Biomes

Biomes are the environment of a given planet, determining nearly everything about its usability from food production to industry. They range from idyllic Gaia-class planets to hellish Toxic or Volcanic death worlds.

Nearly all Biomes can be upgraded in one way or another, improving their habitability.

List of biomes[edit | edit source]

Legend[edit | edit source]

  • A pollution absorption factor of 1000 means the planet is immune to pollution.
  • The cells percentage is simply the maximum amount of cells available for any given purpose for a given biome type, out of the total number of cells.
  • Terraforming and transformation projects move the planet up one class. Pollution, if not cleaned up, will degenerate a planetary biome one class down once it reaches 100% (eg. a Terran B-class planet becomes a Swamp C-class planet).
