Each planet orbiting a star on the game map has a Planet Type, indicated on its tooltip.

Planet Types

Planet Type is a classification of a planet's biome and general environment. Different Planet Types often have different terrains in differing amounts, determining what resources the planet can provide and informing as to the kind of tiles potentially available when converted into a Core World.
