Resource Nodes are locations where Miners can be placed to automate Ore harvesting or by manually harvest. They can be located with the Resource Scanner (hold C), and they usually be multiple grouped together, which form a Resource Patch. Nodes come in 3 purities, which modify the speed of miners placed on them, as well as manual mining speed of engineer. Resource nodes are infinite, they cannot be depleted.
Accessing[edit | edit source]
Resource nodes will often have a chunk of ore on top of them, which must be cleared by hand before an automated miner can be placed. There are also often hostile creatures nearby to make accessing the node more difficult.
Some resource nodes, such as Caterium Ore, can be blocked by large round boulders with cracks on them. These boulders can be broken using a Nobelisk with the Nobelisk Detonator. These boulders block the placement of Automatic Miners, but will not block the placement of Portable Miners.
