Ice is one of the three planet types in Space Empires IV. The other two are rock and Gas giant.

Ice worlds are have a thick crust of ice covering an ocean, which in turn covers the entire planet. Life on such planets would probably live in the ocean beneath the ice, although they might conceivably live above it.

A real life example of an ice world is Europa, one of Jupiter's moons.
