From One Hour One Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are several biomes in One Hour One Life, from green grasslands to barren badlands. Each biome has resources commonly associated with it, though many can be found in multiple biomes. Biomes can vary in temperature. In the Temperature Overhaul update, deserts and jungles became hotter, and a "Thermal Shock" component was added which causes you to rapidly jump between extreme temperatures if you cross certain biome boundaries without the insulation of clothes. It is no longer advised to stand on desert edges to keep warm. Use a fire instead.

Some races (e.g. black-skinned) are specialized for biomes like the desert, making them the only ones to interact with items and features in that biome. Otherwise, these biomes will be marked "Inhospitable" ("Frigid" for Tundras) and characters will drop their held items if they attempt to enter. Thus, technological progress requires trade or a diverse town.

Grasslands[edit | edit source]

Grasslands generally has wild food, and branches for kindling and tools. Grasslands are cold, but bearable if wearing a full set of clothes.

Yellow Prairies[edit | edit source]

Yellow Prairies are cold, but bearable if wearing a full set of clothes.

Swamps[edit | edit source]

A good place for farms, considering the water for plants (CHECK if relevant any more). Swamps are cold, but bearable if wearing a full set of clothes.

Badlands[edit | edit source]

Badlands are colder than grasslands, though not as cold as tundra.

Tundra[edit | edit source]

Also known as Polar. Bitterly cold.
