In Space Empires IV the Tectonic Bomb can be used to destroy a planet, in which case it becomes an asteroid field. The Matter Gravity Sphere can be used to create a planet out of an asteroid field, which receives a random atmosphere and planet type (Gas Giant, Rock or Ice).
Can I use these two components to destroy and then re-create planets to make them more productive? For example, turning a moon with no atmosphere into a small planet with a breathable atmosphere.
Assuming I remove all my population from the planet before hand, are there any other downsides? Will it impact the happiness levels of any of my planets?
