Npc noob full I don't think boots are supposed to stick to concrete… Comp civJob ice icon Build the Ice Factory
Reward: XP 500
Followup: Too Cool for School
Start mission
Npc sergeant full Captain, we have to do something about this heat! I can't style Mr. Purrface's fur when it's this muggy!
Npc cat full~ipad Hiss!
Npc mechanic full~ipad It's gettin' so sticky, my plastic explosives are actin' all funny!
Morgan2 Okay, besides the point that none of my booze tastes good when it's warm and watery, what Zoey said is absolutely terrifying.
Any ideas, Floyd? That don't involve meddling with the laws of nature?
Npc engineer full~ipad But that's what Scientists DO! Fortunately, I do have an alternative: an ice factory with a built-in water filtration system. Clean, clear ice and ice-related products on demand!
Morgan2 And exponentially less likely to create killer monsoons than your weather machine. Have at it, Floyd.
Finish mission
Npc engineer full~ipad A triumph in civil engineering! Efficient, quiet, and best of all, environmentally friendly!
Morgan2 Yeah, well, environmental friendliness doesn't cut it when we have an overheated Outpost. We need to upgrade it to meet demand.
Npc engineer full~ipad We can't. The resources and pollution needed for the factory to run at a higher rate would cause a massive warming trend in the atmosphere. I project that it would raise the average temperature by half a degree annually over the next ten years.
Morgan2 So there'd be no consequences NOW, right? Then upgrade that sucker! Upgrade it until we squeeze every drop of efficiency from it! Who cares about future generations when my office is too warm!

Npc engineer full~ipad I really should have seen that coming.

Too Cool for School[]

Level: 15 Prereq: Ice, Ice Baby
Morgan2 Hurry up, before I get sweat stains on my uniform. Comp civJob ice icon Upgrade the Ice Factory to Level 10
Reward: XP 3,500, Resource-nanopod 40
Level 2
Npc sergeant full Uh oh… Morgan's barricaded himself in the ice factory.
Level 3
Npc trooper full I NEED COLD! NOW! Get into that factory at all costs!
Level 4
Morgan2 No! Go away! My ice! Mine!!
Level 5
Morgan2 Seriously, guys, go shoot some Rebels or something.
Level 6
Npc flametrooper full I'll burn the factory down before I let anyone keep all the ice for themselves!
Level 7
Morgan2 I'm starting to get mildly concerned about the riots I'm causing…
Level 8
Npc-portrait-Big Game Hunter Oi, I'm sendin' in Mamie, the overly affectionate mammoth!
Level 9
Morgan2 Aagh! I surrender! I surrender! I'll share the ice, I swear!
Finish mission
Npc mechanic full~ipad Well, the factory should now be able to make enough ice for everyone. We can even build an ice cream stand with all our extra! Problem solved!
Npc engineer full~ipad Except for our befoulment of the environment. Now the entire region will get hotter and hotter every year — including this Outpost!
Morgan2 So it's lucky that the ice factory is at max capacity, so we can beat the increasing heat! See, everything works out in the end!

Npc engineer full~ipad That's not—! You're missing the—! Arrgh!
