The colony is a set of props that can be mixed and matched with each other or other sets.
A Large rock/ice prop is an ideal setting for your off world visions, add the extended sand/snow prop and quadruple your options. The outcropping of add on rocks/ice will help you to customize your world.
Now start to build. Two large buildings complete with working doors provide your team with shelter from the elements. Place them wherever you like or take advantage of the full set preloads for either the rock or ice version. Seismology gear and a weather balloon will keep you up on the changing world. Cargo hubs provide a place to keep your gear safe but don't worry the cargo cases are reenforced steel so you should be good in any event.
So get exploring, discover new lands and travel to lost worlds all with just a click of your mouse.
