NAME: Unique names can be given but also can be changed at the owner's will. However every asteroid has an ID and a NAME given to it prior to being renamed. The ID never changes.
SPECTRAL TYPE: The type of asteroid it is. There are 11 different types.
YIELD BONUSES: The bonuses applied (if any) when an asteroid is scanned.
RESOURCE GROUPS: The unique types of resource categories that can be found on that particular asteroid type. Each of the 11 spectral types has a resource group.
LOTS: This is the number of buildable spaces on an asteroid. Each asteroid's surface area (denominated in km2) is also the same amount of lots an asteroid has. Ex. 100km2 = 100 lots of buildable space.
RARITY: This notes the sum of your bonuses into a single group. However, rarity does not always align with how powerful the asteroid is, it simply notes the chances that asteroid had to uncover those bonuses.
ORBITAL MECHANICS: Asteroids in Adalia orbit with realistic orbital mechanics, it's important to understand how orbital elements affect the position of your asteroid(s).
SIZE: There are four size categories, but within each category of size there is a gradation of sizes within that category. So when looking at Opensea, it is better to look at the “AREA” than the “SIZE” to see how big it actually is. A rough estimate for the number of players that can play on an asteroid is 13km2 per player on the low end and 25km2 on average for a more supportive industry. The smallest asteroids are 13km2 and will be great for casual play, but scaling up is ideal for serious gamers.
there are six grades of rarity, each with a different approximate chance of rolling said bonuses while scanning asteroids.
There are 6 categories of bonuses. Each of the 11 spectral types has the ability to attain some of the 6.
Each type of asteroid has between 2 and 6 bonuses it can attain. These bonuses largely make up the asteroid “Rarity,” along with its size as a factor. Equating to, about 55% of Adalia will be composed of “Common” asteroids that have no bonuses and 45% that have bonuses.
