    $\begingroup$ Welcome to worldbuilding. I don't see how this is a worldbuilding problem, as explained in our help center. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @L.Dutch I think it might be. He's asking how you would create a world that has "outstanding ugliness". It's inspired by a game, but not about the game itself. Of course, aesthetic preferences vary from person to person and culture to culture, do I think it might deserve to be closed for being unclear rather than off-topic. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Ugly planet is a thing, just not the one you're looking for. Also it's a bug planet, $\endgroup$ Nov 22 at 6:16
  • $\begingroup$ I'd think it would be in line with what most living creatures would consider ugly, or would try to avoid. A warty landscape with fleshy mass plantlife the colour of gangrene and full of holes and oozing a sickly yellow fluid as if they were pustules and gash-like crevasses filled with these plants making the canyons and such look like seeping infected wounds. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ In any case, the notion of pulchritudinous-ness is also dependent from the point of view. From your seat, take a picture of a fly buzzing in your room and it's uninteresting. Take it at 1cm with a macroscopic camera and suddenly it's a marvel. Or a terror, if you dislike insects :). $\endgroup$
