Written by Cap'n Saccade

Beta will change, so will this guide. It's currently dealing with how to maximise 
efficiency from the AI and workaround the gremlins in early - mid game.

-=A Few Tips on Maximising AI Efficiency=-
* After, eg, a hunt - a colonist will butcher the animal and leave several items 
  on the ground. 
* While they may have space for 3 items, they will pick up only one piece of meat 
  (if at all - perhaps they will decide to take the next pending task on the other 
  side of the map). 
* Select the colonist and then click the pick up three things, to fill their inventory,
  and then click a storage unit (domicile or whatever) to place these things. 
* If there is more to carry and you choose a colonist who is not in the area, from 
  the Activity menu (key 5) - the fact that the game zooms to them means having to 
  re-locate the items in order to issue the command for them to collect the items 
  on the floor. 
* They will take one, then attempt to return it to storage - so you can interrupt 
  this action by forcing the colonist to collect the maximum carry of 3 items and 
  then ensure they take them to a storage with space (it will flash blue. If there's 
  no space, they'll dump on the floor outside). 

-=Workspaces, Tasks, Pending and Priorities=-
* If there is no storage space, filling a colonist's inventory will mean they will 
  drop the items at the place closer to "home" where they will, eg, grab those 2 
  sticks needed to finish the storage hut to store all the stuff they dropped - it 
  will now be closer to storage, rather than half the map away - much quicker. 
* When it comes to pending tasks, there doesn't appear to be a way to reorder or 
  raise pending task's priority or to raise priority on workareas. 
* There appears also no way to issue a command to a colonist to quickly go and grab 
  a few sticks to finish that building (red flashing arrow, have to assign more to 
  workspace, cancel other tasks). 
* Raising the building's priority means only that the colonists are more likely to 
  choose to contribute to it rather than take on another pending task (seen in tasks 
  - key 6). They won't do this if they are involve in another task (hunting, gathering, 
  being mauled by bears, etc...) 
* To ensure a task has the highest priority of being "next chosen by anyone who does 
  anything" - it's possible to cancel all other tasks from this menu. 
* A good workload in order to maximise efficiency *autonomously* using the AI's 
  decision making, without your intervention (except with filling an inventory for 
  transport efficiency), is to have the workload at: 100+(2*colonists)=114% with 7 
* This is a manageable workload and will ensure the colonists are always busy but 
  have time to attend to their needs and retain high morale (and recover from animal 
* Doing all this appears to be the best way to minimise micromanagement, while 
  allowing the AI's decision making to perform the tasks in decent order and 

-=Grouping, Stockpiles and Wasted Storage Space=-
* If colonists become fragmented - scattered all over the map on errands - and 
  you'd like them to all work together on something (eg, hunting that mammoth 
  wandering through town), use the F6 alarms to bring them back to "base" (assuming
  you're building domiciles in the same area and not using a spread out, village 
* You can double click on an age group and it will select all on the screen - even 
  those in houses, to whom you can issue commands such as - "go kill that peaceful 
  mammoth", "gather skulls for more totems", "please go up against that bear alone,
  grandad, because we're over-populated", etc... 
* Kids are good for transport sprints and gathering workgroups, adults for everything 
  - use them mostly for manual tasks - and old people for workgroups or crafting. 
* Setting the stockpile limits for crafting and building resources a little high, 
  while ensuring that - with every advance - such things as wooden spears are reduced 
  from 50% to 0% will ensure that your colonists are always kitted out with the best 
  gear and there is a store of crafting materials ready to use without having to go 
  out and collect more - straight to the job at hand. 
* Filling your storage with out-dated things such as wooden spears, by leaving it 
  at 100% for population means you've a bunch of out-dated things sitting in storage 
  that weren't used. Who needs wooden spears in storage when you're using flint or 
  steel swords? 
* One way to clear accidental out-dated stock is through the trader (or not producing 
  any new things until all the old ones are used up), although items from previous 
  eras depreciate a lot in value, so don't expect much for a piece of wood and animal
  skins when it's all about leather, rock and heavy metal. 
* Make sure you collect everything next to the trader - they'll turn up and dump it 
  in a massive pile on entity #1 - the fireplace from the start, unless you've removed 

-=Urbs and Suburbs=-
I haven't tried farming and building a city or anything, because I'm looking at game 
function abd how it operates or might progress, rather than simply playing it.

* While it may make sense to consolidate the tribe, there's something to be said for
  making several smaller communities around the map, to reduce travel times and improve
  defense and efficiency before resources have dwindled back to using sticks and skins 
* This is my mining camp, it has some housing, is outside the walls, and crafter that 
  only makes warm clothes, picks and swords for defence. Food is kept in the houses. 
  There's a hearth and a few totems, just to ward off bad guys. 
* Down the street (a path cut through the trees), by the lake, there's the food area 
  that deals with curing fish and meat, The walls start here - anyone stupid enough 
  to try raiding across the lake ends up feeding the fish. Here are a few more totems,
  because some people don't go past here, so it marks the end of the world as they 
  know it. 
* Further inland, there's the storage areas, where the mining guys take the stone as 
  they pass the food and drink. This is also one of the main crafting areas, and 
  surrounds a big stone that people think is important. 
* That's next to the weaponsmith, that has a storage shed full of protective garments 
  and rocket launchers. There's a lot of skulls here, to make sure the well is always 
  polluted and here forms the first of the inner gates. 
* Adjacent to both of these, there's the dead centre - the spiritual hub of the urb. 
  It's a nice centrepiece and people wandering to and from workplaces have to go 
  through the gate right pass it, so they keep their morale high. 
* Then, there's the housing estate. When the alarm is called - everyone books it #
  back here and has a massive scrap around the sacrificial stone circle. 
* For every few fallen enemies - another skull totem is raised next to a house, 
  just because we're a violent and brutal society.
* Keeps everyone happy and thirsty for blood and every idler is sent hunting or on 
  gathering errands. 

Because there are no fighting pits for entertainment, yet.
