Am at the point where I am having to plan a couple of shipments ahead and thinking strategically about building activity. It's a nice challenge and I like the way the game has changed.
Would like to be able to do something about the idlers though, e.g if they could support other activities even if only 20% effective. Maybe that's a later phase option?
Main question for here is: Domes are not compliant with my Agency policy... But they're required for peizo membrane and therefore radiation shielding. Is is ok to research but not build the dome? Or is that entire branch of the tech tree just not available?
true currently idlers have no use. You can only see to it that they get into work but that is sometimes not possible at the moment or only at a later time.
Regarding Domes: Non-compliant techs can not be researched at all. The same is true for techs unlocked by these non-compliant techs. However, this changes further down the road of your settlement development, so just keep an eye on it for the moment.
