Harsh galaxy is a galaxy type.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Harsh galaxy is a galaxy type and it is referred to in-game as Burning, Raging, Relentless or Ruthless galaxy. These are considered as subtypes for Harsh galaxy.

Players who choose to reset the simulation into a Harsh galaxy during the New Beginnings primary mission, will start again in this galaxy type. This option is displayed with a red hologram.

Versus the Norm Galaxy type, planets are much more likely to be generated with Extreme environments, which makes Activated Stellar Metals, such as Activated Copper, very common in Harsh galaxies.

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.

The following numbered galaxies belong to this type: 3, 15, 23, 35, 43, 55, 63 etc, a total of 26. [1]

Note: The galaxy subtype is indicated in ( ) after each galaxy. It can only be determined by finishing the New Beginnings mission in certain galaxies.
