The challenge, as the title says, is to find the hottest planet with life.

Rules:

1. Must use version 0.97.1
2. Must have life, obviously
3. It cannot be a named planet or reside in the Milky Way (See below for example)
4. Can be any type of planet, even a moon.

This planet is not part of the competition but an example:



Rocky planets:

Currently in the lead is Donatelo200 with a 445.48 K Desert world, that's 172 degrees Celsius!
The previous leader was johnson_lin with a 441.39 K Desert world, that's 168 degrees Celsius!

Gas planets:

Currently in the lead is Tangle10 with a 333.84 K Ice Giant, that's 67 degrees Celsius.





PC: Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz, 8GB RAM, GTX670 2GB, Win 7 64-bit

There'll be another time...

20K is the coldest any world can be in the current version. It used to be 3 K (the temperature of the cosmic background radiation), but it was changed for some reason, I think in 0.96.

Wow, then I guess this thread should be locked, but I changed it to hottest planet with life, hopefully there is no limit on that.

Haha, great idea. biggrin There is a limit on heat; planets don't get generated over 2000 K, but worlds with elongated orbits can get quite a bit hotter than that. And in any case, life isn't generated on worlds that hot.

I doubt Its water at that temp. Even the night side would be to hot for water to exist.

Not true. With an atmosphere that thin the night side would be quite cold.

At first when I found out this moon, it was 403.05K

But then I found out my time was off -- I was fiddling with orbits the other day, and didn't notice that my time was 2013.11 or so... after I reset the time and this planet-moon system moved to the correct position (as of now), the temperature dropped to 402K. But anyway, I didn't realize I was in Milky Way, so I guess even though this is a procedural generated moon, it doesn't count.

So I went on hunting again, this time:


A desert planet with barely any atmosphere, and it's organic multicellular terrestrial life... and it's 411.17K (as of now). I wonder what kind of life is that.... magical fire elemental maybe?

Found one with 411.34 K and a Greenhouse effect of 9.8033 which makes it 421.1433 K. That's 148 degrees Celsius!



It's in a quintuple star system!

No; the given temperature includes the greenhouse effect already.

General note: When you find a candidate hot planet with life, check the temperature through the whole orbit. Perihelion might be significantly different than aphelion. smile
