I did send my saved games folder to them late last night. Afterwards I realized that, for whatever reason, itch installed a second version of Aven in the same location and just threw a 2 on the end of the folder name. Very strange! I'm wondering if for whatever reason it didn't see the previous installation? Or what? So my saves are still alive and well! But my HD space is suffering on my PCI express SDD HD. So I need to manually go in and delete the duplicate game. And I'm thinking I should just leave the newest installation and copy the saves from the old over to the new as that is the one itch sends me to. I was just tired and didn't feel like doing it last night.
What you're saying about the housing makes sense. I figured it had some sort of radius of influence but am wondering if the same sphere looks for a certain # of tunnels in the sphere to calculate how well colonist have access to their housing? Or # of connecting tunnels? Basically I'm wondering if it matters how I build them or just quantity. I can't seem to bring back up the negative numbers I get no matter how many more additional housing projects I implement or how I spread out the population between the housing.
And I guess I'll need to check out both "Imperium Romanum" and "Dune Battle for Arrakis!"
