The Planet Crafter Biomass Guide

In our The Planet Crafter Biomass Guide, we'll tell you what you need to know about this new Terraforming mechanic that signals the start of the mid-game.

How The Planet Crafter Biomass Works

The Planet Crafter Biomass is a measurement of how much life you have on your planet. At first, you'll have nothing more than a few stray blades of grass. As you advance in the game, however, you'll begin to add more and more complex life to your ecosystem.

 

Biomass isn't just a game mechanic, mind -- it also represents an opportunity to decorate your world beyond placing some fancy furniture. For example, you've probably ended up with a Locker Storage or two filled with seeds that you're not using. You can use Flower Spreaders to make actual flowers grow in small areas of the planet surface. As you progress further, you'll gain the ability to grow trees near water. Later versions of the game will add more complex life than some fancy greenery.

How to Unlock Biomass in The Planet Crafter

You can unlock Biomass by progressing Terraforming to the Liquid Water stage. Once you have, you'll unlock the ability to start generating Biomass and it will now be tracked on Screen - Information.

How to Increase Biomass

You can increase Biomass in The Planet Crafter by growing wild plants. That means you'll need to construct buildings like Flower Spreaders, Biodomes, and Tree Spreaders. This doesn't replace the other aspects of Terraforming, mind -- you'll have to keep increasing Oxygen, Heat, and Pressure for a while.

 
 

Growing Biomass is fairly time-consuming, owing in part to the need for plant matter. Many of the best items that can generate Biomass require that you have Farming set up first. It should be noted, Farming does not contribute to Biomass generation.

Best Way to Increase Biomass in The Planet Crafter

The best way to increase Biomass in The Planet Crafter is with the Tree Spreader T3 -- it increases Biomass by 680/s. If you haven't unlocked it yet, build the highest-tier Tree Spreader you can. And if that isn't available, your next best option is a Flower Spreader T2.
