How do I get platinum, titanium, diamond, etc. ores?
I mined a huge chunk out of the first planet and didn't find any. I reached lava on the second one. still nothing. Am I just unlucky or do I have to go to a specific planet? Is it biome/threat level related?

I found Platinum and diamonds in chests on planet lvl 7 and planet lvl 16. But they are RARE!

Yeah. I found an outpost guarded by droids. I dismantled the outpost with my pickaxe and got some titanium plates. Also there was some diamond ore in the chest. But that's not nearly enough.

TOO rare if you ask me, i wish they were mineable.
I didnt make a nice house on the first planet just to leave it because it ran out of materials. I know i can return anytime to it, but why have a house if you cant admire it?

they're probably minable in high diffiulty planet, like 20+.

I've been to lava level on several planets ~threat level 30 including arid, desert, and moon and have no platinum. Titanium is everywhere though.

Probably they are .. on higher level planets (ifor example 2nd tier, level 11-20)
(just a guess ... haven´t met the penguins yet)

Ok. I'll just go to a higher level planets I guess.

Theres a new thread of someone showing off the higher tier ores from a lvl 40 planet. Defnitely need to get to more dangerous worlds for those better matterials.

Did finde 5 diamond ore in a chest on first planet near/close so lava level (3 - 4 Blocks upp from lava level), 4 whas smelted in to 1 Diamond. As for the Platunum have found it on some Lv 2 and 3 Planets in 3 - 4 solar system away from starting system. The chest has 5 Platinum ore in it and 2 ore = 1 bar. But i still dont finde any good weapons or armor.

Diamonds and platinum on 31+ planets.

So far I have 17 diamonds and 12 platinum from about 15 planets, all in chests.

I am fairly positive at this point that platinum is bugged. Platinum is weaker than Titanium (Steel < Platinum < Titanium), after spending a few hours on a level 30 planet mining all the way down to the lava I found 1000 titanium ore and 0 platinum. In order to make titanium armor you need a full set of platinum armor, like 100 bars, which is pretty much impossible right now. I'll be lucky to ever finish my platinum pickaxe, I've gotten only 10 ore from chests so far.

Titanium is obtained by mining it and can located on the surface of a planet or underground in Gamma Sector.

Some ores you need to be on the right planet for - and deep!

Platinum can be mined deep in level 2 planets (Beta Sector). I assume it'll be more common, or further up in level 3 planets.
