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) or within chests.
