Yoda has a very low smoke leaf tolerance.
He’s constantly passing out from it

Moved the colony to a new spot which was a major hassle but I finally have mostly brick building and the all have plenty of power.
Plus it’s been raining steel & silver asteroids.
Hard feeding animals in the hills, I just culled a bunch of muffalo’s.

Randy Random RNG has been very kind

I'll likely grab the DLC when the next sale hits and start a new colony with all the new stuff. I'll probably load it with mods as well.

Aw crap it could be all over.
I’ve build a nice stone base, have plenty of power and still have a decent amount of steel, I’ve had several asteroid impacts of silver, gold, uranium and a steel one I’ve mostly mined.
Was thinking it has been awhile since the black crabs attacked......then they attacked.
Heavily armed small force which was defeated easily. They were the distraction.
Video is up loading, game is paused.
Look to the bottom right toward the end. I missed that until after I stopped the video


Here is a better image. Got stuff to do, won't be back until late tonight. We will make it thru this.
Run Yoda, run!

I'm with Zin. The only reason to play a mountainous map is to utilize the natural chokepoints. This makes defending your base from anything except drop-pods or infestations a breeze.

There's also a few really easy defenses you can use to help ward off the AI attacks and give you some breather room. One requires walls and steel traps (or slate, but steel does way more damage) and the other requires a roof and some sort of explosive trap like an IED. Artificial roofs will cause a lot of damage in a wide area but doesn't normally kill whereas natural roofs will be an instant kill, but the area is smaller and if anyone is crushed, the body and everything they are using is destroyed. Personally, I prefer the steel trap option but it does eat into your steel reserves since it takes a bit of steel to reset each trap. There's also the fact that if any invaders get away alive, they will remember your traps and avoid that area next time.

Update
More time has gone by, nobody has died but a few ransoms who joined. Finally can make advanced parts and finally made @JEDIYoda a bionic spine to speed him up but haven’t “installed” it yet.
Base is solid however Randy has not been kind.
Currently a defoliator ship in a tough place to attack because it’s far away in a weird spot, huge pack of alpha beavers ate all my trees but this isn’t a huge problem atm.
aaaaaaannnnnnnddddddd.....
Toxic fallout that has been going on for a long time. Slaughtered most of my animals, have a huge reserve of veggies and meat but I am running thru it and people are getting bitchy about not going outside.
I may abandon and rebuild somewhere else.
@zinfamous is in Cyro sleep to prevent fights because he has nothing to do but cause problems.
