New Player Question: Terraforming/Planet Improvements
I'm going to do my damndest to not make this TL;DR.
What I understand about Planets/Terraforming:
1: There are different Tiers (classes) of planets, ranging from 1-5. Five essentially being the suck-♥♥♥ planets, and class one being the God Tier planets.
2: That through sciences and upgrades, you can take ♥♥♥♥ty planets, and make them less ♥♥♥♥ty (adding air, water, flora, fauna, ect). Thereby changing how you can edit/exploit/improve the planet and what it can give you.
3: That planet sizes cannot be changed whatsoever, only types.
4: That each planet type gets certain bonuses and attributes that aim towards specific FIDS counts. (Not what I'm concerned about however).
What I'm inquiring about:
Let's say I have a Lava planet. I want to take my time, craft it, and take it from a fiery hellhole, all the way to a Terran planet. Now I've scoured the Amplitude, Steam, and other assortment of forums trying to find an answer, and cannot find a damn solid answer whatsoever.
Is there any straightforward way of terraforming planets in a simple method? For example:
Lava<Barren<Arid<Tundra<w/e, all the way to Terran? I know that you can terraform classes of planets back and forth to 'meet' whatever need you might have, but that's not the case. Lets say for ♥♥♥♥'s & giggles, that I want solar systems with nothing but Terran planets that I've crafted from essentially ♥♥♥♥ planets. Lets say that I don't have any specific need for specialty planets. Can anyone help, without providing that damn chart from the Wiki, or to put it bluntly, just provide an answer that I can follow?
I've honestly wracked my brain trying to get a grip of this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
