General Tips

You can hold down shift while clicking the scale buttons on a subsystem icon to increment the scale by .25 rather than jumping to the next scale.

Enter "find a e i o u" (without the quotes) in the console to get a list of all console commands.

Here is a guide for early game strategies

Suggestions for improving this unoffical FAQ are both welcome and greatly appreciated.
