Planet Climate Stability

Recommended Posts

"Lets say you found a planet full of delicate life and expensive ores. Your organization mines some of the ore but then they realized that the delicate life depends on the ore, making the "delicate life" extremely toxic and stop producing hydrogen. There is a planet-wide evacuation and after 2 weeks, the planet re-stabilizes. Another organization starts mining there ignoring safety protocols, realized the planet is fusion based. After depleting the planet of its special ore, the delicate life dies out, produces toxins, and stops making hydrogen. This is when the planet is officially changed. The lack of hydrogen depletes the core of its fusion, making it slowly die out. The planet starts overheating due to the planet diameter decreasing due to inertia of the planet and the lack of volume in the core of the planet, the planet starts shrinking. After 3 days, the planet is completely engulfed in flames and volcanoes, and resumes a normal planet's core (using gravity, pressure, and heat to maintain core energy)."

 

That is one scenario of my idea.

 

Planet stability is determined by the following:

"Core Energy"

"Atmospheric Thickness"
"Foreign Elements"

"Mass Extinction"

"Planet's Health"

 

--CORE ENERGY--

The "core energy" is basically the output of the planets core. It is fueled by different things from fusion to gravity. Can be harnessed but the planets core energy will decrease. Making a hole to the core vents its core energy as well.

 

--Atmospheric Thickness--

How think is the atmosphere? If it rapidly increases/decreased, planet stability is greatly reduced.

 

--Foreign Elements--

If the planet rapidly gains 10% mass from foreign materials, planet stability is slightly reduced.

 

--Mass Extinction--

Self explanatory. Local wildlife devastated.

 

--Planet's Health--

Shooting a large projectile at a planet will reduce its stability by a lot.

 

--Planet Stability--

Planet stability ranges from 1-10000, 1 being "no more planet" and 10k "planet is best".

Each planet scans all of its voxels on time of creation and sees how many voxels it has. Planet HEALTH is determined by "Has it gained or lost mass?" Planet health ranges from 1-1000, and in 8 different tiers. Tier 1 and no health left means the planet implodes/explodes. Each tier is squared (math-wise) from the last one, meaning 1k health in tier 1 is 100 health in tier 2. Each tier next tiers increases: Mass, Gravity, Influence of Gravity.

 

-- TIER 1 --

Planet is considered a moon, cannot have a moon, and the moon may not support life. 0.10g

 

-- Tier 2 --

Planet is considered a Dwarf Planet. May have a moon of equal mass and only equal mass. 0.25g

 

-- Tier 3 --

Planet is consider planet, may have up to 3 moons. 0.70-1.10g

 

--Tier 4--

Planet is considered a large planet. May have up to 15 moons with a minimum of 3. 1.00-1.50g.

 

--Tier 5--

Planet has a 25% becoming a gas giant or a water world. 3g-15g.

 

--Tier 6--

Planet is roughly 1/3 the size of the sun. Another planet may orbit. 70g, anti gravity required at planet core.

 

--Tier 7--

Planet has a %30 chance of becoming a sun. HAS TO have 3 planets, with a maximum of 15. Gravity: 10k-100k

 

-- Tier 8 --

Planet forces super nova, wiping out all life. Required mass: 1 trillion squared. Forces a server wipe and only ships/bunkers made of special blocks will be saved. No gravity.

Since when can a planet have the mass to do fusion? Furthermore wouldn't producing hydrogen on the surface be a bad thing? Explosively bad? Even if the environment was crap, we wouldn't stop mining, or notice it because we can't even take our helmets off to breath good air. No planet would have the material to make a star. A Gas Giant might, but you would have to import insane amounts of hydrogen to start the fusion process. Making a new star in a system that has a star would create a binary system that would have to move/destroyed planets, something we don't really want to calculate. That would definitely be a long way off.

 

Normal planets don't do fusion to my knowledge.

Let's hold off on all of this until we actually have air in the game.

Interesting, but the destruction of planets thing just isn't going to happen. Probably a lot of the atmospheric effects won't happen either. Probably not the change in size of a planet, either. Would be nice to see these things in play, but this game isn't Geodynamics Simulator 2018. I would rather see the voxel-based single-shard emergent politics game they are working on.

 

Also after doing quick research, you definitely cannot have fusion in the core of a rocky planet similar to Earth. Even Jupiter is an order of magnitude too small for fusion. I'm also uncertain as to whether gas giants will even be in the game or not.

At the moment they are not.

No gas giants, nebula or black holes.

 

Maybe asteroids.

So you think a super nova will wipe out a galaxy?
