Welcome! If you just got to this page "somehow", you might be treated as a brand new, inexperient and/or interested user of this Wiki and (maybe possible/future) player of Idle Planets. A great place to start the play AND to get a good, enough experience 'bout it. So please enjoy and learn well! Also, it might be very good to add and edit pages, to correct, share and teach about a good knowledge, comprehension and skills about the game (that is a simulator). I liked it so much I decided to create this wiki! I seen in comments there were many people complaining "oh, I can't understand", or ever "what this does?", and "imbecile game" and so... But contributing to this wiki might refresh they... clear the complaints, and ever interest they! Maybe this can contribute even to the game's MAKER... author... So, I'd very interested you do contribute or at least read some (many) of the pages here! Make a good use. No spam!
Once you decided you want to start playing, click "New Planet". If you already have done AND saved a planet (or at least with autosave on), just click "Load" to continue working in your planet(s).
- Small Planets will grow and evolute faster, but might be you impressed it doesn't have a enormous bulk of space, and much places to do "things". But ya might take very less time to make it nice. - Medium Planets grows and evolutes a little slower than the smaller ones. But you can make things in very many places, still a moderate (that is, pretty) quantity of time to make it very good. And supports more "biomes" by the many places it holds. Just large structures are a good way to use that much space. - Large Planets or Big Planets are perfect for huge biomes, and does VERY MUCH space, so many tiles it is usually perfect for a pretty large cluster of Villages, Forest, Grass, Rainy Forest etc. But also it evolution is VERY VERY slow, but might give a good time to make complicated structures, biomes, their clusters etc. and also is very good to accumulate points, later used for upgrades, unlocking tools etc. It might need a fast and nice computer to execute smoothly.
Chosen the future Sacred Planet, or Life Planet, or Global Life Sanctuary, start clicking it A LOT with the Humidity tool selected. To the right, there is the upgrades; it also shows how many Planet Points you have in treasury to spend in upgrades and in unlocking tools. Once you have a good quantity of points, try to spend it first in Mouse Points -- it makes you earn more Planet Points (PP) per click. More PP might be enough for other upgrades, like Forests, Mouse Strenght etc. -- mouse over a upgrade to see its function(s). In the bottom are located the Tools, which make certain attributes like Humidity, Fertility, Flora etc. to be increased in tiles that are clicked with the selected tools. You starts with only Humidity available, but as your PP accumulates you can unlock more tools - up to Civility, which needs 500,000 PP to afford. Also in the bottom right you can see the toggle for autosave and manual save. It is very detailed, so it is hugely recommended you increase the Flash data to be stored in computer so you can save good and complicated planets, which might be very heavy in terms of disk memory. To do this right click the game canvas, then click "Settings" and increase the slider Allowed Memory to - preferentially - unlimited. In the top left you might see two interrogative points ( ?? ). Hover the mouse in that to get some basic instructions. Water and grass are essential to build up your planet(s)! In the very top there is an black line where is FPS in the left and in the right a "link" that may set the quality.
Many instructions are detailed in the interrogative points (the Help info), and here you might start continuing the build of your planet. You may add a good quantity of Humidity -- and make upgrades there. Accumulate some PP and make your first upgrade -- that is, Mouse Points. Then accumulate more PP and make more upgrades - always hovering the mouse in to know their functions and decide well - to get even better. Very recommended the Mouse Points again to accumulate more PP and faster(!). Once you think you're well in upgrades, accumulate PP so you can unlock your first extra tool; the Fertility tool.. To use the tools, click one (small) tile in the planet selecting one of they (tools!). Good Humidity in low height spots may create oceans and water regions -- know the info of every tile hovering the mouse in they. Attributes like the Biome, humidity, fertility, air quality, flora, fauna etc. levels can be displayed. (Almost) Every of them have a function to change environment. The tools just modify them. Once you get Fertility, "fertilize" many spots. The more you click in the same tile, the more you can increase (selected) attributes. Then buy good upgrades (and more!) and get one more tool when you think it'd be a good moment -- now "buy" the tool of Flora. Mix humidity, good temperature (tile info), nice height (tile info!!) and fertility to make your very first fields greeny in grass. Humidity, low level and good temperature occasion oceans and water fields, and tiles etc. and humidity, fertility and even more Flora might increase grass density to Forest or ever - difficultly - Rain Forests! Once afforded the Population tool you might click it many times in the same tile - many people makes many villages! - and start civilization. The ratio and growth, and - technologic - advance may be occasioned by Civility tool -- but warning: if you have other upgrade or "thing" more "important" than it, try avoid buying Civility too soon and it costs entire and mere 500.000 PP! Then see other wiki pages, and the topic, and try the Help info in top left in the game to get info. Later more and more pages will occasion good instructions and info/knowledge, and soon (VERY soon!) this Wiki will get many new pages and contributors and lot of information will be available to "learn".
