|— In-game description|
Component nodes can be mined with a Sledge Hammer or in bulk with a Harvester. Each Component field starts with 30 nodes spawned on the ground, and 167 more in reserve. Each node yields around 154 Components, meaning that each field contains about 30,000 Components. Once a field has been fully completed, it takes 4-6 hours for the field to replenish. You can check the status of a Component Field by walking up to the large central piece and interacting with it by pressing
E, or by hovering over the map icon ().
High Yield Nodes
Components have a rare chance to spawn as a High Yield Node in the Component Field. These nodes are identified by a bright light on top of them and provide a much larger amount of resources for the same amount of mining.
Component Mines are World Structures which produce Components when fuel is given. These structures are the only way to produce Components before Sledge Hammers are unlocked, as regular Hammers cannot mine Components. They produce 2 Components every 4 seconds when using Diesel as fuel, and 6 Components every 4 seconds when using Petrol.
