We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Star system

A star system is a system of planets and other objects that orbit a star.

Summary[edit | edit source]

These procedurally generated systems are the seat of all planets and worlds in the game. Most of the planetary systems in No Man's Sky will most likely never be visited.

They are also known as solar systems or planetary systems.

Information on Galaxy Map[edit | edit source]

After Atlas Rises the UI for the Galactic Map was redone and it now shows key information regarding the system selected. The Information that is displayed is:

Note: Update 1.38 restored Spectral class to the Galactic Map.

Classification[edit | edit source]

There are four colors of star system, but as of Atlas Rises the letter and number has been removed.

  • Yellow star systems are the most common.
  • Red star systems, uncommon, can only be accessed with Warp Reactor Sigma., only Red star systems will have planets with Rubeum.
  • Green star systems, rare, can only be accessed with Warp Reactor Tau, only Green star systems will have planets with Viridium.
  • Blue star systems, rare, can only be accessed with Warp Reactor Theta, only Blue star systems will have planets with Cymatygen.

Influence on Planet Generation[edit | edit source]

Planet Generation parameters are influenced by star system types, as well as galaxy types. However, galaxy types only alter yellow star systems, therefore red, green and blue stars have similar parameters across all galaxies.

  • The odds for exotic biomes, in any galaxy, are: Green (x1) < Blue (x2) < Red (x3). In Imperfect and Raging galaxies, yellow stars will never have exotic planets. In Tranquil and Ancestral galaxies, yellow stars have the same chance for exotic planets as green stars.
  • In Imperfect and Raging galaxies, yellow stars have 2x more chance to have lush planets.
  • In Tranquil galaxies, yellow stars have 4x more chance to have lush planets, and 4x lower chance to have dead planets, compared to other stars in that galaxy.
  • In Ancestral galaxies, yellow stars have 2x more chance to have dead planets, and lush planets have the same chance as other stars in that galaxy.

Classification Exceptions[edit | edit source]

Not all star systems are distinguishable according to spectral class, including star systems containing:

Star systems containing these objects are classified according to the specific object they contain, rather than the star's spectral class.

Concentration of star systems[edit | edit source]

A concentration of star system's.

It is possible to find a concentration of star systems in the galaxy. Those concentration are extremely rare and have a colorful blur. It is unknown if those stars are any different from the standard. Multiple blue, red and green stars can be found in these.
