Wait, if the pressure is big enough, icecaps might not form, so, why is the icecap requrement?

The icecaps are a requirements because the goal of this challenge is to find a snowball world.

Neither of these have icecaps, so they don't count. But thanks for the finds anyway!

In your second example, I would say, a highly developed civilization, which somehow prevented that the planet freezes over! biggrin

Ok, the search of a snowball world is a good idea. smile

Or at least the closest thing to it. It would be cool if we found an oceania with just a tiny strip of ocean in the middle happy

This is my entry. It's pretty tame.

Temperature is a mere -48.899 degrees. Although there are ice caps, they are barely visible. (There is one visible in the image, it requires a discerning eye to distinguish it from the surrounding ocean.)

Location: RS 5336-2-8-11597534-60 B3 (Version: 0.9.7.4 RC2)

After a little more searching, I think I've found your snowball planet. biggrin

Temperature is around -49 degrees, and as a bonus it has life. biggrin

I've found your snowball planet

This is a good start for the challenge, but it still only covers half the surface. Certainly a new temperature record. Anyone find an oceania covered with more ice?

This is a tide-bound planet. Such planets are always frozen on one side. The should not count. wink

Not necessarily. I've found my fair share of tidally-locked Oceanias and Terras that lack ice caps. wink

Naturally there should be tide-bound planets without ice caps, in systems with multiple suns,
But I still have not found a planet where this is the case.

Of course, I mean planets, no moons

Awhile back I found an oceania with about 85-90% ice coverage, never saved the location though cry




Living among the stars, I find my way. I grow in strength through knowledge of the space I occupy, until I become the ruler of my own interstellar empire of sorts. Though The world was made for the day, I was made for the night, and thus, the universe itself is within my destiny.
