Okay this is a suggestion for late game stuff.
Ik this game is not focused on colony building, but i think this would add some extra depth to the game. Maybe there could be a new mode called colony building where you can research a landing pad so colonist rockets can land? Maybe they have needs and in return they can work in farms and mines to gether resources? The game art style is absolutly adorable but it would be very cool if you can add some function to the structures you build in-game.
Only a thought, people, only a thought.
