Planets are large celestial objects in StarMade that populate the universe and are often used as bases of operations for players.

Overview

Planets are massive Dodecahedron shaped entities that will only spawn in Star Systems. Systems with purple circles usually, but not always, indicates the existence of a planet.

Their surfaces are made up of 12 plates. Depending on the size of the planet each plate could contain anywhere from hundred of thousands to millions of blocks. Every plate is centered around a molten core, the churning mass that keeps the planet together.
