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 Breathing Equipment, the player must be also wearing a full set of Tier 2 Thermal Padding - the Thermal Padding is needed even in order to survive while inside the Entry Pod.


Environment

Day-night cycle, sky and weather

  • Day length: 10 hours, 30 Overworld days (720,000 ticks). ~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.
  • Daytime: it's very hard to spot the sun due to haziness and thick clouds.
  • Nighttime: the Overworld and stars barely can be seen. It's dark, really.

Weather:

  • Very hot and corrosive environment. Obtain the Shield Controller to protect your armor against corrosion.
  • Constant lightning storm. The lightning bolts never reach the ground.
  • Frequent acidic rain. The rain never reaches the ground: it is too hot. (Rain seen from build 173.)



Atmosphere

  • The atmosphere is 97% carbon dioxide and 3% nitrogen
  • (Trace elements of other gases are not present in the game)

A Methane Synthesizer can use the atmospheric CO2, so that it does not need a source of carbon.


Gravity and fall damage

  • About 61%.
  • It is possible to jump 2 blocks high.
  • Fall damage starts from 8.46 m.
  • Fatal fall starts from 59.25 m.
