This was submitted by Tublecain as a comment. It’s a good recap, so I made it into its own article. ~ Voidhawk
After a battle there will be debris floating around the defenders planet regardless of who won or lost the debris stays where the battle happened. For every 100K debris left behind there will be a 1% chance of a moon forming.
Things you should note:
- You cannot get higher than a 20% chance at a moon forming after a single battle.
- The percentage of previous battle does not get added on to newer battles, this means you can easily have had several hundred in combined % over several battles.
- If a moon forms it will be instantaneously formed after the battle.
- The size of you moon is somewhat relative to the % of the battle after which it was formed. So a moon gained on a 1% battle will be smaller the a moon gained on a 20% battle.
If a planet is destroyed and then recolonized there can still be a moon there.
As for why moon are soo good it is simply the fact that without them you canot build phalanxes or jumpgates. They are also good for protecting your fleet.
