    Antidotes, but you'll need to chug one every 5 minutes to keep yourself from getting poisoned by the ocean. I usually take a couple along just to get me to and from the ocean floor of toxic planets.

    They're not stackable, oddly enough.

    Nothing seems to protect from the acid rain, though.

    too bad they didn't choose purple for the color of the poison

    it would have made precipitation on toxic worlds much more... Regal.

    That sounds like a good idea for the surface, but I also want to try to go under.

    Poison EPP augment works miracles. You won't be affected by poison at all.

    Antidotes work for the poison itself, but for some reason you still take damage from the poison rain. I traversed a poison ocean planet lately to collect Toxictop. I found the best strategy was to stay about half a screen below the poison water surface when swimming between islands. This prevents you from taking damage from poison rain, and the antidote protects against the rest. Took me about 10 minutes to get all the Toxictop I'll ever need.

    That rain is acid rain, not poison (it doesn't poison you)

    Well for the acid rain I would suggest a good umbrella. Or an umbrella HAT!
    Unfortunately, there's a galactic shortage of those right now, because for some reason Earth was the only planet producing them.

    get poison resitance augmentation, just jump in dig oyueself a hle, cove rit and remove the poion use some heal at some times. then you are under it.
    But sadly there is nothing special of interest there you can't find on other planets so just a waste of time.

    Patents are a thing in the future too.
