A lush paradise.

Lush is one of the Biome varieties.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Worlds with lush biomes are characterized by colorful grass covering most of the surface. These are essentially the Earth-like planets. Depending on the amount of flora, trees can be sparsely found or sprawl into lush forests. Occasionally, one can find "Barren Lush" worlds where there is an almost, if not complete lack of flora, save for hostile vine whips. When viewed from space, it looks like it's covered by a carpet of grass. The resources Paraffinium, Star Bulb and Nitrogen can be found here.

These planets have the most varied types of Genera.

Some planets in survival and permadeath exist without aggressive sentinel presence.

Yellow stars in Norm and Harsh galaxies have 2x higher chance to have lush planets, yellow stars in Lush galaxies have 4x higher chance, and yellow stars in Empty galaxies have the same chance as other star types.

Types[edit | edit source]

A lush planet with different colors.

Conditions[edit | edit source]

Some lush planets can be rather Earth-like.
  • The weather here is the most ideal, as day and night temperatures don't enable hazard protection.
  • Superheated rainstorms can occur. Hazard Protection drain is similar to being in a storm on a hot biome.
  • Extreme weather lush worlds have seemingly everlasting rain, with superheated rainstorms occurring frequently. These storms are significantly more powerful, draining Hazard Protection in a similar rate as extreme heat storms in hot biomes.

Weather[edit | edit source]

Extreme lush planets are rainy and have scalding hot rain storms.
Clear (No storms) Normal Extreme
Balmy Blistering Damp Blistering Floods
Beautiful Boiling Puddles Boiling Monsoons
Blissful Choking Humidity Boiling Superstorms
Humid Dangerously Hot Fog Broiling Humidity
Light Showers Lethal Humidity Outbreaks Intense Heatbursts
Mellow Mostly Calm Painfully Hot Rain
Mild Rain Occasional Scalding Cloudbursts Scalding Rainstorms
Pleasant Superheated Drizzle Superheated Rain
Refreshing Breeze Sweltering Damp Torrential Heat
Temperate Usually Mild Torrid Deluges

Additional information[edit | edit source]

  • The types and the sequence are extracted from the 1.77 version of NMS_UPDATE3_ENGLISH.MBIN game file.

Release history[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to 1.38 nearly all gaia planets in survival and permadeath had aggressive sentinel presences forcing the player to face some challenge at all times on any given biome.
  • Prior to 1.38, lush worlds in certain areas experienced acid storms instead of cold storms.
  • As of 1.38, heatstorms were added to lush worlds instead of acid storms. It would also replace most if not all cold storms. This coincided with the addition of desert worlds with nightly freezing temperatures.
