What are observations?
Observations are a fun, OPTIONAL, thing you can apply for when Leveling your colonists, so long as the submission meets the above requirements! They are randomized from many different possibilities. The just-for-fun ones include natural disasters, things your colonists might notice while out and about, friendships or rivalries made, or even the odd tribe or foreign colony visit.
Observations can only occur in pieces your colonist is in that are based in your colony's home region, unless you have the Disguise Kit research unlocked for your colony.
An image submission can have a maxium of two Observation rolls per colony.
What Can Happen?
While most Observations will be flavor text to give you fun things to react to for personal plot purposes only, observations are also the primary way of encountering wandering natives who may wish to join your colony. There is also the possibility of finding Xen, items, or even potentially getting injuries! It's a game of chance but the rewards outweigh the potential consequences.
