Everybody needs water, and with Eurybia we hit the jackpot. Drain these oceans and ship them off-world, our customers are waiting.

Making It Rain is a live event that runs occasionally, usually starting at 12am UTC on some Wednesdays. During the event's runtime it can be reached by tapping an icon of Eurybia underneath the icon that allows you to Fast-Forward worlds. Tapping the event icon will take you directly to the event planet. The world is played with the Horizon Corporation faction.

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

This event starts with the Culture values that come with the Horizon Corporation, and you are still restricted to the faction's culture limit (No Knowledge Values) until you build the Lagrange Academy.


This live event is relatively simple. It is around the same difficulty as Under Pressure live event, if not easier.

  • Create 2+ cities, wait for culture revenue and watch culture revenue boosting transmissions and use culture revenue governors for income.
    • Do not use mines as they are very inefficient.
  • Ignore the flooding risk. Even if all the water is liquid, the islands will still be above the sea level.
  • Rush Ice Launchers and place as many as possible into your cities.
  • Use Hab Complexes or Hab Domes and population-increasing facilities to increase building slots.
  • Constantly upgrade your Ice Launchers and build new ones.
    • Pressure may drop below 600 Pa and the water might freeze. Do not worry about this as Ice Launchers still remove water even when it is ice or vapor.
  • Use water-reduction governors.

In-Game Text[]

Hey, Terry. Your nickname is Terry, right? Oh whatever, it is now.

Terry, do you know what is the most vital resource in the interstellar economy? It's not metal or food, it's not coffee, it's not even oxygen. It's water. Everybody needs water, from ship captains to terraforming committees to regular consumers, and they're willing to pay for it. There's a lot of water in the universe, but it usually comes in tiny comets and glaciers on useless moons.

Post from TerraGenesis' Facebook for the live event.

Until now. The Horizon Corporation has been granted exclusive rights to Eurybia, a planet with a truly breathtaking amount of water, and our plan is simple: sell it. Drain every last drop off and ship it off-world. I don't care whether it's liquid, ice or vapor, and I don't care what else you do to this planet in the meantime. Just dry it out before the deadline, and there's a bonus in it for you.

Don't disappoint me, Terry.


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

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

You can earn these milestones in any order (except the last one, that one is last).


Who are you? Oh right, Larry. Listen, what part of this do you not understand? Build a city, and start draining the water. It's not rocket science, Larry. Get to work.

Everybody needs water, and with Eurybia we hit the jackpot. Drain these oceans and ship them off-world, our customers are waiting.

Goal: Complete all milestones

Rewards: 10 cards for Vivica Matiba-Cavalcanti.

There's the Gary we all know and love! Nice work, this is exactly the kind of result that I was expecting.

Thanks to us, the Horizon Corporation has seen its most profitable quarter to date. People on every human world are talking about the new business model that we just created, and I've already greenlit three more similar projects for the upcoming fiscal year.

We really did some good work here, Terry. You're welcome for the opportunity.

Important: only click '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.
