FTL + Rim World = Spave Haven

Granted it's in early access and there's not a lot of substance it plays really well making your own fancy space ship. You have to always be managing life-saving resources while mining and refining materials. Board other vessels and kidnap prisoners only to either kill, ransom or convert. My only gripe about the game is that you don't have the same level of control as Rim World where you can force crew to do something, you can individually assign someone when they're idol yeah but when you run out of water to convert to oxygen or need fuel rods I think that takes a higher importance than going to the bathroom or eating.

Also, it's really not worth keeping prisoners in the long run. You'll have to jump to another sector to re-encounter the same faction you pissed off. Also, by the time you're in your third or fourth sector which is pretty much mid/late early game your first ship is basically end game ready. Yeah you can make a second ship but mo ships = mo problems and you can't research anything or buy upgrades to deal with logistical issues.

its mediocre past the start. Its a constant grind to get all of your shit up to par. The taking control of your guys is exactly like rimworlds only they just kinda vibe and do other things sometimes. Its also near a constant grind to have enough materials to stop a mat death. As you need mats to actually obtain mats in some cases. Meaning if you dont have 1 type of lower tier mat you cant get a higher tier one that you NEED or you end up dying. Mining mats requires mats.

Overall the games okay for abit but it doesnt have enough content

rimworld is also a constant grind
tynan made it slow as shit somewhere between alpha and now and who can honestly be fucked with it

i have played with 10000x global work speed but that fucks skill training because it's based on time spent and not outcome and it's cheating so i don't like it

I was very temtped to get it, it looks very neat on surface level, but literally everyone I asked about it said taht game hugely lacks content and is still to WIP. I'd love to see it grow and give it a try.

Yep

I guess? Though the mod requiers so much research and stuff that I have never even made it into space with any colony I used mod with.

the SoS mod literally turns late-game ship launch into an entirely different game with FTL-based ship combat, it is very cool and they added a scenario that pops you straight into the late-game ship if you don't feel like sinking 20-30 hours in to try it out.
