The Barren Planet is a world desolate of anything living, which is one of many planet types and, one of 5 extreme planets in Galactic Civilizations III.

How to Identify?[edit | edit source]

Barren worlds can be identified by the third shaded circle icon GC3 Extreme Barren 32.png next to the planet and when hovering your mouse over the planet, it will indicate it's a barren world. If the planet is not able to be colonized it will give a message in the description that indicates "Requires Extreme Planet".

Description[edit | edit source]

Barren worlds is mostly a dry desert planet without any water, which makes it a very harsh world to attempt to survive on. Because of this, it a planet that does not easily sustain many life forms. Barren planets are one of five extreme planets which require additional technologies or racial abilities to be able to survive in this environment.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

One may use the Adaptable racial ability to gain an early advantage and the ability to colonize this planet type, especially in a galaxy crowded with races and limited expansion opportunities. Suggestion to colonize normal planets first and extreme planets second. When choosing which barren planets to colonize choose something on the border of your neighbors ZOC (zone of control [influence]) to attempt to persuade inhabitants in the area to your influence.

Which races able to immediately colonize?[edit | edit source]

Currently there are two races in Galactic Civilizations III that are able to colonize barren planets at the start of the game; The Yor Singularity Yor Singularity, and any Custom Race custom faction with the Adaptable race trait.
