Planet Info

Planet information is listed as follows; if something is not present, it will not be listed. gas giants contain info on their rings, trojan asteroids, and uninhabited moons. Inhabited gas giant moons have their own page?

Planet Type – UWP (see below)
Star System – Orbit #

  • Size: As a fraction of Earth.
  • Atmosphere: Atmosphere type (see below).
  • Hydro: % of surface covered by liquid or ice, usually water.
  • Temperature: average surface temperature.
  • Native Biosphere: complexity of native life, if any present.

UWP

“Universal World Profile” as in Traveller. This information is expanded upon in a planet’s page, so the numbers do not have to be memorized. Condenses info in a single line:
X-ABCDEF-10

“X” – Starport type
“A” – Size
“B” – Atmosphere
“C” – Hydro Percentage x 10 (5 = 50%, etc)
“D” – Population, log10 (The “number of zeros after the 1” – pop 1 = 10’s, pop 6 = 1,000,000’s)
“E” – Government Type
“F” – Law Level. Not used in this game.
“10” – Tech Level. Indicates local level of sustainable industry. Not used?

Except for tech level, numbers are hexidecimal: 1-9, 10=A, 11=B, 12=C, etc.
