Hello,
Can't seem to find this in the rules or the forum, so let me throw it out. If either oxygen or temperature reaches maximum on the track, can a player still take a TF rating improvement, or can they not, since the needle can't move any higher?

Thanks.

Nope Sorry. You can only increase your TR if the temp/oxygen actually increases or you place an ocean. So for example if the temp is already at maximum and you play a card that would increase the temp, you can still play that card but you do not get the TR increase.

If you can't move markers then you will not get TR.

Near the introduction, "Global parameters" (emphasis mine)

Quote:
Temperature, oxygen, and ocean are called global
parameters. Whenever you raise one of them, your
terraform rating also increases by that much, giving you a
higher income and score.

When a global parameter has reached its goal, it
can’t be raised any further, and so does not increase your
TR.

See Rules, Page 3, Global Parameters, Paragraph 2:-

“When a global parameter has reached its goal, it can’t be raised further, and so does not increase your TR.”

But you can still get TR from other parameters, as well as separate TR, which some cards may give you (for example Magnetic Field Dome, Release of Inert Gases).

Also, too: you can play cards and Projects that raise the maxxed out parameter (e.g., greenery) but placing the greenery does not increase the parameter, and THUS does NOT score TR increase or the resultant income increase. You would get the VP for the placed greenery and any owned city it is adjacent to.
