I'm almost certain that it never occurs in SC2, but beside that, it's physically very unlikely. The planet would have to be ''incredibly'' large to have a gas giant for a moon (gas giants themselves have to be quite big to keep from dissipating), and in such a case the planet would most likely siphon the gas from its moon until nothing of the moon remained. --[[User:Jacius|Jacius]] 05:24, 25 Oct 2004 (CEST)

Do we need to have separate pages for all those? With the amount of information available it would make more sense to put them all on one page. If we would still want separate pages, they should be renamed to their singular forms. -- SvdB 11:10, 14 Oct 2004 (CEST)

I'm working on moving all the info from the world type pages to this page. For the types which have no page, I will just put "No info has been entered in the Ultranomicon on this world type." --Jacius 19:50, 23 Oct 2004 (CEST)

Ok, done! I changed the plan a bit: I put a notice at the top that many types are missing information, and moved all the ones that don't have info to a list at the bottom (and unlinked them all). The ones that do have info have their own subsection, so you can link to them, like this: [[List of planet types#Water]] (for the Water world type) --Jacius 20:48, 23 Oct 2004 (CEST)
