Terraforming
« on: October 23, 2015, 10:19:00 PM »
Does terraforming work anymore?  I haven't tried it for years, and most players that I see attempt this are actually making a life support "bubble" the size of the planet.

If yes, does anyone know the parameters for a habitable planet?  Can I just use the atmosphere probe info to monitor progress?

Yep gas compressors and venting from tanks can be used to modify atmospheres. IIRC you need at least 5% oxygen, temperature between 283 and 310k, and pressure between 1 and 10 (is that still a thing?).

Success terraforming the toxic / swamp planet

Desert planet I gave the same stats as spawn, but the temp is still around 330K.  CO2 was down to 0.  Is there another way to bring the temp down?  On toxic planet I removed CO2 to drop temp.

Nitrogen lowers temperature

terraforming on sb_astria_01 seems to only work on the toxic/swamp planet.

I tried it on a few other sb maps the other night and it worked fine with just removing CO2 for hot planets.

Good news @kevinminion! I've decided to start working on the proper terraformers again! I've already got a basic prototype working. Just need to come up with a good balance!
