Typically (to the best of my knowledge), terraforming a planet in Master of Orion improves the climate and makes it a better place for farming, hence improved food production. Since the Cryslon's don't require food (eating the planet's mantle instead) I am wondering if it would just be a waste of resources to terraform planets when I am playing as the Cryslon?

Are there any other benefits to terraforming that I am not realizing?

  • In the original Master of Orion series, terraforming would also make the planet bigger. (i.e., a larger fraction of the planet is useful.) Even Cryslons found it useful to terraform. – PotatoEngineer Mar 27 '19 at 20:14
