The moment that Neil Armstrong first stepped foot onto the surface of the Moon, our eventual colonization became inevitable. Decades would pass without us ever revisiting after those first few missions, but humanity has finally returned.

The Moon is much smaller than a planet, so you'll need to manage the space for your colonies wisely. But with luck, you'll turn humanity's first step into our next home.

About[edit | edit source]

The Moon is the only natural satellite of Earth and one of the playable worlds in TerraGenesis.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The terraforming process is fairly easy. Simply increase all four stats. You will need several Grass Farms, Hab Domes, and for the early part, Thermal Dust and Oxygen Plant. (You can simply get oxygen from Cyanovats, Pressure from spaceports, and biomass from Coral reefs, though)

The hard part comes in late game when you realize you can't place any more cities, and still need to increase your population (if you chose UNSA) or revenue (if you chose Horizon Corporation). Or maybe you don't have any cities within 10° of the equator, and you can't build the Sky Farm satellite because of that.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Moon is the only satellite of a planet to be part of the first level pack, the free to play Terrestrial Planets. Earth is occasionally visible when playing on the Moon; this Earth's appearance is not default but is instead the most recent save of Earth you have played.
  • The Moon is also available as a Natural Satellite when playing on Earth, with limited options.
  • On 20 July 2019, 25 free Genesis Points were given to players who played on that day to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 manned Moon landing. This event was repeated on July 20 2020.
  • The moon has no atmosphere, meaning there are no greenhouse gasses to trap heat. As such, the temperature on the bright side of the moon can reach 393K (120°C) and can drop to as low as 100K (-173°C) on the dark side.
  • The Moon is almost as old as Earth.
  • The prevailing hypothesis is that the Earth–Moon system formed after an impact of a Mars-sized body (named Theia) with the proto-Earth (giant impact). The impact blasted material into Earth's orbit and then the material formed the Moon.
  • When the Moon was just formed it was much closer to Earth than now and even had atmosphere - with a pressure of two atmospheres of Mars. The moon is escaping Earth very slowly, but it will never escape Earth fully. In 12 Billion years it Moon's orbit will be stabilized.
  • The Moon diffucluty in older versions was easy but then changed to medium
