But once they started seriously considering settling down (Kobol, New Caprica, etc.) they never once mentioned terraforming or anything resembling it. New Caprica would've been the ideal time to drop at least a reference to it. From everything presented on screen there was no evidence that the Colonials had any capabilities that could modify a planet's climate or atmospheric composition.
Well, if they didn't have the technology with them, nor the ability to replicate it, I see no reason why it would come up in conversation (much of the settling of New Caprica takes place in the one year jump off-screen, anyway).
