Resource Deposits are one of the various planetary Point of Interest locations.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Resource Deposits are one of the various planetary Point of Interest locations and are the player's primary source of metals. Resource deposits require a Terrain Manipulator or an Autonomous Mining Unit to mine.

Resource Deposits can be located using the Analysis Visor where they are marked by a diamond-symbol with four intersected sides. The Analysis Visor will indicate how far away the player is from a Resource Deposit and they can track the distance of one by by tagging a Resource Deposit.

They may also appear if using the Scanner in space if close to a planet while aboard their starship. Resource Deposits may rarely generate as much larger deposits embedded into geological buttes.

Resource Deposits can vary in size and shape, from being the most common spherical Resource Deposit embedded in the ground to other various sizes and shapes. As noted, the amount of mineral obtained from one can vary from barely a quarter of a full stack to 250 or more. Resource Deposits can also appear to be elevated bumps in the ground that stick out or small Resource Deposits that instead are streaks of mineral across the ground instead.
