Starting strategies

Your starting items, Iron Plates, a Burner Mining Drill and a Stone Furnace

You can use the Burner Mining Drill to mine nearby Iron, Copper and Coal


Exploring the map

Whilst the map the player is dropped into is randomly generated at world creation, eventually exploring the map will prove vitally important to securing further resources, e.g. Iron ore, Copper ore.

As of Version 0.11.1, there are only two methods to exploring the world. This is either through the use of a Radar, or simply by searching the area using your character, though Enemies may be a hazard for any explorers.
