I have season pass, will i get that expansion free' and also will i get the forum icon of that game?

I would simply ask : will this be included with the season pass?

I lost count as it said two packs and two expansion, and I think there was only ONE expansion to date, which was space race, but we had 3 other content (the music plus the design and dome set.

So I suppose this one count as the last expansion of the season pass but would like an official confirmation about that.

P.S. I'm asking because I stupidly bought the previous expansion as I forgot I had a season pass for this game (Paradox surely reimbursed me but anyway, would like to avoid the same issue there)

‘Green Planet’ was first revealed on the steam page for the Season Pass ar least all the way back when Space Race was released, if not earlier. So, its definitely part of the Season Pass. Given that no other unreleased expansions were listed, I’m inclined to think it is the last on the Season Pass.

Anyway, as for the expansion itself, I can’t wait to see footage, and I really like that animation at the end of the trailer. I sincerely hope that true terraforming is a long process and be much more difficult than building wonders.

On a related note, I would love it if paraterraforming is an option. I just want to dome over Valles Marineris in its entirety so badly. Even just doming over one of the canyon maps would scratch that itch.

I’d also like to recommend, for anyone eager to get started on turning Mars green, Terragenesis. A mobile game, with all that implies, but a solid and reasonably scientificaly accurate game for all that. Also, Isaac Arthur has spme great videos on youtube about terraforming, with some emphasis on Mars.

To hazard a guess, basic things like growing some lichen around your domes will probably be available fairly early on. Maybe even before the founder stage.

But true terraforming on the global scale is going to be endgame and, if I'm reading the Steam page right, require the construction of multiple wonders just to get things moving along.

Thank you for the reminder, I had forgotten that, even I'm a early player (I did pre-purchase the game). I did the same mistake with HOI4, stupidly bought an expansion before remembering I was a Season Pass owner ;)

is it possible to screw up terraforming causing a disaster? (please say yes)

According to the Steam summary...yes!

Climate Calamities
Terraforming a planet can have unexpected consequences. If you release too many greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere you can trigger acid rain which reduces soil quality, or if an asteroid slams into the planet it will cause a Marsquake that can disrupt your colony’s production.

Kind of curious if the existing disasters become rarer as you terraform the planet, and get replaced by these. Ie as you make Mars wetter, dust storms get replaced by wind storms that don't block solar panels and give turbines an even bigger boost, but cause heavier matience penalties that can't be mitagated with anti-dust technologies.

Just to elaborate, here’s the entire description on Steam:

Make Mars habitable and build a second home for humanity in Surviving Mars: Green Planet.
Terraforming
Terraform Mars and make the hostile planet habitable for humanity. Each decision you make while managing your colony can affect the Terraforming Parameters, which include the Atmosphere, Temperature, Water, and Vegetation, and ideally brings them closer to habitable levels. Monitor your progress on a planetary scale with the Planetary Overview UI.
Green Mars
Seed the surface of Mars with various lichen, grass, shrubs, or trees and watch as they begin to turn the Red Planet green. Low maintenance plants like Lichen can improve the soil quality to help more complex plants grow while Trees produce high seed yields for your colony to harvest. Be sure to monitor your soil quality levels to keep your plants healthy and growing.
Special Projects
Take on seven challenging Special Projects like melting the polar caps, capturing ice asteroids, launching a space mirror, and more to begin shifting the Terraforming Parameters. Be careful, these projects will have a lasting impact on the planet and can trigger natural disasters!
7 New Wonders of Mars
Construct seven new buildings that can help you terraform the planet or capitalize on the changes. Use the GHG factory to release greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, the Forestation Plant to boost vegetation production, the Water Pump to fill lake bed, and more.
Climate Calamities
Terraforming a planet can have unexpected consequences. If you release too many greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere you can trigger acid rain which reduces soil quality, or if an asteroid slams into the planet it will cause a Marsquake that can disrupt your colony’s production.
