Planet Chimera & Moon Zira

Planet Chimera
Chimera is a planet covered in lush forest, high snow capped peaks and beautiful sandy beaches that go on forever with many islands and continents surrounded by icy oceans and rivers and the high mountains at the poles covered in snow.

• Gravity: 1.0g
• Oxygen: %95
• Wind Speed: 88
• Atmosphere Density: %122
• Climate: Day: Warm / Night: Cold
• Lifeforms: wolves (if activated within your game)
• Ore below ground: Iron, Nickel, Cobalt, Silver, Gold, Silicon, Magnesium.
• Recommended planet Size: 120 km.
• Custom height map.
• Custom Rock, Snow and Ice voxel textures and some vanilla ones.
• Custom grass textures.
• Custom weather settings: Chimera Wind Storm, Chimera Fog Light, Chimera Rain Heavy, Chimera Snow Light, Chimera Storm Heavy.
• Ore can only be mined on land there are no ore nodes beneath the ice.

Moon Zira
Zira is a moon with high peaks found at the poles capped with ice and in places a smooth but yet rocky area that rounds the belt of the moon suitable for travel with a rover, it is a beautiful place but a harsh life awaits you.

• Gravity: 0.16g
• Oxygen: None
• Wind Speed: 0
• Lifeforms: None
• Atmosphere Density: 0
• Climate: Day: Freezing / Night: Freezing
• Ore below ground: Silicon, Cobalt, Silver, Magnesium, Gold, Platinum, Nickel
• Recommended planet Size: 33 km.
• Custom height map.
• Custom Rock, Soil and Ice voxel textures.

Iron ore can only be found around the central belt of the moon and is located in the large deep pits found on the surface, at the bottom of these large pits you will find the iron ore about 5m below the surface and it will not show up using the ore detector so you may need to dig around a bit.

Ice ore can only be found at the poles of the moon, there is no ice nodes beneath the ground.

Ore nodes can be found around the central belt of the moon but not in the large deep pits where the iron ore can be found, you will find that the closer you get to the poles of the moon there maybe less ore nodes around the ice areas of the moon but it is not to say it can't be found under some of the ice areas.

@Mike that's fine you can change the ores only if you want to just give credit and link my original planet.

Thanks :)

@Aryemis yes that's fine if you want to change the ores you can.

Heya we're building a server with some friends and we'd like to use this planet, but we need to customize it some for our custom ores.
Is it okay if we use this in our mod ?
Unlisted & credit given in description of course.

@YankelMyWankel No it was never designed to have uranium as i considered it to be much like the earth like planet as a starting planet, i will be making a planet that has uranium and will be set up as a much harder planet to start on.

@The_Irish_Fox i will be looking at a water mod version of this planet at a later date as right now i am still in the middle of making two new planets so i can't give a date on that just yet.

looks great except you don't have uranium on it anywhere?
The_Irish_Fox Jul 21, 2022 @ 3:39pm 
Will you be making a version of this with the water mod? I'm in love with this planet!
