Aluminium (Al) is a resource, and a member of the Neutral elements class.

Summary[edit | edit source]

A hugely useful, ductile, and versatile metal. A highly desired element in trading markets and cargo manifests throughout the known galaxy.

Can be combined with other elements to create valuable alloys if formula is available.

Sub-surface Aluminum ore as a U-shaped cavern

Aluminium can be mined from nodes, crystals, and monoliths on planets as well as asteroids.

  • node form appears metallic-white and is smaller and wider than a Heridium node with a rounded top (shaped like a half-disc)
  • crystal form is green in colour
  • monolith form are column-shaped with a square facing
  • sub-surface, spotted via two adjacent holes with light-blue metallic edges. The node is a U-shaped tube.

Before the Foundation update this metal could be found as large planetary rock structures, shiny and white in colour. After the update, the nodes are now sub-surface and the cores are hollow. They appear as small vertical caverns, and maintain their white/silvery appearance. Nodes can be located when flying above the surface, as long as you are flying at a low to medium height, and slowly.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

The following products can be crafted using aluminium as an ingredient:

Additional information[edit | edit source]

  • In rare cases, gigantic monoliths of aluminium can be found on planets with Sentinels under threatening behaviour. The monoliths have an above-ground height 1.5x greater than a typical Heridium column, a square face, and an endless depth. The core is aluminum but cannot be mined (it will remain reflective). Mining this monolith yields a tremendous amount of Aluminium. In one specific case, more than 3000 units of Aluminium were harvested.
  • When mining sub-surface aluminium, the nodes will bottom out, often after yielding 3000-5000 units of Aluminium..

Trivia[edit | edit source]

This element is also called Aluminum in the US English localisation.
