Rewatching Man of Steel, and can't for the life of me figure out why a race of people with a world ship need to populate a habited planet? Especially when they were so few in the first place, why not live among humans for a while while kryptoforming the moon?

Or Mars, or Venus?

All I can figure is that their kryptoforming resources were limited, and would not have been able to successfully alter a world that wasn't already most of the way there.

Of course, Zod may have also been thinking long-term that humans could pose a threat.

Well, Zod and crew had to go to Earth to find Clark and get the Codex out of him. It could have been simple laziness that made their decision to kyrptoform Earth. It's also possible that it's easier to kryptoform a planet that was similar to Krypton than to kryptoform a planet that is incapable of supporting human or Kryptonian life. Or, more than likely, there would have been no conflict if the Kryptonians made their new home on another planet in the solar system.
