Asteroid Fields have very low gravity, which increases player jump height and slows fall speed. This makes movement between floating asteroids considerably easier, but it's still recommended to equip techs and tools for travel. Multi-jump tech is very useful, in conjunction with sonic sphere and grappling hooks or climbing ropes
Asteroid Fields can be found orbiting all star types. Unless players have an EPP equipped they'll slowly run out of air while in asteroid fields, eventually taking damage when they've completely run out. Any EPP can provide players with the air they need to survive.
Skimbus is the only monster type found in asteroid fields.
- A bare cluster of asteroids. Readings indicate there is no atmosphere or life here. Just endless nothingness, with plenty of space for construction.
- A lifeless band of asteroids without atmosphere: drifting through space, anchored to a distant star... A nice place to build a house.
- A clutch of asteroids drifting along an elliptical orbit. Readings indicate there is no atmosphere here. Or anything else for that matter...
Asteroid fields are made up of a variety of floating islands of rock. They can be traveled between by jumping or using techs or tools, but are not physically connected. There's no 'planet core' in asteroid fields, after falling long enough players will reach the bottom of the biome and be instantly killed.
There's no plant life or water of any kind found naturally in asteroid fields.

Asteroid fields do not have any sub biomes, and are not found as a sub biome on any other planet type.
All planets have a similar asteroid layer above their upper atmosphere, which has a similar appearance, ore and monster profile. These mini biomes or gravity characteristics of asteroid fields.
There are no mini biomes which can be found in asteroid fields.
Weather in asteroid fields is either clear with a chance of spacedust, or clear with a chance of spacedust, meteor showers or large meteors. Each asteroid field has one of these two pools of weather, and it will not change. Asteroid fields without a meteorite shower chance will never have meteor shower weather. Unlike regular planets, weather for asteroid fields is not displayed in the ship navigation window.
The probability for weather types in asteroid fields is as follows:
No crops can be found growing in asteroid fields.
There are no drops unique in asteroid fields planets.
There are no villages or dungeons found in asteroid fields, they're too harsh to support any type of settlements. However, a player-made colony can be successfully made here.
There are no villages which appear in asteroid fields
There are no dungeons which appear in asteroid fields
