The Time Capsule is a feature in Atomicrops which allows the player to begin a new run with some Items under certain circumstances.

Obtaining the Time Capsule[]

In order to unlock the Time Capsule, the Camp holding the Historian Ant must be found and cleared of Enemies. Once this is done, the ant will move to the Farmhouse. Here, the Historian Ant will offer certain permanent upgrades (Home Improvements) in exchange for CornucopiaCostIcon.png Cornucopias, some of which allow the player to gain items at the start of a new run. These upgrades will be awarded to the player in the form of a Time Capsule.

Opening the Time Capsule[]

The capsule is found on Spring 1, next to the well on the Farm, and interacting with it will drop all of the items inside. If the time capsule has not been opened by the time the first day is over, it will not spawn again in that run.

The longer the player lasted in the previous run, the more items will be in the Time Capsule. Items from any runs before the previous one cannot be carried over. The Year of either run does not matter, and Daily Runs are also included.

Assuming that all relevant improvements have been purchased, the player will receive the following items on opening the time capsule, depending on which Season they completed in their last run:

Note that players also start the game with 4 Potato seeds. However, these are not obtained from the time capsule and do not have any unlocking requirements, therefore are not included in the above table.

Golden Pupa and Deervil Upgrades can appear in the time capsule.

Tractors, Turrets, Scarecrows and Drones, (including the Alien Pet) are unable to be carried over in the time capsule.

Character-Specific upgrades, such as Lavender's Pollination or Dandelion's Breezy, cannot be carried over. However, Dandelion's Cleats, Crampons and Duck Wings do have a chance to be carried over to other characters in this way.

Wedding Rings also will not be carried over in the time capsule.
