Can Mega-Exotic Worlds be updated to potentially be Garden Worlds?[edit source]
I've just come across an amazing Mega-Exotic planet that's certainly a Garden world in all but name.
- It has minimal sentinel activity.
- Storms are gentle and infrequent.
- It has abundant plant life. 22 species of plants were found in the initial survey alone! This exceeds even the average Lush world. 6 of those are trees, making for interesting variation in the forests when moving inland from the coasts.
- The ground is covered in thick, lush grass with frequent flowers.
- Despite being listed as fauna being undetected, interesting animal species can be found everywhere, yet none have been discovered which are hostile to Travelers.
- Background toxicity and radiation are minimal.
The only thing different between this world and any Lush perfect Garden world is the name of its planet type and the color of it's sky. Arguably one could even say it would rank better as it has a higher than average variety of flora, and being a Mega-Exotic has taller trees.
- I'm setting up all the info to create a System and Planet page for it now and will include some photos. I'd like to finish cataloging everything in-game and update the GC's civspace rules before posting coordinates openly. Ertosiangel (talk) 17:56, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
- The planet's page has been set up and includes a couple of screenshots: Myrkr-Skogr lil'Seidhr Ertosiangel (talk) 20:02, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
- As of the current moment I have been reluctant to change the ruling on Mega Exotic worlds. While yes there are occasions where you find a planet such as this one they tend to be very rare. In the case of Lush and Frozen planets there is such a high probablity of a discovered planet being a potential garden world that they have secured their place on the list. An arguement could probably be made to place them on the list with Barren worlds however with many of the Mega Exotics having such extremes in appearance and environments I have left them off for now.

- I have another example of Mega Exotic planet without any enviroment danger, without any storm, with low sentinel activity, without any predator, with ocean and with abundant and varyed flora and fauna. Azel. It's in Sudzerbal but I can provide taxi to anyone willing to check the planet. Ygolnac (talk) 20.41, 13 May 2020 (GMT +1)
- The examples of Mega Exotic the meet criteria of garden planets are growing fast. Blar-Klo lig'Seidhr is an example with mega flora, and another one that I'm still documenting with mega flora too is present. If you specifically look for Mega Exotic garden worlds it seems that finding one is rather common. Of course the sample is still small, I could just have been lucky to having found two of them in an evening. Also there's not a subtype that specifically have constant garden features. The ones without mega flora seem to be rather rare, differently from the ones having mega flora. The only discrimating thing you can discern from orbit, aside sentinel activity, is the presence of activated minerals. These minerals are present only in extreme weather conditions when also storm crystals are presents. Ygolnac (talk) 21.45, 15 May 2020 (GMT +1)
Oceanic Desert Garden Worlds?[edit source]
"Currently the only undecided biome is the Desert. While colonies and outposts could be set up on these worlds, deserts usually are harder places to live due to lack of water and the struggle it takes to farm plants."
What do you think of oceanic desert planets? Can these be considered garden worlds, or are they still undecided?
Here's an example:
