Holographic display of a Harsh galaxy

Harsh galaxy is a galaxy type.

Summary[]

Harsh galaxy is a galaxy type and it is referred to in-game as Burning, Raging, Relentless or Ruthless galaxy. These are considered as subtypes for a Harsh galaxy.

Players who choose to reset the simulation into a Harsh galaxy during the New Beginnings primary mission, will start again in this galaxy type. This option is displayed with a red hologram.

Versus the Norm Galaxy type, planets are much more likely to be generated with Extreme environments, which makes Activated Stellar Metals, such as Activated Copper, very common in Harsh galaxies.


Biome probabilities[]

Likast 1 has Wire Cell type Exotic biome and located in a yellow star system (Visions)

When visiting a certain galaxy type, the probabilities of discovering various planet biomes are as follows. Meaning of the line "All" is not yet known, but the most likely explanation is that the probabilities for Biome types of these colored stars (Red, Green, & Blue) do not change based on Galaxy type.

Due to the harsh galaxy missing, the speculation is that this galaxy type is like the norm galaxy, but with more storms.

The values in the table could be interpreted as per the following:

  • 4 - Very high chance
  • 3 - High chance
  • 2 - Normal chance
  • 1 - Low chance
  • 0 - Very low chance

Convert Dead To Weird[]

Convert Dead To Weird is a property with a value of 0.5.

It was added in the Visions update that introduced new Weird (Exotic) biomes by converting previously existing Dead biomes.

Due to this change there is a higher chance to find these biomes, even in yellow star systems as well.

List of Harsh galaxies[]

The following numbered galaxies belong to this type: 3, 15, 23, 35, 43, 55, 63 etc, a total of 26. [1]

Note: The galaxy subtype is indicated in ( ) after each galaxy. It can only be determined by finishing the New Beginnings mission in certain galaxies.
