Snow is found covering the peaks of Mountain biomes and can be obtained by digging. It is used to craft Snowmen, Snowballs, and, most importantly, the healing item Cold Compress. It decays 12 hours after being collected (both at sea level as well as inside of structures), even when stockpiled. In cellar, snow melts slower.

It can be melted by placing it into a lit cauldron. Cauldron should have at least 5 liters of boiling water. Each snow piece converts to 1 liter of water roughly in 1 minute which adds to cauldron. Water quality is not affected by cauldron.

  • Winter Garden (2022-09-20) >"Added snow. It now snows during winter. Not that many effects yet, except whirling snowflakes are more common during it. Aesthetics!"
  • Harvest Skis (2021-10-21) >"Forest and Pave type tiles now have their own snow map textures, leaving the terrain more differentiated during winter."
  • Burning Harmonica (2016-03-30) >"Snow now melts in 12h at sealevel, rather than five minutes. Snowmen now melt in ~3.5 RL days at sealevel, rather than five minutes."
