Duskworks Program is the leading effort in supporting and incentivizing independent settlers to colonize and industrialize the Mars surface. Through the accommodations incentive and free habitation to the lead settler for all Duskworks memberships, thousands of settlers have created their own plots of land full of industrial powerhouses.
The research and knowledge gathered from these settlements have also been instrumental in improving the quality of life for all Martian settlers -- especially in the Artifacts category. The Artifacts being exceptionally well designed buildings who had been lost during various disasters such as the Mars DART disaster. However, with these settlers help, most of these buildings have been recovered.
