Proposal: Terraforming

Passes at 11-0. -Purplebeard

If the Proposal titled “V-P-L; P” failed, this Proposal does nothing.

Add to rule Tasks:

* Build Wall. The Colonist may spend 8 Energy and remove 2 Wood or 1 Rock from the stockpile to turn an empty space adjacent to his location into a Wall if there are no Colonists in that Location.
* Build Door. The Colonist may spend 12 Energy and remove 2 Wood and 1 Rock from the stockpile to turn an empty space adjacent to his location into a Door.
* Dig Channel. The Colonist may spend 16 Energy to turn an empty space adjacent to his location into a Channel if there are no Colonists in that Location.

Add to rule The Settlement:

A group of connected Locations enclosed by Walls, Doors and/or Rock is known as a Room. If any single Location would be in more than one Room, only the largest counts as a Room. If a Location is in a Room, that Location is Indoors. Otherwise, it is Outside.

Rewrite the rule Locations into the following:

Special effects of certain Locations shall be listed at the end of this rule.

* Bed: A Colonist who is Indoors and in a Bed may set his Energy to 150 instead of 100 when resting.
* Channel: If a Channel is Adjacent to Water, it turns into Water.

In rule Tasks, Add to the task “Chop Wood”:

Whenever a Colonist Chops Wood, they must roll a DICE3, and on a 1 turn a Large Tree adjacent to their Location into an Empty Space.

In the settlement map, add ‘O Wall’ and ‘_ Channel’ to the legend as an Occupied location, and ‘+ Door’ as an Empty location.

But Large Trees should become Small Trees…

Very odd that a single Commoner can repeatedly chop 1 wood to easily get rid of a tree while getting only an expected value of 3 wood.  But doing 25 chops at once always succeeds and has a 67% chance of leaving the tree usable for the next person.

Hix: Sure, you can “do 25 chops at once” without DICE rolling? Proposal Quote: “Whenever a Colonist Chops Wood,”...

All it needs is a simple clarification, a pretty easy fix to an altogether good proposal, imo

for  Though you can dig channels into rock without first mining it…

for Although I’m not entirely sure the Room definition works; in a solid 4x3 grid of rock, the middle two squares are “connected Locations enclosed by Walls, Doors and/or Rock”. (And “only the largest [overlapping Room] counts as a Room” means that any given room will automatically start expanding to include its “walls”, and then the walls of those walls, indefinitely.)

I suppose “A group of connected Locations” should just be “A group of connected Empty Locations”?

@my last comment: Oh, sure you can: “The Colonist may spend (4x) Energy to add x Wood to the Colony Stockpile.”
