Cube Planets are very strange square planets that were added to the game in the Patch 1.02. These planets were designed just for humor, and can be colonized. They can be of any planet type, and wildlife will rarely cross the cube planet's border. Cube planets do not appear in systems that were visited or colonized before patching. They are more easily found in other parts of the galaxy once the patch has been acquired, and they are sometimes colonized by a sentient species when you find them. Although it is usually believed that you can't find Cube Planets on games you made before patching, several people claim to have found them on their earlier games.
- Cube planets can be made by players by using planet sculpting tools (mostly the Level Terrain series), although it is difficult and time-consuming.
- Cube Planets are easy to identify due to their map being a line of land and circles of water OR large round plateau continents and line/triangle oceans.
- Most cube planets have very thick hazardous atmospheres.
- Cube planets are usually Water Planets or Ice Planets. Finding a cube planet of another type is rare, yet it has happened.
- Cube planets can also be made using Galactic Adventures' Terraforming tools.
- Cube planets may be a reference to an old theory that the Earth was flat, and that going too far would make you 'fall off the side'.
- In spherical view, surface of a cube planet is composed of 6 round seas, 12 mountain ranges, and 8 peaks.
- Cube planets may some times be your Homeworld's moon.
- Cube planets can also be in your own home star system.
- Cube planets were included in patch 1.02.
