Igneous rock is a Mineral found in abundance in the Caustic and Oil Biomes and in smaller quantities in the Frozen and Temperate Biomes. It can be used as a general construction material.

Usage[]

While Igneous Rock possesses no Decor bonus, its primary value lies in its high thermal volume and low conductivity. Together, this makes it extremely useful as an insulator in the early- to mid-game before Ceramic and Insulation is readily available. It is especially useful when used to build Insulated Tiles, Insulated Liquid Pipes and Insulated Gas Pipes.
Igneous Rock also possesses together with Obsidian the highest Radiation Absorption rate of Raw Minerals.

  • Rock Crusher can break Igneous Rock into Sand.
    100 kg Igneous Rock = 100 kg Sand.

Production[]

It forms from solidified Magma, which is a renewable resource on maps with volcanoes. Alternatively it can be sourced from melted Regolith, which is a renewable on every map, it also in addition creates enormous amount of heat to be utilized.
