Introduction[edit | edit source]

The solar shade has the ability to lower the temperature of the body it is on. This facility is so enormous that keeping it docked between costs much. Also, of it's nature to block sunlight, biomass will lower gradually. Levels beyond V are only reached through events.

While this is very effective, the aerostat platform may be a better choice than this because aerostats only have credits which cannot be a drawback.

"It's a concept of unparalleled ambition, but that doesn't make it impossible: an enormous solar shade, orbiting between the planet's surface and the sun, cooling the entire planet and allowing us to thin the atmosphere. It will be expensive and it will be difficult, but if successful, it will take our efforts at planetary engineering to a whole new level." - Ingame Description

Level Charts[edit | edit source]

Beginner Mode differs in time needed compared to Normal Mode. The Culture modifiers accounts to the total Biomass, Population, Credits, Research Time and/or Construction Time gained/lost for the buildings/research.
