Metal

From Worlds Adrift Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Metal is one of the main Resources used for Crafting and ship building. Each metal varies in density and strength, which will affect ship physics and appearance. According to the Modular Mechanics Blog, different metals will create parts with different attributes such as strength, color, and heat dissipation.

Metals can be found within metal scrap nodes (Situated on, or below Islands), within chests or in scrap piles scattered around some islands.

List of Metals[edit | edit source]

Metal List and Descriptions[edit | edit source]

NOTE: The following information is current as of Alpha 6.0 unless marked with "(Alpha 5.3)"

- Magnesium (Alpha 5.3)

Magnesium is by far the lightest metal available in the game. It is known to naturally spawn on islands.

- Aluminium

In game description:
"Extremely light without compromising too much on strength."
Aluminium comes second to magnesium in terms of weight.

- Titanium

In game description:
"Extraordinarily light for such a stress resistant metal but a bad conductor."
Titanium, although a lighter metal is known to be more efficient.

- Tin

In game description:
"Light but weak and soft with extremely poor heat resistance."
- Steel In game description:
"High performance metal for its weight without being exceptional."
- Iron In game description:
"Reasonably tough and heat resistant given its modest weight."
- Bronze In game description:
"Withstands a lot of stress for its medium weight but not resistant to heat."
Although an alloy, Bronze occurs naturally. This has been said to the fact the metal contained in nodes are actually pieces of scrap, there fore it is not uncommon for those scraps to contain alloy metals.

- Nickel

In game description:
"Versatile and medium weight metal with few weaknesses."
- Copper In game description:
"Great conductor but otherwise unexceptional metal of normal weight."
- Silver In game description:
"A jack of all trades but master of only conductivity. "
- Lead In game description:
"Heavy and a poor conductor but durable and fairly strong."
- Palladium (Alpha 5.3)

- Gold

In game description:
"Dense and heavy yet malleable with extremely high conductivity."
- Tungsten In game description:
"Unparalleled strength and heat resistance but very heavy."
- Platinum (Alpha 5.3)

(Note: Data for this metal is not confirmed)

Footnote about weight values[edit | edit source]

All the weight values from Alpha 5.3 here are based of the hard work of: Zerithax, DivineEvil and Xenowind. They have recorded their findings, and more, on a Google Spreadsheet

Metal Health[edit | edit source]

NOTE: The following information is current as of Alpha 6.0

These tests were done by shooting small panels made from each metal using quality 3 lead bullets.

As of now this is the best information I can provide for this, once I have more materials I will experiment with other panels and objects.

Metal Quality and Performance[edit | edit source]

The quality of a metal affects various properties of whatever the metal is used in. It can affect the durability of an object as well as its stats. At the moment, the best (and heaviest) material to craft ship parts is tungsten. This is valid for both wings and engines.

NOTE: The following tables for each of the listed components will be tested under the assumption that the entire component is made from the metal being tested. Also, the following information is current as of Alpha 6.0.
