Properties[edit | edit source]

Drowning alert

Water in Empyrion: Galactic Survival currently does not flow, and behaves as a semi-transparent block with no hitbox. Players can see the world around them with a blue/green hue (depending on the type of water). Players can swim in or under water. Players start to drown immediately if they go underwater without a helmet on. Drowning adds a red hue to the display and shows the alert "You have no Oxygen to Breathe" at top right corner of the HUD. Particle effects of splashing water can be seen if any vessel flies/hovers close to the water. Drones can see and shoot players when underwater. Other mobs can see players, but don't go into the water, making it a safe retreat location when chased by non-Drone mobs. Drones and alien base turrets will fire on submerged players as they would above water should the player be within line of site and range.
