Lava is a gatherable, glowing liquid found on Volcanic and Magma planets, underground core layers, and the bottom layer of most planets.
There is nothing the player may do to make lava swimmable. Even the Cooling EPP Upgrade will provide no relief.
Primary damage from lava persists until contact ceases, starting at 30 and doubles each tick (30, 60, 120, 240, etc), so that would mean the damage is (30 * 2x-1), where x is the number of ticks. Besides this, there is secondary damage, as the player will also be Burned, taking damage for a short time at (2.5% of max hp + 1) per tick.
Lava has several interactions with other liquids:
- If Lava comes into contact with Water, the lava converts to Magmarock.
- If Lava comes into contact with non-Water (such as Oil, Slime, Jelly, Swamp Water, Healing Water, Coconut Milk, Poison, or Liquid Erchius Fuel), the liquids will completely convert to Lava.
Lava may be collected with Matter Manipulator once the Level 1 Expansion Slot is upgraded. The easiest way to collect lava is by beaming down to one of the small islands of a Volcanic Planet and sipping the lava with the Matter Manipulator at the edge of the land.
Core Lava is found at the bottom layer of any given planet.
Core Lava yields nothing when harvested with any Matter Manipulator (regardless of upgrade), making it an unobtainable liquid.
Core Lava is the only instance where Survival Mode players need to worry about items dropped on death, as with Survival Mode, items lost on death to core lava are not retrievable, whereas they normally are retrievable in this game mode.
