Tropical and Humid Planets Temperature Fix

[Trop-i-kuh l for 1–4, 6; Troh-pi-kuh l for 5]
1. Pertaining to, characteristic of, occurring in, or inhabiting the tropics, especially the humid tropics.

NOTE: This mod is indeed compatible with the Atlas Rises update 1.3!

About this mod:

I love this game, especially with the Atlas Rises update, but I think that finding “Tropical” and “Lush” planets that have a temperature between -30C and +15C is ridiculous, so I made this simple fix to make these and other humid / wet types of planets have a nice steamy temperature somewhere between +25C and +40C (you know…like…tropical?). There are 5 different categories per weather type so I adjusted them according to the differences in the default values, meaning some will be cooler or hotter than others, but always within the range of tropical climate averages.

The mod also makes some adjustments to rainy weather planets as well to keep them above 0C (freezing point) as to avoid seeing planets with liquid “water” falling from the sky with temperatures below freezing.

I know water can exist in different states according to atmospheric pressures, and do have a decent grasp on how water but, I am not an expert, nor do I claim to be and I am not here to argue about physics. So, if you are like me and are annoyed by tropical, lush, rainy or other humid-type worlds being as cold as the Arctic, then please download and test my mod.

This is my first mod, so if you find any problems or suggestions, please do not hesitate to post them in the comments.
