Description

Uveto VII is a moon orbiting the furthest gas giant in the Siretta system. While the system was opened in the 10th planet rush and many of its terrestrial planets were terraformed, the early settlers ignored Uveto VII as it appeared a frozen wasteland with nothing of interest on its surface. Nowadays several companies mine the frozen moon for its precious resources. These companies include RhenWorld, Akkadi and Xenogen. Largely covered in ice, with an internal ocean and wracked by extreme seasonal lightning storms, the planet is hostile and unforgiving -- but promises great riches to those who can brave its dangers.

Weather

Note that Uveto is an extremely cold and inhospitable environment with a dynamic weather system. Traversing on the surface will inflict cold damage to an unprotected Steele, with the damage varying based on where Steele is and what Steele is currently wearing. Details of how much the cold affects Steele is outlined below:

Freezing Hazard
Location Base Damage
(per minute)
Resistance
Threshold
Outdoor 0.5 25%
Icy Tundra 1.0 35%
Frozen Tundra 1.0 50%
Freezing Hazard Modifiers
Condition Damage Multiplier
Skin Type
Fur (base damage) * 0.5
Chitin or Scales (base damage) * 1.25
Goo or Latex (base damage) * 1.5
Nakedness
Nude (base damage) * 2.0
Not Nude nakedness = 1
No armor: (nakedness) + 0.333
No upper garment or chest is exposed: (nakedness) + 0.333
No lower garment or crotch/ass is exposed: (nakedness) + 0.333
(base damage) * (nakedness)

Steele can completely resist the cold damage if Steele's freezing resistance surpasses the resistance threshold or if Steele is wearing a heat belt.

Natural Hazards

In addition to having to maintain high insulation in order to withstand the blistering cold of Uveto, the player must also be prepared for all kinds of natural occurrences that may prove hazardous to the player's health.

Freezing Hazard Modifiers
Hazard Description Effect
Slippery Ice The player will encounter slippery ice.
  • If the player fails a Reflexes test they will slip and take 15 points of kinetic/crushing damage.
Sudden Snow Storm The player will encounter a blizzard.
  • Lasts 1 in game hour.
  • Decreases accuracy of ranged attacks by 25%
  • Increases the necessary threshold to resist Uveto's cold to 50%
Lightning Strike The player will encounter an electrical storm and be struck by lightning.
  • If the player has active shields protecting them, then the shield will burst.
  • If the player has no shield generator equipped or 0 shield points, they will take 45 points of electrical damage.

The player has a low chance to slip on ice in any outdoor location on the surface of Uveto. The player will only encounter blizzards and electrical storms in the Icy Plains and Frozen Tundra zones of Uveto. Before either of these Hazards manifest the player will receive a warning notification on their Codex that it's getting cloudy and a storm is brewing. For the next hour, the player will have a 53.3% chance of encountering a snowstorm or electrical storm in the Icy Plains and a 66% chance to encounter one in the Frozen Tundra. The player will only be able to effectively predict incoming storms with their Codex if they completed Nayna's Weather Drone Recovery Quest.

Hostiles

General Strategy: All of the hostiles on Uveto have naturally evolved to be excellent at insulating heat to be very resistant to the bitter cold. As such, most of them have 50-100% immunity towards freezing damage. Conversely, they aren't used to extreme heats and their insulating fur can be highly flammable, meaning that they are vulnerable to burning attacks. Mating habits of the native sapients cause individuals to only really get in the mood if they can smell someone of the opposite sex is emitting pheromones from Heat or Rut. As such, tease attacks by default are ineffective against most enemies unless the player has a decent pheromone score. The Uvetans use Barbarian weapons such as axes, clubs, spears, and knives. Unlike the M'hengan's however, a lot more of the natives have been accepting of alien technology, so it is to be expected that they may be armed with the occasional basic firearm and Shield generator.
