Dead Core Block

The superdense core of a dead planet. Nearly unbreakable.

Unobtainable Object

Dead Core is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.

Dead Core Block is a block that is found in the core of moons. It is incredibly dense and takes a long time to mine, and upon doing so, drops nothing. Its primary purpose seems to be to discourage the player from digging to the bottom of moons.


  • Dead Core Block's materialID is 666, which is appropriate as it is found at the bottom/"nether" side of moons.
  • Dead Core Block cannot be obtained by any means, including through admin commands, because it exists only as a material in the game files, with no corresponding material item, which is the resource that provides an item drop.
  • Dead Core Blocks have 2048 health. A fully upgraded matter manipulator will take approximately 2 minutes 50 seconds to mine, however, any drill better than a Copper Drill could destroy it significantly faster. This amount of health is also possessed by Brains found in the Ruin.
  • The image files to support Dead Core Blocks being painted are present in the game assets, which means it is possible to paint them.
