The Bio deck is the third deck and top level of the station. It is unlike the other two because its roof is glass and its floor is made of an organic material, "nanosoil", that can be terraformed.

The Karmarama work on this level as farmers as the bio deck can sustain the growing of Plants which can then be harvested for material crates. The Zedem Monks will create a Star Temple on this deck and administer to the Soul-weary once hired.

The bio deck is also a place of peace and recreation for Peeps. Pools of water can be created for peeps to swim in, hills for them to climb, and forests for them to walk though. Peeps will spend a certain period of time exploring an area before being effected by the climate of the area. Aside from a few exceptions with the Gem Slugs, peeps will always receive some bonus to fun by exploring.

The bio deck doesn't allow any buildings but Art and other furniture can be placed here from the Pattern buffer.

Terraforming[]

Bio deck terraforming tools (locked)

There are four adjustable setting on the bio deck: land height, water level, moisture and temperature.

These tools can be used to replicate the home environments of the various alien species. Each environment has two plant types associated with it, a tree and a shrub.
