Planet with two moons

A moon is an astronomical body.


Dots around a planet indicate moons

A moon is an astronomical body and a natural satellite of a planet. It can be landed on, and treated in the same way as a planet.

Moons occur in fewer numbers in the galaxies than planets do, with the maximum orbiting a specific planet being two. This limits a system's maximum moons to four as only six stellar objects are generated in any particular star system.

In the Discoveries menu, moons are indicated with the DUI MOON.png icon.

Known moons[]

For a list of known moons, see the Moons category page.

Three moons were recognized in the pre-release videos:

Additional information[]

  • The rules for orbit gravity have been modified to allow moons to orbit closer to their planets than the laws of Newtonian physics would normally allow.
  • When creating a new page for a moon, use the Moon option from the list of pre-load templates.
  • Moons however are pangean in nature with regards to biomes.
  • Moons are usually about 1/6 the size of the planet they orbit.
  • All moons have an Outer Atmosphere (can be reached by base building) which leads directly to the Space around the moon.


The following list displays moons that are likely to be using the Planet infobox instead of the Moon infobox.
