145 - 66 Million Years Ago

The Age of the Dinosaurs. Giant, terrible lizards roam a steamy, tropical Earth. Plants pile atop each other for a chance at a bit of warm sunlight, and marshes and swamps cover massive swaths of Earth's surface.

The entire planet is bursting with life, but see that bright light in the sky? Does that look like it's coming at us?

About[edit | edit source]

This world can only be played after you complete Cambria. Completing Cretacea will unlock Dania.

Victory is achieved when you reach 100% independence and have fulfilled either the mission the Daughters of Gaia gave you (paradise habitability) or the one Red gave you (kept stats within 5% of original stats). You don't need to complete the normal goal for the faction you chose (500.000.000 population for the UNSA / revenue for Horizon Corporation).

Regardless of what you did on the previous planets, you can still choose to fulfill Red's or Alana's mission.

You have been granted access to a secret project under development by a foreign power: an automated system currently being taught how to terraform a planet.

One side wants you to terraform to Paradise, the other wants you to maintain the starting stats of the planet. it's up to you who to side with. At the time you reach completion for each world, your choice will be finalized in the computer's memory.

When you start playing Cretacea, the world will already be producing 40 biomass/ minute because of natural growth.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Cretacea is the only world on which you can get Worldkiller Asteroids on Normal mode, so be sure to install a Planetary Defense Network. The reason the developers made Cretacea the exception, is because during this era the non-avian dinosaurs were wiped out by an asteroid.
