Convert Dead To Weird[edit | edit source]

Convert Dead To Weird is a property with a value of 0.5.

It was added in the Visions update that introduced new Weird (Exotic) biomes by converting previously existing Dead biomes.

Due to this change there is a higher chance to find these biomes, even in yellow star systems as well.
