never mind - you MUST use wells to get at it. I suppose that makes sense. Although its not always clear when placing a well is a good idea or not - it seems like putting it near water is a good idea.

Transforming should be a thing - darn lava / rock+water zone :D I did the challenge "Limited Space" (whoo) had two planets , I'm getting better at this game!

And I just spend almost 6 bucks to get all the things unlocked. ^_^ happy times.

Techno moles are great because they start with geology that tells you exactly what you can get from mining/drilling.

Even without geology though, you can tell the solid and liquid mineral content number of the surface you are building on. Under the simple name of the terrain you will build on ("rocky ground", "countryside", etc), there are two numbers. Once I figured this out, the game got a lot better for me!

When you are looking at an empty ground tile, you will see an image like the clay symbol and an image like an oil symbol (bottom centre, underneath the name of the land tile). Next to those are some numbers that show the total solid and liquid resource contents of the tile. Obviously you don't get to know if the liquid is oil or water until you build your well (you need the Geology tech for that), but its good for avoiding placing a house on a tile that secretly has a lot of oil.

If the tile already has a structure, then you will see the numbers to the right of the structure with a little white line coming from the ground.

I hope that makes sense. If it is unclear then I can try to make a screenshot to show what I mean.

yeah I saw the numbers now - gives me a hint to if there is a lot or little liquid. :D thanks!
