Ore

Compacted plasteel in game

Compacted plasteel tiles have 8,000 health each, making it the slowest ore to mine and the toughest object in-game. They can be found in smaller veins, ranging from 2 to 8 tiles in size. Each mined block has a base yield of 40 plasteel, however this is modified by factors such as the Difficulty setting and the mining yield of the pawn.
