What is new in Icarus February 4 Update?

  • Added settings menu option to automatically skip intro video (once loading is complete).
  • Added Building Upgrade Tool support for all pieces and materials.
  • Added Farm plots now track if they can see the sky straight above them, and if they have any glass buildables around them. No sky, and no greenhouse will lead to a 50% speed reduction in growth. The presence of a greenhouse building will allow full growth speed regardless of seeing the sky directly, and will increase growth speed by 50%.
  • Changed farming to be more dynamic, by decreasing growth time and increasing yield rates for many crop types.
  • Added Mushrooms can now be grown in crop plots.
  • Added more information to tooltips on farming plots and their crops.
