Endless planets to visitEdit
Planets in Starbound are entirely procedurally generated and filled to the brim with unique content. We went into the planet generation with one simple goal: no two planets should be the same. By procedurally generating even the smallest details, we’re doing just that. Not only is the terrain of the planet procedurally generated, but the weather, the gravity, the difficulty level, the plant life, the behaviour and appearance of alien creatures, and much more all contain random or procedurally generated elements.
Players will be able claim a planet as their own, changing their base of operations from a space-station to that planet. Once a planet is designated as a homeworld, players will be able to build terraforming stations to change the vegatation, and weather stations to control the weather.
Planets will be generated with difficulty levels ranging from 1-100. Developer Tiy stated that planets with level 100 difficulty will be hard to traverse even for players with endgame armor.
