Oxygen Not Included: Sweet Dreams Update Introduces the Story Traits System

Sweet Dreams Update
Sweet Dreams Update Klei Entertainment

The Sweet Dreams Update for the colony management sim Oxygen Not Included dropped not too long ago. This content patch adds the new Story Traits system, available on the game’s user interface.

Story Traits are a collection of interactive points of interest buried deep inside asteroids. There are two Story Traits added in the Sweet Dreams Update. The first is called the Somnium Synthesizer - a machine that analyzes the dreams of the Duplicants. It requires Dream Journals, along with some materials to power it. A Dream Journal drops every 300 seconds and players need 25 of those to use the Somnium Synthesizer.

Once powered up, the Somnium Synthesizer provides Duplicants with some stat bonuses that remain active no matter where they are.

The other Story Trait in Oxygen Not Included’s latest update is the Critter Flux-O-Matic. This thing needs to analyze the data of five different critter species, so players must feed the appropriate number to the machine to get things started.

When the Critter Flux-O-Matic is ready to go, the machine can transform base critters into random variants of their species.
