System colors classify star systems based on color.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The color of a star provides many clues as to what forms of life, resources, and other items appear on its planets.

Yellow systems[edit | edit source]

  • Warp Reactor Required: Hyperdrive
  • Unique Resource: Copper.
    • Note: these resources don't pertain to yellow stars only, they can be found in deposits formed only in yellow stars.
  • Sparse rare materials
  • All systems will be inhabited by a sentient race.

Green systems[edit | edit source]

Blue systems[edit | edit source]

  • Warp Reactor Required: Indium Drive
  • Unique Resource: Indium
  • Abundant rare materials
  • Average chance for uncharted and inhabited systems, low chance for abandoned systems.

Red systems[edit | edit source]

  • Warp Reactor Required: Cadmium Drive
  • Biome probabilites remain the same in each galaxy types
  • Unique Resource: Cadmium
  • Uncommon rare materials
  • Very high chance for Uncharted systems, low chance for inhabited systems.

Biome probabilities[edit | edit source]

When visiting a certain galaxy type, the probabilities of discovering various planet biomes are as follows.

For example, finding a Lush biome in yellow star systems are 2x more likely to appear in a Balanced galaxy than in an Abandoned galaxy.
