World Name:Name your world here.
Port:Starport or Spaceport
Remarks:Trade Classifications and Remarks
Orbit:Orbit number (decimal) around parent star. This can be adjusted with the arrow buttons.
The world's rotational period is the same as its orbital period and cannot be changed. The Axial Tilt is zero and cannot be changed. One side is always facing towards the star and is permanently day, the other is permanently night. The 'day' and 'night' sides are set to the upper and lower temperature limits which is based on the atmosphere.
The world's rotational period is the same as its orbital period and cannot be changed. The Axial Tilt represents the inclination of its orbit around the planet relative to the planet's orbit around the star and so there can be seasonal influences. One side is always facing towards the planet, leading to long days and nights relative to the parent star. Note: The T5 rules specify that satellite orbits 'em' and closer will be locked to their planet. If a randomly generated satellite rotation or user entered result is greater than the orbital period, it will be reduced to the orbital period and regarded as tidally locked.
Adjust orbit with first up and down arrows; adjust the decimal place with the second:
Orbital Period:Calculated Orbital period in Earth Years
Size UWP value explanation:What the size digit in the UWP means
Diameter (km):Equatorial Diameter of world in km
Jump Point (km):Distance required to safely jump. This distance includes clearing a planet's jump point for satellites, and the star.
Time to Jump Point at ...:Time to jump point at standard Gs from Maneuver Drives.
Density Type:Basic internal materials of world.
Density (Earth=1):Density where Earth = 1
Mass (Earth=1):Mass in Earth Masses - calculated
Gravity (G):Calculated gravity in Gs (Earth=1)
Rotational Period (Hours):Rotational Period in Earth Hours. If Tz or Lk, rotation period & orbital period are the same.
Atmosphere UWP digit explanation
Atmospheric PressureAtmospheric Pressure in Earth Atmospheres
Atmospheric CompositionDescription of Atmopsheric Composition
AlbedoAlbedo is the proportion of energy reflected into space (between 0 and 1)
Greenhouse EffectThe Greenhouse retention of heat by the atmosphere as a multipler (e.g. 1.05 = 5%)
Axial Tilt (degrees)Axial Tilt - used to calculate seasonal variations
Base World TemperatureThe average temperature for the world calculated using stellar luminosity, distance from the star, greenhouse effect and albedo.
Average Daytime TemperatureThe base temperature plus the typical temperature rise caused by the sun during the day. The average daily maximum temperature.
Average Nighttime TemperatureThe base temperature minus the typical temperature fall during the night. The average nightly minimum temperature.
Summer IncreaseThe maximum increase of temperature in summer when a hemisphere is tilted towards the parent star.
Winter DecreaseThe maximum decrease of temperature in winter when a hemisphere is tilted away from the parent star.
Upper Temperature LimitDaytime temperature plus summer increase.
Lower Temperature LimitNighttime temperature minus winter decrease.
Hydrographic PercentageMore precise percentage of planet covered in liquid.
Surface Liquid CompositionAre you SURE that's water!?
Native Life?The world has or does not have native life. Regardless, the world may have imported species.
Seismic StressSeismic Stress minus 4 is the daily chance on 4D for an earthquake, Mod +2 if on a fault line.
Population Digit from UWP
Intelligent Life StatusIndication of the (Native) Intelligent Life on this world.
ResourcesThe raw resources available to this world.
LaborA measure of the labor force available.
InfrastructureHow sophisticated the infrastructure is.
EfficiencyImpediments to or enablers of economic growth; negative efficiency means the world is a net importer.
HeterogeneityHigher is more culturally diverse
AcceptanceHigher means a greater acceptance of outsiders
StrangenessHigher means more weird
SymbolsLower means use of more concrete symbols; higher means more abstract symbols.
This way of looking at symbols taken from a post by Thomas Jones-Low found here. A general description of the culture.
