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.
