The surface of a moon.
Moon is a primary biome type characterized by dead airless worlds with no plants or life. Because moons have no atmosphere there is no color in the sky, simply a view of nearby planets and stars day and night. Moons are an 'unknown' threat level, the ghosts on moons are deadly to players at all progression levels. Aside from ghosts there are no other dungeons, monsters or enemies to encounter.

Moons often have low gravity, which increases player jump height and slows fall speed.

The primary reason to travel to moons is to gather fuel for ship travel. There's an abundance of glowing Crystal Erchius Fuel and Liquid Erchius Fuel located on moons. Every system has a moon, usually orbiting a larger planet type. Because moons can be found in every system, there's never a situation where players will be stuck in a system unable to gather the fuel required to leave.

Moons can be found orbiting all star types. Unless players have an Breathing EPP equipped they'll slowly run out of air while on moons, eventually taking damage when they've completely run out.

Erchius Ghosts are the only unique monster found on moons. While on the surface players will have the spooked debuff, which draws ghosts toward them. The longer players remain on the surface the more ghosts will appear.

Navigation Console

  • This moon supports no life and has no atmosphere. However, fuel is abundant here - scans indicate that there is a wealth of it buried below the surface.
  • This vacant moon has no breathable atmosphere, but there are caverns below ground that contain vast fuel deposits. In summation: useful, but not enticing.
  • A lonely moon with no breathable atmosphere; the sky is open to the stars, there is fuel below the ground. Likelihood of feeling lonesome and desolate: 92%.

Materials

The surface layer of moons is primarily made up of moondust, along with moonrock and moonstone. The color of the moon in the navigation console closely matches the hue the materials on the moon will have.

Moons do not have a lava core; instead, their cores are made of very hard stone. When you are deep down and your camera will not go any further, you are at the core. If you touch the bottom edge you'll die instantly.

Crystal Erchius Fuel and Liquid Erchius Fuel can be seen glowing faintly purple beneath the ground. Liquid Erchius is found in greater abundance in caves below ground, while ore can often be found near the surface.

Sub Biomes

Moon planets do not have any sub biomes which appear, and moons do not appear as a sub biome on any other planet types.

Mini Biomes

There are no mini-biomes found on the surface or underwater on moons.

Weather

Weather on moons is either clear, luminous rain, or small meteorites. Weather happens for each planet based on a probability for each weather type to occur; the probability for weather types on moons is as follows:

Clear.png Clear (70%)
Glowingrain.png Luminous Rain (7%)
Smallmeteorstorm.png Small Meteorites (3%)

Wild Crops

There are no wild crops unique to moons, and since there are no mini or sub biomes there's no chance of finding any crops of any kind on the surface.

Wildlife

There's only one monster type found on moons; Erchius Ghosts. These monsters are unique to moon biomes, and cannot be found on other planet types. They'll pursue the player, draining life if they get too close. They cannot be killed, but move slowly enough so they can be avoided. They ensure players get in, get their fuel, and quickly exit moons.

There are no critters or bugs which can be found on moons.
