Feral Overload is a colony event chain that has a very small chance to trigger 3 years after any colony has been founded. It can only happen once per game.

Feral Behavior

The situation on [colony name] has spiraled out of control. A staggering number of inhabitants are now infected with whatever is causing this feral deluge, and the colony has started to break down because of it. Something needs to be done, or [colony name] will be lost.

The investigation of the strange and wild behavior currently besetting [colony name] has been completed. In the vast network of cave tunnels that permeates the planet's crust an enigmatic fungus has been found. It grows all over the caves - floor, walls, ceiling - and stretches out for thousands of miles.

The fungus frequently releases spores that are vented out of the caves - for what purpose has not been established, but we know for certain that it causes primitive behavior in our species, releasing primal urges within.

We can try to find a useful application of this phenomenon, or we can exterminate the fungus altogether.

Industrial facilities have been built over the outlets for the fungus-infested cave systems. Apart from filtering and regulating the spread of spores, these plants can also convert any excess spore clouds into useful exotic gases

The population growth is increased as the somewhat randy inhabitants of [colony name] satisfy their urges more frequently, which unfortunately also means that the level of violence and conflict is somewhat higher on [colony name].

The project to incinerate all Cave Mushrooms have now been completed and the primal urge-inducing fungus has been exterminated.

As luck would have it, several of the burned-out caves turned out to have rich mineral veins, which can now be exploited further.
