    This achievement can be earned without landing any colonists, which makes it one of the easiest and fastest achievements in the game.

    Choose China as your sponsor, turn off rival colonies and mysteries. For game rules, choose no events, fast rockets, fast scanning, and no disasters.

    For your initial payload, bring 5 polymers, machine parts and electronics (for any needed maintenance), one RC Transport, a drone hub prefab, a Stirling generator prefab, 12 drones, and 15 metals.

    Pick a map with lots of surface metal (optional) and few disasters (11S 162W is a good choice, land your rocket in G2) and start next to a concrete deposit.

    Start scanning the sectors around your landing zone to identify surface metals, and then land your rocket and build a concrete extractor, Stirling generator, a universal depot, and a drone hub.

    Your next step is to set the building locations for ten Micro Domes (40 concrete and 30 metal each), all within range of your drone hub. As each one is built, turn it off and then build a Tai Chi Garden (5 concrete, found under dome services). There is no need to connect the domes, power them, etc.

    You can speed it up by importing metals and/or concrete until you run out of rockets (China starts with four) or just drive your rover around gathering metals from scanned sectors.

    The achievement will unlock after all ten domes are constructed and have a Tai Chi Garden built inside.

    Fuzzy Bear HugsGreat guide. I recommend too dismantling your rockets after they land. Each rocket can be broken into 30 metals, enough for one dome.
