    I started a new world on the infinite setting with normal density. I found every mineral in abundance when charting ~30 asteroids except Nickel. Is it always this hard to find? This limits me in so many ways -.-

    Every couple weeks or so a topic like this is started with some element or another.

    Nickel is there. Just look harder.

    Good to know :) I will try to find it or maybe create a new world with higher asteroid density.

    If you're using a small ship ore detector, it's hard to find. I suspect that's how you're searching right?

    Doing a proper survey of an asteroid requires a bit of work. Sometimes an asteroid has all its good covered in stone. My current supply of gold ore right now is a small asteroid that I hand drilled my way in past the stone.

    I recommend that you take some time to look at an asteroid from every angle. My first find of Uranium was because I spent some time to orbit an asteroid, not just take a look around inside it. If possible, get an are detector and travel close to the surface. The large ship ore detector is best as it has 5 times the range of a hand drill. The small ship ore detector is 2 times a hand drill.

    Also, there is some stuff that I'm short on. Right now it is platinum. I don't know another source than the one I'm using right now, and it is a small asteroid, so there wasn't much to begin with. I plan to race my way to a large ship ore detector that can be used to search for more.
