Devlog #4: Greenhouse

Dear Martians!

One of the most important and also challenging task, will be to establish reliable food source on Mars. In order to achieve this, you will need to grow crops, because plants are the major source of food and oxygen on the Red Planet. You will have to build martian greenhouses for growing various plants.



Greenhouse

Greenhouse is a large building intended for cultivating plants in controlled environment. It provides required conditions for plant growth, such as: temperature, lighting and irrigation. You can control conditions in the greenhouse using a terminal. Moreover, it can also be used for air revitalization, water recycling, waste recycling and food processing.

In the greenhouse you can use two methods of growing plants, such as: hydroponics (without soil, in hydroponic pot / container filled with water rich in minerals and nutrients) and traditional method - direct to soil. Plants growing in hydroponic pots or containers, have different needs than plants growing in the soil. You can generate the soil from organic material using the composter.
The greenhouse also has a folding shield which helps you protect your crops during solar storms.

Plants cultivation

First, start seeds in a small hydroponic pots, which you can find on the side of the greenhouse. When seedlings grow taller, you can plant them directly to the soil, and then to the large containers. Plants need light (for the photosynthesis), carbon dioxide, water and nitrogen. Ideal soil should be rich in Nitrogen, which is a natural fertilizer that help plants grow healthy. If soil doesn’t contain enough nitrogen - plants will grow really slow and weak.

Greenhouse is filled with the equipment which will help you with the cultivating, such as:
  • seed planting tool;
  • containers and pots;
  • hydroponic farm;
  • plant incubator;
  • seed modification device;
  • organic composter;
  • terminals for controlling the conditions of a greenhouse.

Remember that your plants are quite fragile, you can’t allow the greenhouse to lose pressure, otherwise your food supplies may quickly disappear.



One greenhouse should be enough for a few colonizers, but you will need to build more of them if you want to grow your colony. Later you will also be able to build garden domes, but that’s a story for another time ;)

Devlog #3

Dear Martians!

In previous devlogs we focused on tools, so today it’s time to get familiar with one of the vehicles that you will use to explore different regions of Mars.



Quad is a small, four-wheeled vehicle that moves faster than a rover. It has excellent traction on difficult terrain. What is more, it can be modified by adding a rocket engine.



Upgraded atv can reach high speeds, so riding a quad on Mars will be awesome and dangerous!



Quad also has some storage space for necessary tools.
But don’t forget about charging - it’s electric!

That would be all for this week.

About This Game

Occupy Mars is a highly technical, open world, sandbox game about Mars colonisation. Build and upgrade your base, discover new amazing regions, conduct mining operations, retrieve water and generate oxygen, grow crops, fix broken parts, learn how to survive on Mars!



Have you ever dreamt about visiting Mars? We always did! There are so many things to see and discover on the Red Planet, so many exciting technologies to be created, so many challenges to overcome! Humanity can do this and become a multi-planetary civilisation!



Build and upgrade your base, make sure that there is enough water, oxygen, power and food to survive. Build greenhouses, oxygen tanks, fuel generators, connect all the pipes and cables, remember about proper cable management.



Fix broken parts using realistic electronic components and tools. Learn basics of smd, soldering, using hotair, electronic measurement tools and all the details necessary to fix your equipment.



Explore different regions of Mars in search for valuable resources, discover mining sites and find the best place to build a city. Remember that you need to find a relatively levelled area with good access to underground water in place where temperatures don't drop too much during the night.



Experience open world, sandbox game with realistic day / night cycle and overcome real challenges that colonists have to face. Build solar arrays and batteries for energy storage, upgrade them and find the optimal way to power your colony.



Occupying Mars is not always fun and games. Sometimes things will explode, break or go not exactly as planned. Learn to cope with "Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly". Sometimes you have to really act quickly before you run out of air, food or energy.



Upgrade your vehicles and equipment in your garage. Organise your workshop and modify your rover. Change crane hydraulics, operate the robotic arm, dig for valuable resources, build mining rigs and more...

...but most importantly HAVE FUN on Mars!
