Discovered in 1846 but not named for decades later, Triton draws its name from the son of Poseidon (Neptune to the Romans), the god of sea in Greek mythology.
Consisting mainly of water ice and frozen nitrogen with a rocky core, Triton accounts for 99.5% of the mass of all of Neptune’s 14 moons. It is also one of the few moons in the Solar System known to be geologically active, meaning its surface is relatively young, and a complex geological history revealed in intricate cryovolcanic and tectonic terrains.
About[edit | edit source]
Triton is the only world in the game’s Moons of Neptune bundle. Triton is also the largest moon of Neptune. All of Neptune's other moons are much much smaller (Nereid being 170 km in radius, and Proteus, 211 km in radius).
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Establishing two or more cities and waiting for the trading route event to pop up is a good way to earn a lot of Space credits quickly. Be sure to have more than one hab(itation) in each city, since having an event wipe out an entire city takes away all cultural revenue.
Or, if you don't want to wait so long, you can slowly add heat and pressure by Borehole, you would also require a lot of ice launchers, so you can increase your temperature, pressure and water and prevent flooding. Since Triton has only 2 Pa pressure, it has no oxygen, so do not worry for Triton for just removing atmosphere and increasing it again.
