Gas giants are large worlds that have extremely dense atmospheres and very strong gravity. The atmosphere is so dense that it is liquefied and forms a incredibly deep ocean world. It is possible to dive into the ocean of liquefied gasses with a submarine or a submersible spacecraft.

Upperlayer Resources

Gas giants are normally rich in various atmospheric resources which can be harvested using harvester bay equipped spacecraft. This is normally also very advantageous as the high atmosphere density means greater harvest yields.

The resources in the atmosphere depends on the orbit zone of the gas giant. A gas giant in the inferno orbit zone might have ioplasma, and a gas giant in the fridge zone might have cryozine.

Atmospheric Resources

Harvester bay: Atmospheric Condenser Bay

Particle Resources

Harvester bay: Particle Collector Bay

Core Resources

The rocky core of a gas giant has the most of the same geological resources as regular worlds. But there are also a few unique resources that are not found anywhere else.

Colonization

A gas giant can be colonized just like any other world. Either with cities on aerial platforms among the clouds, or cities deep down on the rocky core.

Construction on a gas giant is an extra harsh environment, it requires the building blueprints to have life support gravity modules to counteract the strong gravity. This can be circumvented by using a biodome, since it protects all buildings inside it.

Life

A gas giant with an Exotic atmosphere might have strange underwater creatures in its ocean.
