The firefoam popper is a device that will extinguish all flames in its radius when it pops.


Activation

A firefoam popper is triggered in one of two ways:

  • It is triggered automatically when it catches fire.
  • It can be triggered manually by a colonist directed to it via the mouse right-click.

Once activated, it will spark for about two seconds before it bursts into a spray of foam extinguishing all flames in a 19 x 19 area. Pawns on fire will also be extinguished. The explosion does not damage structures or colonists. The firefoam popper destroys itself when it pops, making it a one-time use device.

Firefoam

The residual firefoam prevents fire. This provides very effective protection against inferno cannons and any other type of incendiary. To intentionally leave firefoam in place, remove the home area to prevent colonists from cleaning it up. The area would also need to be roofed because rain and snow quickly wash away firefoam, in about two game hours.

Although firefoam fireproofs an area, it makes for an ugly environment. Firefoam indoors has beauty of -25; outdoors it has beauty of -7.

Pawns passing through firefoam move about 25% slower.
