I've started playing Rimworld, and I'm finding it interesting, but I've run out of ideas for what I should do next. So far I've only got 3 colonists, I've setup housing for all of them, a mess hall, a trading beacon and power etc.
What I don't know is how to proceed from here. I can research, but what are some short term objectives I can aim for while this is happening? What are some longer term objectives?
Maybe another important thing is how can I get more colonists? I've read that I can buy slaves, or capture enemies, but I've not been attacked and the only slaver I saw came before I had a trading setup. Should I capture visitors perhaps?
