Changes to tourists

  • Tourists have a new Satisfaction stat, which tracks how much each tourist is enjoying their holiday.

  • Tourists now board any nearby rocket when they are looking to go home (instead of only boarding rockets that just landed).

New Feature: RC Safari

  • The new RC Safari allows you to create sightseeing tours around your colony for tourists to enjoy.
  • Set waypoints near domes, wonders, vistas, rock formations, and many other sights to increase the satisfaction bonus tourists get from the safari.
  • Order the new RC Safari from earth, or complete the Rover Printing research to build these yourself.

New Tourist Buildings
