Materials are the basic building blocks of the world. Some can be collected by mining with a pickaxe, others with an axe. Only the first 4 materials (sand, dirt, stone and grimstone) can be placed after collecting them. Some materials have been officially named but others remain speculative, although many can be guessed from the name of their associated .TGA files.
Gatherable materials are shown on the left side of the HUD. Some still have undisclosed names, so we gave them our best guess. They are:
Black + White mineral
A vein of black and white minerals.
Black + white minerals (Mined)
A partly excavated vein of black and white minerals.
Yellow + Blue Minerals
A vein of yellow and blue minerals.
Black + White + Red Minerals
A tunnel with a vein of minerals. The construction sphere is shown.
