As an officer, you’ll have to direct your dwellers to where they’ll spend their time in the vault, whether it’s spending some time relaxing in the lounge, gathering vital resources like food in the community gardens, or battling a radroach infestation in the game room. The choice is always yours, but remember, you’ll have to balance happiness and efficiency to lead your people to a brighter future underground!

But don’t worry, your vault will grow in surprising new ways as you construct rooms for your dwellers to visit.
