Icarus Weather Overview

*Warning this contains Beta information that may and will likely change before Release*

*This contains Spoilers*

Icarus was a failed project of terraforming and due to this failure, there are some extreme weather conditions. The effects and types of weather are determined based on the Prospect, Difficulty, and Biome.

Most weather events come in multiple phases. A weather event can be a mixture of these and the extent or length changes based on the specific event!

  • Start Phase – initial start of the weather, typically safer to be outside or get back to base
  • Damage Phase – Increase danger to the player and structures
  • Chaos Phase – Extreme danger to the player, structures, and environment
  • End Phase – Calmer phase after the storm passes
