Take care of a colony of space ants, while expanding your station and dealing with threats. The gameplay is in the direction of Dwarf Fortress in the setting of Space Station 13. The game features 2D graphics but 3D gameplay. There's detailed engineering for electricity, atmospherics, liquids and plasma. You'll need to serve the needs of your ants, which have ant-like biology, while protecting them from dangers, keep your production chain running and perform scientific research, all while constructing your space station.

A video showing rsdworker building a station in the demo.

Posted by on

User rsdworker made two videos of building a station in Antstation. Awesome, thanks rsdworker!

Part 1: Youtube.com
Part 2: Youtube.com

He builds a fully functional station and it's basically a how-to guide of building a station.
There's a few things in the video which I failed to explain in my guide
-To activate a powerdispenser, click it again while in spawnmode powerdispenser
-Utility going in the Zenith or Nadir (across Z-levels) directions, needs to go via walls
-There's no atmospherics mapmode, so you can right-click a tile, and then click the gass to view the spread of the gas across the station

In addition to how the station is build in the video, it's recommendable to build a layer of wall both above and below your station to prevent the leakage of precious atmosphere.

I also see plenty of bugs (including the wall heater not going on, but rsdworker manages to work around that). So expect that kind of thing while playing.
