Random Planets with Lights?
« on: August 23, 2018, 02:09:08 PM »
So, I just came back on to US2 and I started to make a solar system, but when i placed a terrestrial planet, a bunch of random lights appeared on it. Does anyone know why?

Also, when i placed an atmosphere, the temp rose quickly (which is normal) but the lights disappeared when it hit 100C, implying that the living things on it died...?

Also again, the lights don't match earths which is strange.

 ??? ???

There is a very small chance that random rocky planets will have city lights on them. There's debate over whether this is a feature or a bug... so it's up to you.  :D But regardless, it is purely visual and not really a sign of life or habitability. We plan to add basic life simulation in the future that will allow for simple vegetation to grow.

I like to see city light on planets because it makes planets appear to have cities on them. City light is not a bug. For life simulation, I would like to see greenery and vegetation grow on terraformed rocky planets.
