Weather is an environmental modifier.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Weather influences the intensity of the present environmental hazard. Weather conditions can be sorted into several general categories (Note that all environmental hazard values are approximate).

  • For a list of weather types, see weather types.
  • for a list of weather types for each biome, refer to the specific biome pages.

Protection against hazards[edit | edit source]

Hazard bars for toxic, cold, and hot climates

There is insulation in your suit that protects you from these dangers; once it wears out you will start to take damage.

To recharge it you must go to a location sheltered from the specific hazard (for example, a cool place on a hot planet). Caves often serve this purpose if they can be found. Exosuit insulation can also be upgraded to last longer.

Extreme hazard planets[edit | edit source]

As of 1.03 there are extreme hazard planets that contain exclusive and powerful hazards. Those can be found in planets where the weather text appears in red font.
