Venus is the name of the 4th and latest dimension to be added in Galacticraft 4. It is a Nether-like place with steep mountains, vapor, lava and lots of dangers.

Accessing

The Venus entry.

To access Venus, the player needs a Tier 3 Rocket to travel to it. Once accessed, the player will land on the surface with the aid of an Entry Pod.

Besides the Breathing Equipment, the player must be also wearing Tier 2 Thermal Paddings in order to survive in the hostile environment once outside the Entry Pod.

Environment

Day-night cycle, sky and weather

  • Day length: 10 hours, 30 Overworld days (720,000 tics). ~5.5 hours daytime, ~4.5 hours nighttime.
  • It is highly recommended to bring a Cryogenic Chamber to skip long nights.

Tip: Divide Overworld days (from debug screen, F3) by 15. If the result is: even number = daytime, odd = nighttime

The sky:

The Venus sky.
  • The Sun moves backwards in the sky: rises in the west and sets in the east.

  • Nighttime: the Overworld and stars barely can be seen. It's dark, really.
