Post from TerraGenesis' Facebook for the live event.

The Gaians are trying to steal what is rightfully ours. Can you help us return Mars to its natural state?

A Home of Our Own is a live event that runs occasionally, usually starting at 12am UTC on some Saturdays. During the event's runtime it can be reached by tapping an icon of Mars underneath the icon that allows you to Fast-Forward worlds. Tapping the event icon would take you directly to the event planet, a partially terraformed Normal mode Mars with different priorities than a normal Mars would have. The world is played with the Sons of Hephaestus faction.

Four milestones can be reached in the event, each giving different rewards.

This event starts with the Culture values that come with the Sons of Hephaestus, and you are still restricted to the faction's culture limit (No Transformation Eco-Policy) until you built the Lagrange Academy.

Strategy[]

"A Home of Our Own" is one of the easiest weekend live event. Here are some tips to complete this live event more easily.

  • Build Hab Units in cities.
    • Random events could cause an ecological collapse and decrease population not in habitation facilities.
  • Research Aerostat Platforms or Spaceports.
    • If you choose to research Aerostat Platforms, you could use it in addition to culture revenue for a source of credits.
    • If you choose to research Spaceports, placing a few should give a decent source of revenue.
  • Spend Culture Points towards Industrial, then Conservation, and then Democracy.
    • Alternatively, if you are able to accumulate over 50,000,000c really quickly (usually through boosting with high-level governors), you can build the Langrage Academy, which allows you to freely adjust culture.
  • Use Aerostat Platforms to decrease heat.
    • Alternatively, if you are able to accumulate over 50,000,000c really quickly, you can build the Soletta, which allows you to adjust heat in range from 187,200mK to 387,000mK.
  • Use Biofixture Labs to decrease pressure.
  • Decrease pressure to 0 Pa to remove all the oxygen and complete the third milestone.
  • Use Hab Domes and Spaceports to increase population.
    • Beware of the frozen or vaporized water. To prevent potential flooding, either:
      • Lower the temperature below 200,000mK.
      • Place cities at very high elevation.

Random Events[]

These random events can only happen during this live event. All live-event-exclusive random events have the title of their respective live event.

Temperature Increase[]

The Gaians have tapped into a thermal vent to warm up the surface!

Our temperature has changed by [number] mK.

Increases temperature.

Pressure Increase[]

The Gaian have released a massive cloud of atmosphere-thickening gasses!

Our pressure has changed by [number] Pa.

Increases pressure.

Oxygen Increase[]

The Gaians have released hidden stores of pure oxygen to transform the atmosphere!

Our oxygen has change by [number] ppm.

Increases oxygen.

Facility Destruction[]

Gaian insurgents have staged a coordinated strike!

[number] of our facilities have been destroyed:

- [facility] in [city].

Destroys anywhere from one to twelve? (highest recorded) random facilities. These facilities can be in different cities.

In-Game Text[]

After years of struggling, the Sons of Hephaestus are finally getting their day in court.

We have fought for the rights of Mars from the earliest days of human settlement, and for the first time, we are being allowed to make our case in a court with the authority to restore the Red Planet to its natural state.

But the Gaians will do anything to perpetuate their destructive crusade. They know we can win in court, so they are trying to transform the surface as quickly as they can, in the hopes that the court's ruling will be too late, and their control of the planet will remain by a simple inertia.

Hidden agents across the planet are waging a guerilla terraforming campaign. I need you to keep their actions in check, make sure Mars stays as close as possible to its native state until the trial concludes. That is the only way we have a hope of winning.

Milestones[]

Milestones can be viewed by clicking the event icon (in this case it looks like Mars) while you are already on the event world.

This is also the place where you collect your rewards after you have completed the milestones.

Keeping it Cool[]

Mars was meant to be a cold world, but the Gaians are trying to warm it up to derail our case. Return the surface to its native state!

Goal: Decrease temperature to 232,350 mK

Rewards: 5,000,000c, 10 GP

Text after achievement:

Very well done. The planet is nearing its original surface temperature, now we just need to keep it there.

Parting the Clouds[]

The Martian atmosphere is meant to be thin and barren, and that is how it should remain. Stop the Gaians from releasing harmful gasses into the pristine sky!

Goal: Decrease pressure to 5,610 Pa

Rewards: 10 GP, Bronze Governor Pack, 10,000,000c

Text after achievement:

Finally, the clouds have parted and the Martian sky is made new again. Make sure it stays that way.

Clearing the Air[]

Oxygen is not simply a life-giving element, it is also corrosive and toxic when introduced to a planet where it doesn't belong. Scrub it from the atmosphere, before it does even more damage!

Goal: Decrease oxygen to 12,240 ppm

Rewards: Silver Governor Pack, 25 GP, 20,000,000c

Text after achievement:

Nicely done. The Gaians can enjoy all the oxygen they want on their own worlds, but not on ours.

Power to the People[]

Keeping the planet pristine is not enough to secure our claim to it, we must also demonstrate that it is our home. Increasing our population will make it much harder for the Gaians to take it from us.

Goal: Increase population to 2,500,000

Rewards: 6 Fast-Forward Hours, 50 GP

Text after achievement:

With legions of fellow Hephaestians at our back, the Gaians will never be able to take this world from us!

A Home of Our Own[]

The Gaians are trying to steal what is rightfully ours. Can you help us return Mars to its natural state?

Goal: Complete all milestones

Rewards: 10 cards for Neil Jansson, 24 Fast-Forward Hours, 100 GP

Text after achievement:

The judgement has just been announced: the courts have sided with us, and a ban on terraforming operations is now in place.

No Gaian will ever properly appreciate what you have accomplished here, but that does not dimish [sic] it at all. You have saved the identity of this world, and preserved it for future generations to marvel at and enjoy.

Thank you, friend. This was a big thing, and you pulled it off flawlessly.

Important: only press 'Complete Event' when you are ready to leave the event world, because you cannot continue playing that same world after that. You also can't restart and complete this event more than once.
