What I look for exactly in each colonist:
1) High Skill in shooting with passion for each colonist.
2) No health conditions / No pyromaniac to start
3) A Colonist with 8+ and a passion for planting (preferably with a passion for cooking or medical as well).
4) A colonist with +8 with a passion for construction(preferably with mining/cooking/etc)
5) Colonist with +8 with a passion for crafting (preferably with a passion in cooking/minning/doctor/research etc)
6) The pickier you are the longer it will take to find a "good enough" colonist to start with.
7) Find a good balance, and give it your best!
8) good luck!!
