Size Code Statement (Summary Synopsis Paragraph) Remarks
R World is a ring of small particles circling a world. The individual components of the ring are small particles, averaging less than 500mm in diameter. The individual particles, nor the ring in aggregate has, any appreciable gravity. Planetary Ring
D World is a single cluster of debris, 200 km or less in diameter. Debris Field / (Tiny World)
0 World is an Asterioid Belt or Planetoid Belt, consisting of 1,000 and 10,000 asteroids or planetoids each. Asteroid belt is the belt when it is the main world of a system. Planetoid belt is another belt or when another world is the main world. Planetoid Belt (Tiny World)
S World is a Small World or moon, between 200km and 800km in diameter. This is the smallest size of world that will collapse into a sphere under its own gravity. The world has very low gravity between 0.02G and 0.03G. The horizon will appear about 1km away. Very Small World
1 World is a Small World between 900km and 2,400km in diameter. The world has very low gravity between 0.05G and 0.09G. The horizon will appear about 2km away. Small World
2 World is a Small World between 2,400km and 4,000km in diameter. The world has low gravity between 0.1G and 0.17G. The horizon will appear about 2.5km away. Small World
3 World is a Small World between 4,000km and 5,600km in diameter. The world has low gravity between 0.24G and 0.34G. The horizon will appear about 3km away. Small World
4 World is a Meso World between 5,600km and 7,200km in diameter. The world has low gravity between 0.32G and 0.46G. The horizon will appear about 3.6km away. Meso World
5 World is a Meso World between 7,200km and 8,800km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.4G and 0.57G. The horizon will appear about 4km away. Meso World
6 World is a Meso World between 8,800km and 10,400km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.6G and 0.8G. The horizon will appear about 4.4km away. Meso World
7 World is a Meso World between 10,400km and 12,000km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.7G and 0.9G. The horizon will appear about 4.7km away. Meso World
8 World is a Meso World between 12,000km and 13,500km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.8G and 1.1G. The horizon will appear about 5.1km away. Vessels with 1G of thrust should check with local starport authorities before attempting to land using emergency power. Macro World
9 World is a Big World between 13,600km and 15,200km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 1G and 1.3G. The horizon will appear about 5.4km away. Vessels with only 1G of thrust should avoid landing on this world. Macro World
A (10) World is a Big World between 15,200km and 16,800km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 1.1G and 1.5G. The horizon will appear about 5.7km away. Vessels with only 1G of thrust should avoid landing on this world. Big World
B (11) World is a Big World between 16,800km and 18,400km in diameter. The world has a high gravity between 1.5G and 1.9G. The horizon will appear about 6km away. Vessels with 1G of thrust should not land on this world. Vessels with 2G of thrust should check with local starport authorities before attempting to land using emergency power. Big World
C (12) World is a Big World between 18,400km and 20,000km diameter. The world has a high gravity between 1.9 and 2.0G. The horizon will appear about 6.3km away. Vessels with 1G of thrust should not land on this world. Vessels with 2G of thrust should check with local starport authorities before attempting to land using emergency power. Big World
SGG World is 40,000-120,000 km in diameter.
  • Macrogravity: 2.01+ G.
  • This is a small Gas Giant. Ships, especially those with low thrust, usually orbit it (to skim fuel, hide, or whatever other job they have.)
    • Vessels with only 1G of thrust should not skim fuel from this planet
  • Standard surveys suggest there is nothing to land on.
Gas Giant
LGG World is at least 120,000 km in diameter.
  • Macrogravity: 2.01+ G.
  • This is a large Gas Giant. Ships, especially those with low thrust, usually orbit it (to skim fuel, hide, or whatever other job they have.)
    • Vessels with only 1G of thrust must not skim fuel from this planet
  • Standard surveys suggest there is nothing to land on.
