A moon is an astronomical body.
Summary[edit | edit source]
A moon is an astronomical body and a natural satellite of a planet. It can be landed on, and treated in the same way as a planet.
Moons occur in fewer numbers in the galaxies than planets do, with the maximum orbiting a specific planet being two. This limits a system's maximum moons to four as only six stellar objects are generated in any particular star system.
In the Discoveries menu, moons are indicated with the icon.
Known moons[edit | edit source]
For a list of known moons, see the Moons category page.
Three moons were recognized in the pre-release videos:
Additional information[edit | edit source]
- The rules for orbit gravity have been modified to allow moons to orbit closer to their planets than the laws of Newtonian physics would normally allow.
- When creating a new page for a moon, use the Moon option from the list of pre-load templates.
- Moons however are pangean in nature with regards to biomes.
- Moons are usually about 1/6 the size of the planet they orbit.
