Cube Planets are a type of planet in Spore introduced to the game in the Patch 1.02. These planets were designed purely for comedic purposes and can be colonized. They can be of any planet type, and wildlife will rarely cross the cube planet's border. Cube planets do not appear in systems that were visited or colonized before patching. They are more easily found in other parts of the galaxy once the patch has been acquired, and they are sometimes colonized by a sentient species.
- Cube planets can be made by players by using planet sculpting tools (mostly the Level Terrain series), although it is difficult and time-consuming.
- Cube Planets are easy to identify due to their map being a line of land and circles of water OR large round plateau continents and line/triangle oceans.
- Most cube planets have very thick hazardous atmospheres.
- Cube planets are usually Water Planets or Ice Planets. Finding a cube planet of another type is rare, though not unheard of.
- Cube planets can also be made using Galactic Adventures' Terraforming tools.
- In spherical view, the surface of a cube planet is composed of 6 round seas, 12 mountain ranges, and 8 peaks.
- Cube planets may sometimes be Homeworld's moon.
- Cube planets can also be in the player's own home star system.
- Cube planets were included in patch 1.02.
- Cube Planets may be the starting planet of another creature, this may be a bad thing because it distorts parts of the landscape.
- If you want to colonize cube planet without changing its view, it's recommended to place colonies on corners.
- Strangely, most cube planets spotted are red.
- Although it is usually believed that some players can't find Cube Planets on games they made before patching, several people claim to have found them on their earlier games.
