Ore is a class of materials found naturally on planets. It can be extracted through mining and refined into bars using furnaces such as stone furnace, iron furnace, and atomic furnace. Bars are a main component of crafting weapons, armor, and furniture.
Ore is distributed in layers throughout planets, meaning smaller planets will have less ground to dig through to get to deeper ore.
Each ore will allow for a 'tier' of armor, weapons and furniture to be crafted that will resemble the ores appearance and share a stylistic theme.
Each ore furniture set will consist of a chair, table, switch/console, bed, light and door.
These ores are used in several crafting recipes.
These ores can be used to provide fuel for a player's ship.
Weapon and Racial Armor Ores/Alloys
These ores are the primary ingredient in tiered, racial weapons and armor. All of them, once refined into bars, can be combined with another metal to form a stronger material.
Gems are a type of ore with miscellaneous uses and are used to craft various decorative objects.
These are ores that don't fit into any other category, such as Core Fragments, which are used solely for upgrading the player's ship.
These ores currently exist in the game files but are not implemented, and it is unknown what their uses are planned to be.
