An archailect based upon a computational substrate comparable in mass and size to a small moon or rocky core of a planet, typically in the 1X1021 kilogram range. The computronium basis usually corresponds to a highly ordered metastable material structure, with diamondoid or feroid being the most common. Such complexity is often considered to be the bare minimum housing for an archailect at the full S3 rating.
