Tables provide a place for colonists to eat that is strongly preferred to eating on the ground. Colonists will be more upset about eating without tables than their friends being dead.
Tables require adjacent dining chairs, stools or armchairs, but they need not face the table. Corner spots can accommodate two simultaneous diners.
There are two lengths of table available for construction:
- Table (short) (size 2x2) (accommodates eight simultaneous sitting/eating)
- Table (long) (size 4x2) (accommodates twelve simultaneous sitting/eating)
A table is set by default as a gathering spot. Colonists will gather here to socialize, especially when idle. It can be toggled off.
Tables can be made of several different materials, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and beauty modifiers.
