited peat in high desity. A few mines and it should provide for years, as long as it doesn’t get flooded.

Construct steam engine(1):
With a large supply of water, you decide you should use it. But the actual constructed engine is broken, not knowing this flaw, you start the engine. A leakage in the engine releases boiling water, and the flow of water starts opening the leak into a hole, tearing up the engine. With this catastrophic failure, the entire engine is shutdown and scrapped.

Null(@Agenttine):

Construct Refinery(5):
Despite having no ore to smelt, it seems like a good idea to build a smelter. With nothing better to do, you spent all season perfecting this refinery.

Scout to max range(4):
You decide to try to look as far as possible. With this massive circular sweep, you have to disable some functionality of the drone to save enough electricity. Across this sweep you can see the edge of the forest to the south, leading to masive plains, although these are not easily accessable. You can also see to the north a large natural wall made of large hills, behide which there is an odd interuptive material. By the end of it the drone enters emergency power and nearly falls out of the sky, but does make it home in time. You were unable to scan most of the forest and ore scanning was disabled.

As you scout further, you manage to spot a mountain range to the north, seeing as you can’t seem to find anything in other directions, you explore this way. The mountains are further than you can actually reach, but you can reach the foothills. The hills covered in a draft of air coming over the mountains, with scruby plants growing over them. Beneath which you detect a traces of coal beneath the soil, you are not sure which way the trails lead.

Thoranki(@Svrangite):

Construct screw drill(2):
Seeing as you don’t want the drill to be deployed yet, you assemble only the parts of it and make them so they can construct together. But it is poorer quality because of this, you refer to this ‘the ikea effect’, you have no idea where you got the name but it refers to when something that has to be assemble later will often be of lower quality.

Scout for more caves(2):
You find several ice caves beneath the surface, but they’re covered over by ice. You remember that the one you are in was opened when you broke through and landed. So you cannot reach these yet. But as your drone returns, you decide to check the caves linked to your cavern. Most of the caves are too small, but you find one wide enough for the drone to go through one-way al the way through, and you detect an area that is much wider on the other side. Although you are currently not sending the drone down.
