1.3 Billion - 633 Million Years ago.

Another supercontinent early in Earth's history, Rodinia's breakup was responsible for creating "Snowball Earth", a period of rapid and intense cooling that left almost the entire planet covered in a towering sheet of ice.

Life, still confined to the oceans, was almost extinguished during this apocalyptic freeze, but as the ice melted and the planet began to warm up again, the survivors would go on to create the richest period of speciation the world has ever known.

About[edit | edit source]

This world is only playable after Vaalbara has been completed. Completing Rodinia will unlock Cambria.

Like on Vaalbara, 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 UNSA / 1.000.000.000c revenue for Horizon Corporation /All Research for Far Future Institute

Regardless of what you did on Vaalbara, 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.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Much like Vaalbara, this planet has a lot of water you will need to get rid of if you want to get it to paradise habitability. Be sure to decrease the amount of water before you increase the temperature, because if you increase the temperature too fast, your planet will flood.

When you start getting rid of Rodinia's water, the planet's brown patches start growing rapidly (results of which can be seen in the image below). This is because the ice covers the brown planet, so it gets exposed when you remove the ice. The game won't call Rodinia 'snowball Earth' for no reason.

How Volcanoes Froze the Earth (Twice)

This world is much, much easier than Vaalbara, having less than 10% its combined water. The strategy is relatively simple as well.

This period of Earth's history is also called snowball Earth (720-630 Ma), because during this period Earth was almost completely frozen, because of an ice house environment. This period ended right before Cambrian explosion - the event when life on Earth developed a lot of species in a short period of time.
