A dead planet with no atmosphere.

Airless is one of the Biome varieties.

Summary[edit | edit source]

An airless moon with a clear view of other celestial bodies.

Worlds with an Airless biome are characterized by a dearth of flora and fauna, no atmosphere and lower gravity. They have rocky and dusty surfaces and are comparable to some real life airless terrestrial bodies, such as Mercury or the Moon. These worlds tend to have higher amounts of resources compared to other biomes. Bring sufficient Oxygen Capsules, Life Support Gels, Oxygen and Dioxite when exploring these worlds, as they increase the strain on Life Support.

Yellow stars in Tranquil galaxies have 1/4 the chance to have airless planets, and yellow stars in Ancestral galaxies have 2x the chance, compared to other star types.

Unlike other biomes, airless worlds never contain any structures such as Trading Posts, although airtight bases can still be built by players.

While no ordinary fauna appear in these worlds, players can still encounter Whispering Eggs that spawn Biological Horrors. While Whispering Eggs occur only at Abandoned Buildings on other biomes, Whispering Eggs spawn anywhere on the surface of airless worlds.
