New terraforming resource - heat
#1
0
I thought this one would be a great addition to the game. You can implement heat in several ways. Heat could detirmine whether lakes are ice, water, or non-existant. The higher the heat, the more water  colonists consume, buildings decay faster, automatic production is slowed, and power plants are reduced in effectiveness. The colder the planet gets, the faster automatic buildings operate, colonists consume more food, buildings decay faster, bots move and build faster(cold makes metal more conductive to electricity), and power plants increase in effectiveness.

Even though too much heat or cold have their downsides, you could make buildings that exploit them. For example, a therm powerplant consumes heat and water to make power. An advanced brick factory coukd require heat and clay to make bricks quickly, a refridgerator could use water and produce heat and food  because if it's preserving capabilities, less food has to be thrown out, so does if the fridge is producing food. 



Adding the heat aspect to the game  adding the heat aspect of the game got  would force the player to balance the heat and atmosphere in order to produce plant and animal life.  This would also make room for heat terraforming buildings. I will continue to develop this idea  And make resource costs and production amounts for the buildings. I may need help drawing the buildings because I am a horrible drawer.

@UltimoDeNinja, That's a cool thought too.
avatar
probably not. there may be such big changes that we're gonna want to start over
avatar
I just had a really funny thought. Do you think when the final version of My Colony is released we'll all have to start from scratch with new games?
avatar
meh.. I want my 100 bln

avatar

Plastic will likely drop in price soon with the new advanced plastic building
avatar
I can give you 20k plastic

What's your charter code @cooldawg123?
avatar
srry 3 bil
avatar
ok that kinda sucks since i need about 20k, and id have to pay 300mil
avatar
than you have to produce it yourself. plastic is a rare resource, so if you want to buy it instead of making it, you have to pay the prices in the GBT
avatar
or the galactic freight (im not gonna pay those bs prices for plastic in the GBT)
avatar
i just noticed that there is no plastic in the space elevator importing market
avatar
@cooldawg123 it does. it does not if you minimize the window. but if you open another programm and don't minimize the chrome window, it'll continue.

My population suddenly stopped growing at 324... Even though I have more than enough housing and landing pads!
