    Startopia Bio-Deck FAQ
    by Zorlond Jaeger
    v1.0, 7/1/01
    Greetings. This is a sort of FAQ-let for Startopia, focusing entirely on the 
    Bio-Deck, and the crops grown there. I hope it is simple to read, and useful 
    to you. You may contact me at my e-mail above, but please use discression, I 
    have enough spam floating around there as it is. I am willing to take 
    suggestions for better descriptions of the plants and terrain, as well as any 
    corrections needed. At this point, I am uncertain if this will grow into a 
    full Startopia FAQ, it may if I get inspired later. As always, you may put 
    this FAQ anywhere you like, as long as it is freely available to the public.
    Thank you and good day.

    Any deeper, and the farmers seem to refuse to plant anything. Temperature 
    seems to have no relevance for water plants. Seems only Stickrush grows in 
    shallow water. Land height seems to have no relevance on any crops.
