Non-organic life

Every planet I come across in SE that has life, has the organic type. Are there planets with other types, for example, machines that inhabit a planet where a technological singularity occurred, or plasma-beings, anything other than organic?

So far, there is only plant life, really. Though it does come in various colours. But in future versions, I believe there will be different forms of life, life subglacial life and unicellular life too. Whether it'll go as far as having civilisations, including robotworlds and non-physical life any time soon is doubtful, though.

Hum.. that is interesting. I didn't even knew that it was plant life and that it appeared. I haven't found any, maybe I don't have something enabled or just haven't searched long enough. What about animal life?
I hope someday it'll have civilizations, even if they're just alien caveman.

Well, I suppose there are probably animals too, they just aren't depicted in SE. Life on terras is just depicted as forests, like you can see on the planet in this screenshot:

Well, never mind, the things I said have just been obsoleted by the new version. There's now Exotic life as well as organic life, and life is no longer simply plants on the surface of terras but actually classed.

I just discovered life on a gas giant. It is organic multicellular. There is the term "floaters" next to that. Quite a cool find despite gas giants being rather bland looking.

But yeah, due to the recent changes it seems the hunt for life has become quite interesting in this game.

IMHO, life shouldn't be as abundant as it is right now. I have found star systems with 21 bodies with life.

Yeah, I think that gas giants should at least have less "floater" life. They're really common.

And are there any visible signs of exotic vegetation on titans?

I found a planet with terrestrial exotic life on a frozen Titan.

I can't remember where I found it though, but it had a really cool coloration.

I just found a temperate gas giant with unicellular floaters. First one I've seen of that.

I've been finding several cool/cold deserts with terrestrial life, especially if they have really thick atmospheres.

I also see a ton of worlds with subglacial life. I think these are too common. The conditions for subglacial life ought to take into account tidal forces and possibly other forms of geologic activity. I can imagine a geologically volcanic world with a thick layer of ice on top and temperatures approaching that of Pluto having life in a subglacial ocean, but I found an airless ice world about the size of Rhea orbiting the outer reaches of a gas giant's gravitational pull with life.

However, there is so much to see, I could spend years straight exploring and not see everything. In fact, it would take me a trillion years to see all of the planets in Space Engine.

I found another Exotic multicellular world.

RS 8409-1385-8-4072340-1 11

The system is over 8 billion years old.

It has an atmospheric pressure of 666.53 atm, one issue I have with this is shouldn't the surface be completely obscured? I can see oceans and stuff.

What does Exotic Life really mean? Just life far from what we know it as, or something else?

Whatever you want it to mean. Could be silicon life, could be some strange artificial life, or could be something else completely unknown to science but has properties that look like life. Exotic is merely a listing of an unknown type of life.

Then it seems some sort of sub-dimensional robots are plaguing the universe, draining all of the methane from frozen titan worlds to fuel their cold fusion warp drives to spy on other planets, creating a translucent sheet of blur that can interact with the dimension above or below them, creating the what we call a "ghost".
Just being creative. smile

Sheesh, I overuse commas
