Ice is a resource that can be found in Snow Worlds and in Elven Biomes. It can be used to make items exclusive to these ambients.

Behaviour[ | ]

Falling[ | ]

When the block under it is removed, snow blocks and ice blocks fall after a few seconds, just like sand, but with an interesting difference: it will not fall if there is a block of ice or snow next to it, either above, to the right or to the left[1].

Producing water[ | ]

After being placed underground by a dwarf, a block of snow will melt into water after approximately 12 seconds, and will produce a 1-block-wide puddle of water, which generates 1 water bag after being collected. It is though more efficient to use ice in this process. Four snow blocks are used to produce 1 ice, and this will melt, after the same dozen seconds, into a full block of water (or a 5-block-wide puddle of water), which generates 5 water bags after being collected. The ice option will spare 80% of dwarf placing actions and 80% of waiting time (for blocks to melt).

1 snow block placed ≈ 12 sec a 1/5 block of water collecting 1 water bag
1 ice block placed ≈ 12 sec a full block of water collecting 5 water bags
Melting ice

Cistern dedicated to the production of water in the Snow World: the ice placed on a bridge melts and the water is retained with a layer of stone from where dwarfs can easily collect it.
