Some building processes use liquid resources from the environment, either to water plants or to simply harvest parts of the liquid itself.

Production processes that use liquid from the environment are not affected by the visible presence of liquid at or near the building. They are also unaffected by visible rainfall. When processes gather liquid from the environment, the probability of success is based solely on a worldwide liquid presence percentage, which appears in survey reports as the liquid surface coverage of the world.

Water in the Environment

Water in the environment is used by some buildings.

Treatment plants and hydroelectric power plants that use water in the environment must be placed on the coast of a body of water.

Farms and orchards use the water in the environment if there is no water in the city's inventory.

Lava in the Environment

Lava is an extremely hot liquid forming oceans on worlds in the inferno orbit zone.

It functions in all respects like water, except contact with it will do high amounts of damage very quickly to any creature, spacecraft or vehicle.

treatment plants can be placed on the coast to extract magmex from lava.

Supercooled Liquid in the Environment

Supercooled liquid is found on planets in the frigid orbit zone.

It is equivalent to lava in that when in direct contact with it, receiving high amounts of freezing damage from the extreme cold.

treatment plants placed on coasts near this liquid can produce myrathane.
