So a few days ago, I was over at my friend's house for his birthday celebration (his b-day was a day before release), and I was showing him Astroneer (as I had no-one to play with). So I was telling him about the planets, and he points out that all these planets were derived from Latin words, which closely match the previous names for the planets. That's what I call an attention to detail! Sylva Previously 'Terran'. Derived from 'Silva", meaning 'Forest'. Calidor Previously 'Arid'. Derived from "Calidi", meaning 'Hot' Atrox Previously 'Radiated'. Derived from 'Atrox', meaning anything along the lines of 'terrible, no good, very bad'. Glacio Previously 'Tundra'. Derived from 'Glacies', meaning 'Ice'. Novus The completely new world. Derived from 'Novus', meaning 'New'. The word 'nova' is also derived from 'Novus' Desolo Previously 'Barren'. Not sure of its origin, but pretty obvious derivative (desolate) Vesania Previously 'Exotic'. No idea where the name came from He ended up buying the game. (Do I get a refer-a-friend bonus or something XD)
