Deharmonized and dissidents

Postby nathanebht » Sun Nov 03, 2019 6:06 am

Had some Gremak protesters who I harmonized. Then colonized a small planet in the same system. So these harmonized Gremak ended up on this new colony. Next turn they deharmonized and turned violent.

Is this a bug? Or is it to be expected because there was no Machine Alter on that planet?

Harmonized colonists that are moved to a planet without a Machine Altar will always become Disconnected. If they're not Tinkers, this means they will revolt; they become horrified when they realize what's been done to them. I don't recall whether the presence of ground units can prevent this through Martial Law.

Unfortunately, with a Colony Base I don't think there's any way to override which colonist is selected, which will be whatever the majority non-Primitive population is on the building planet. So in general you don't want to build a Colony Base from a planet that's not majority Tinkers.

If you have tanks on the planet that built the Colony Base, you can try moving one to the new colony on the turn it's created to see if it prevents the revolt. Or you can rush-buy a Machine Altar.

Thanks for the quick response.

Was just uncertain that was how things were supposed to work.

We should probably have some kind of notification explaining what's happening.
