This article is considered accurate for the current version (Launch Update).

In Oxygen Not Included you have the ability to choose an asteroid type on which to found your colony. These are all variations on the same basic asteroid template intended to mix up early and midgame strategies. They all have different assortments of biomes, creatures, and randomized traits.

List of Habitable Asteroids[edit | edit source]

  • Terra – temperate asteroid.
  • Oceania – similar to Terra, but with more saltwater.
  • Rime – uniformly cold asteroid with all biomes and additional volcanoes.
  • Verdante – forest asteroid that lacks Frozen biome.
  • Arboria – colder variant of Verdante without Swamp biome.
  • Volcanea – variant of Terra with guaranteed magma vent, which makes it hotter.
  • The Badlands – features large swaths of generic rocks and lacks biomes with liquid water.
  • Aridio – uniformly hot variant of Verdante.
  • Oasisse – starting area is besieged by hot sand, and there is no cold biomes at all.
