25 cycles in and still doing ok, but it's sloooow going. I've got food (via mealwood and hexalent) and oxygen (via electrolysis), but energy is hard to come by.

For the time being, I'm sticking with the mousewheel and occasionally the wood burner. There are no coal deposits within easy reach, nor are there hatches I can farm. I've uncovered one geyser so far, which has hot (but clean) water, so that's convenient, but no natural gas or anything so far. And I'm constantly blocked by hard-to-dig stuff.

So it's definitely a challenge, though I'm making progress. I'd really like to get my energy production up, but don't yet see a way. Arbor trees worked well on my last base but I need a big polluted water source, and don't have one yet.
