Summary

Space is vast and nearly infinite, with celestial bodies and asteroids full of materials to mine.

Scale

The currently charted galaxy contains:

  • A gas giant, 11,000 km in diameter
  • An asteroid belt 2,200 km wide (edge to edge) and 200 km thick (from top to bottom)
  • The asteroid belt density will increase at the center (200/km3 to 2000/km3 approximation)

Asteroids

Asteroids come in various sizes, containing an exterior shell and an interior core that are both made up of usable materials. Asteroids can be broken apart and mined on-site, or hauled entirely to a station for refinement.



These are the current asteroid sizes found in the galaxy:

Safe Zones

Major stations exist within safe zones controlled by large factions in order for peace to be maintained between the galaxy's inhabitants.
Safe zones are restricted to these major stations, though eventually safe zones can be established elsewhere in the galaxy as well.
