More quality Bioware writing. Maybe someone on their staff should have read a "science for dummies" guide before trying to write a sci-fi script.

Well yeah, if you land on a planet that looks like this what do you think you would be collecting?

These are listed as two separate resources in the video and apparently in the UI. So in case you are unaware, this:

can be turned into this:

We haven't seen anything to suggest that there are separate categories for water and ice especially when we also know you have to collect resources like titanium, but if we are going to use that video as evidence then there isn't any room in the UI for elements like those. So clearly that videos display doesn't mean much in terms of what we will get in the game

Maybe the "ice" isn't dihydrogen monoxide

Millions of people migrating to Andromeda, but no one brought a freezer.

Alright guys, we're here!

Oxygen? Check.
Food supplies until we can get established? Check.
Beer to drink? Check
Ice cold freezers to cool said beer?...

"Hey, uh, guys? We forgot the freezers."

"What? I told you guys, specifically, to pack some freezers in before we left."

"I thought that was Russ' job?"

"No, no... not Russ. You!"

"Guess we're drinking our beer warm until the pathfinder can find some ice then. Good going guys, really, great job..."

And that's why we have to look for ice.

When someone simply refers to ice without any context or qualifiers (i.e. dry ice), they are talking about frozen water. Even wikipedia states: "Ice is water frozen into a solid state."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice

So there's really no way around this. Bioware writers are just not the sharpest knives in the drawer. Which isn't surprising after we've seen their writing efforts in Mass Effect 3, DA2, and DA:I. Also, it looks like I wasn't the only one to notice this.
