Planet Environment, preferred resource focus?

#1 Post by anahata » Sun May 27, 2012 3:31 am

Hey all, regarding planet environments, is there a cheat sheet as to which resources a planet type is better at producing when that is the focus resource (specials excluded)? For example, desert planet = minerals, terran planet = food, etc. I thought there was something like that posted back in the v0.3 days but I may have been mistaken. Thanks!

There is no such correspondence now. How good a planet is for farming depends on how much your species likes the environment type. I don't think there is any correlation between minerals and environment.

em3 is right. planet environments have no inherent characteristics -- it all depends on your species, and how close it is to their idea.
