I lost most of my colonists to earthquakes and poisounous plants, but I had quite a bit of scientific knowledge amd the planet was so rich in ressources they entered post singularity and built themselves hanging cities in the huge trees.
Unfortunately the small population and dangerous conditions drove them towards a dystopian police state... but hey, they're alive
@janellecshane Mine couldn't get along with the pre-stone-age civilization already on the planet, but they just agreed to live on different parts of the plant and not talk.
They live happy lives in warrens of caves (it's super cold out) with information-age technology and democracy. They even have helpful alien animals.
I'm so proud.
