Also Called

  • Environmental Shift
  • Planet Changing
  • Planet Forming
  • Terraformation


The users can change a planet, moon, or other celestial bodies into a new environment by terraforming (literally, "Earth-shaping"), ie. deliberately modifying its atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to the biosphere of Earth or other habitable worlds, in order to make it habitable to other species.




  • May take a very long time, possibly an entire lifetime.
  • May cause native species to die off because of inability to adapt to the change.
