The Hydrosphere represents (Hydrographics) or the liquid content of a world, usually water on a conventional life-supporting world.

Description (Specifications)

Worlds with vacuum atmosphere may have hydrographic percentages greater than 0 indicating that the world has ice caps present; the water will not be freestanding liquid but frozen solid mass on some or all of the surface.

A Desert World may have up to 5% free-standing water and still be considered a Desert World. Conversely, a Water World may have a 96% hydrosphere and still be considered a Water World.

On worlds with exotic, corrosive, or insidious atmospheres, the liquid may be items other than water, like ammonia, methane, ethanol, or other more exotic compounds.
