Planet Creation Template


Step into the role of a celestial architect in the Canadian Expanse, where planets are mini-worlds awaiting your creative touch. It’s important to note that the populated planets in our universe are smaller than Earth, functioning more like individual cities than nations. With this template, you can give life to planets within star systems. Define their atmosphere, flora, fauna, terrain, and history. Share in the diversity of our cosmos and contribute to a rich and interconnected universe.
