The procedural generation of planetary environments in Bethesda’s newest open-world explorer, Starfield, leaves much to the imagination. There are complaints that planets look similar when explored, and some are so boring due to being barren.
While Bethesda’s Todd Howard could say that they intended many planets in Starfield to be boring, that wouldn’t stop modders from creating alternations to any of these celestial bodies’ surfaces and coming up with something new for the playing community.
One such creation is Grindterra - A Terraformed Vectera With New Handmade Biomes. This mod has turned the moon Vectera into an environment conducive to life and adorned it with unique biomes that you won’t find anywhere else in the Settled Systems or the galaxy.
According to the mod’s description page, the mod replaces the Rocky Desert, Frozen, and Crater Biomes with the Frozen Forest, Tropicalago, and The Grindlands biomes. The mod also creates new creatures and plants for the moon, new atmospheric conditions, and climates.
The mod is very friendly with other mods as well, the modder says, except for those that try to do the same thing it does.
Of course, this is not the first time somebody created a mod that alters the surface of any planet on Starfield. Another modder, probably unhappy with Planet Earth’s fate in Starfield’s story, decided to create a patch that turns Earth into a tropical planet that replaces the barren and devastated world in the base game.
Make sure to participate in Bethesda’s beta testing of its latest patch, which is expected to add native DLSS support to the game. The patch has reportedly boosted the performance of PCs with Nvidia GPUs by at least 100%.
