Tips and tricks[edit | edit source]

  1. You need 1 distiller for upto 5 drifters , as soon as you get more then 5 , then 2 distillers is a must.
  2. Setting lower limits on amounts of items under production output helps a lot during early gameplay, it frees up your drifters to do other things when you have enough items made for now,
  3. To get fish being constantly caught , make sure you have 2 boats per drifter set to prioitised fishing , this ensures that they will take out another empty boat straight away whilst the one they just came back in is unloaded.
  4. ensure you have a couple of drifters set to higher priority hauling duties once you get past 5 drifters, this ensures that the rest of the drifters will be able to complete the jobs they have been set to as often as possible, rather than wasting time moving items.
