Ambient Temperature refers to the temperature of the surrounding and is measured in degrees Celsius. Current ambient temperature can be viewed on the debug screen. (Default Key: F3)

Temperature calculations are such that the average temperature at a given latitude will be similar to the same latitude in degrees north of the equator in a continental (ie non-coastal) location of North America. This means colder winters, warmer summers, hotter equatorial temperatures and bitter polar regions (Current lowest polar temperature on record is -42 C)

The ambient temperature will increase at 6:00 in the morning and decrease at 18:00 in the evening.


Ambient Temperature below Sea Level (y=144) slowly reaches Annual Average Temperature as the player approaches y=100 and remains constant below that point.

Contributing Factors


Ambient temperature affects a number of factors, including:


83.0Underground temp approaches 10°C as you get nearer to y=100 and remains constant below.
84.0Underground temp approaches the annual average temp as you get nearer to y=100 and remains constant below.
85.0Y-value effect on Ambient Temperature won't lower temps below -100° C.
