I feel like for a colony it just has too many city lights. I mean harvest was colonized early on and the whole planet wasn't colonized with giant settlements.

Yeah Harvest only had a population of around 330,000 or something.

This is probably a fully upgraded colony.

True but Harvest was more a farming world so it was less built up. The Inner colonies were metropolises (Reach in the Halo:Reach reveal shows it quite well) so were more teaming with cities. Also this being an ice planet it makes more sense for heat signatures to be more prevalent due to the higher heating requirements for the colony.

I would think the colonies would be effectually smaller on a more hazardous planet where you need special accommodations to live there

I'm pretty sure the vanilla Sins justification for all the lights is that all the worlds are already heavily populated and you're just establishing control over them. That's why every planet is able to afford a defending militia fleet.

Amusingly, I saw a discussion on the Aurora forums about this exact terraforming effect a week or two ago.

Description

As the amount of solar energy absorbed by the planet's atmosphere decreases, the amount of frozen water increases. The more ice there is on the surface of a planet, the more solar energy is reflected back into space thus, further decreasing the energy trapped in the atmosphere. This cycle figuratively and literally snowballs until and planet's surface is saturated in permafrost.

Special thanks to NASA's Landsat program and USGS.
