Steel is the primary resource for mid- to late-game construction, and is therefore vital. Steel can be found in steel bearing rock on the terrain and must be mined by your colonists. It can also be purchased from available ships at the Comms Console, from another colony or by smelting steel slag dropped from supply ships and broken machines. It is also dropped by some pawns, most notably the mechanoids. Raiders also have a chance to drop steel, among other things. Steel is one of the most valuable resources and is used in almost all forms of structures including Walls, Defensive Structures, Production Tables and more.


Ore

Compacted steel in game Steel ore is called Compacted Steel and it comes in veins of 20 up to a possible 40. Every block of ore drops 35 steel when mined.
