I am playing on a red planet and am looking to build a galactic trade hub, but it says it needs 400 wood, which I have no idea how to get on a red planet.
It is pretty easy. You need to higher your atmosphere to a certain level, once you reached it, you will get a notification and get new researchs. Also the texture of the ground will change and you should access to green bot / lumber bot and build single trees and later treefarms.
