Colonists may build snowmen as a recreational activity when there is snow on the ground.
There are two types of snowy weather: gentle snow and hard snow. These can occur at temperatures of -0.5 (31.1 ) and below.
|Weather||Accuracy modifier||Move speed modifier||Snow rate|
In snowy weather, snow gathers on the ground as long as it is unroofed. Various depths of snow exist, with deeper levels hindering movement more.
|Level||Depth range (%)||Move speed (%)|
|Dusting||3 ≤ 𝑥 < 25||100|
|Thin||25 ≤ 𝑥 < 50||76|
|Medium||50 ≤ 𝑥 < 75||62|
- Depth is an internal value, measured from 0% to 100%, hidden from the player.
The melting rate of snow from ambient temperature is found using the following table:
|Temperature range||Melting rate (depth %/tick)|
|0(32 ) and below||0|
|Between 0(32 ) to 10 (50 )||0.058% of temperature²|
|10(50 ) and above||0.58% of temperature|
As a result, snow will not be melted by ambient temperatures of 0(32 ) or less, and the higher the temperature the faster the snow will melt.
