Bars are a crucial component for crafting most weapons, tools, and armor. They can be smelted from ore in a Stone Furnace. Some types of bars are occasionally found in chests, be they underground, dungeon, and sometimes above-ground. There are currently 13 different types of bars, and three different types of fuel rods.
Early game tiers
These items are all available at the start of the game in Alpha Sector
Coal isn't technically a metal bar, but the ore functions as an important crafting ingredient. Often the first ore obtained in the game. This ore is very common, especially on lower-tier planets.
Copper is the 1st tier of metal bars available to the player.
Iron is the 2nd tier of metal bars. It is very useful, even into mid-game, as it can be used to craft many things, including race exclusive armors.
Silver is the 3rd tier of metal bars. Its most important use is crafting the Distress Beacon item, which is used to summon Dreadwing the Penguin boss.
Gold is the 4th tier of metal bars.
Platinum is the 5th tier of metal bars.
Diamond is the 6th tier of metal bars (rather, a gemstone).
Steel is the 7th tier of metal bars. It isn't mined, you make it from 1 Iron Bar and 3 Oil via the Alloy Furnace

Titanium is the 8th tier of metal bars. It is found in Gamma Sector and above. You must craft Starmap Upgrade MK3 to unlock this sector.
