About this game

Settle on MARS in a mixture of game and scientific simulation. Take control over a tiny group of 10 settlers and choose a landing site on the barren Mars. Develop your venture from one single landing module into a thriving settlement with hundreds of specialized buildings and even more inhabitants.

Research & development of new technologies as well as exploration of the Red Planet are key for establishing a permanent presence in this hostile environment.

And you are not alone. Other settlements, each one controlled by a real human somewhere on Earth, are starting to grow everywhere and a competition for being the most successful Mars colony has already begun.

The game is hard at first because of limited resources that you need to allocate carefully for your settlement to survive. Every modules that you need comes from shipments from earth. But once you reached the industry phase wherein you can already produce the needed modules for constructing anything then the game starts to get interesting. Well it seems that we cannot manufacture Transparent Modules at all. Edit: transparent modules can also be manufactured at Construction Modules Factory.

The game has serious issues due to the atrocious shipment mechanic combined with maintenance demands. You will most often die (or be stuck without anything to do) not due to mismanagement, but simply because shipments seem to be both entirely random and really really miserly.

I like the game but I seem to be having trouble with gaining TD modules. All settlers died because I couldn't get modules factory built in time. I don't see how i could have done things differently to stop this from happening as I only built what I needed when I needed it.

Thanks for the constructive feedback! Depending on play style and chosen launch organization, the actual kind of material shortage differs but eventually happens. Please see https://de.heiwa-games.com/forum/mars-the-arrival/too-few-modules for hints on how to handle/avoid material shortage.
