It could be stripped of atmosphere and have active volcanoes due to tectonic activity involved with sudden increase in gravitic pressure from the star. Or after the atmosphere was stripped, it could have all the gas and dust that settled on the surface superheated until it became glass. It could turn into a proto-star, burning its own atmosphere and transferring to the main star. Space is crazy.hmmm. What would a gas giant that had most of its outer layers removed by a super nova be? Still set it up as a gas giant(with a note that it’s no longer giant). Or purchase it as a terestial world? Or a dwarf world? Hmm. I’ll prep orders tomorrow as there is a fair bit of narrative writing I want to do with building the iris system.
I might have "distant" pairs have separate maps, I think that is the most simple route.If a binary system stars are more than 1 light year apart (oort cloud distance) they might as well be two separate systems. Probably even much less.
The goldilocks zone might move but i doubt it'll get bigger.Olympus and Pelion should be extremely close to each other (like 3 days orbits around each other close), making it simple to put planets around them. And probably increasing the habitable zone size?
Good read, thanks for sharing. In game terms, initially the goldilocks zone was based on the relative temperature of each spectral class (the colder the star, the closer the range). This may be changed based on updated information, will keep you updated.New research has found that life among binary stars, as imagined in Star Wars, might be more feasible than originally thought.exoplanets.nasa.gov
Interesting read. So maybe not 3 day orbit, maybe like 20 day orbit.
Im not sure dead gas giants could become terrestrial planets as they are mostly just hydrogen balloons that aren’t big enough to be stars, they don’t have the solid crust of terrestrial planets, or much of the material to make one.
Just quoting this bit for referencePhase II
That works quite well. The belt would still be the source of the extracted resources, but the colony one/around Lens is where everyone gose to buy and sell it, along with housing the non-minning stuff, such as entertainment district, medical facilities, and shipyards to maintain/build the miners ships. Thus it's the only colony in the inner system, mechanics wise.@Terris, I applied the rare minerals resource to Lens instead of the Ciliary belt. This is because, in "game turns", only planetoids (terrestrial, dwarf, jovian) (mars, ceres, jupiter as examples) produce "resources".
Each planetoid has 1 "owner" who has resource extraction rights. With a colony it is easier to project your sphere of influence over the actual resources themselves. Whereas a belt is a system-spanning mass of billions of miles of spinning rocks, it would be extremely difficult to project power over the entire belt. Especially because "class I colonies" are literally 100-999 workers.
