Thanks to /u/FifthRom for his/her helpful write up or his/her survivor play through.
For those who are interested, here are some details: The bottleneck is steel (I think that's obvious to all), so I built 2 automatons for the sole purpose of working nights in the steelworks and switched the outpost depot to steel very soon after discovering the location.
- Radical Treatment
- Organ Transplants
- House of Prayer
- Evening Prayers
- Extended Shift
- Faith Keepers
- House of Healing
- Protector of the Truth
- Faster Gathering
- More Scouts
- Steam Steelworks
- Flying Hunters
- Steam Coal Thumper
- Difference Engine
- Advanced Steelworks
I lost track of the order at this point, but the other techs that I researched were (in no particular order): Flying Hunter Gear, House Redesign, Improved Heaters, Heater Efficiency Upgrade, Resource Depot Upgrade, Hunting Tactics.
There may be other techs that are more desirable than this last group. In fact, I had trouble with heating my houses and keeping my houses of healing open when the generator shut down, and a few people died as a result. I wish that I had researched House Insulation and perhaps the Healthcare Insulation line. Faster Outpost Teams might have been helpful for the 20% speed to the evacuation transport. I also wonder if Steam Coal Mine might have been better than Steam Coal Thumper, but thumpers worked out for me in the end at least. Now that I think about it, I could've built kilns for all the wood I had sitting around at the end of the game.
I sent my initial scouts to Shrouded Cave for the ~80 raw food even though it's pretty far away. I sent my second team to Storm Shelter to bring home the engineers, after which I had 6 workshops. Wood is tight in the mid game, so Frozen Forest is helpful. Beyond that, it's just collecting steel and steam cores.
I find the beginning of this scenario to be painful, but I do have fun with it after that initial gathering phase. Now I just have to get the survivor achievement, for which I will NOT try to fill the dreadnought!
As always, let me know your thoughts on how this strategy can be improved.
