Lowest-Threat Colony Sites

Selection tips and tables to find the best lowest-threat areas in Surviving Mars. Hope this helps!

Selection Tips

1. Because difficulty bonuses are different in some spots with the same threat level and resources, I think the flatness of the area is very flat for very low percentages of difficulty bonuses and not so flat for higher difficulty bonuses.

2. The best spots with lowest threat level all have 11 resource points, only missing on 1x water.

3. Among these, the following are best suited for colonization:
