Terrain

Jump to: navigation, search

Terrain on a planet in Starbound is a procedurally generated set of blocks that create hills, valleys, oceans, lakes, ponds, and skies. Starbound's generation system works in categories, with one of the more important choices that can be made functioning to change the surface terrain. So far, certain Biomes can only house on certain terrain; these limitations are detailed below.
