This article is incomplete and lacks major information points. Please improve it by adding relevant information.

A block is a square resource. Planets consist of various types of blocks. The Matter Manipulator is the basic tool which lets the Player destroy blocks, but additional appropriate tools will work as well. Currently it is unknown how many types of blocks will exist in Starbound, but unofficial estimates are around 100. Some basic blocks on some planets are: sand, dirt, stone and wood (itself declined into normal wood, darkwood, cactus wood...).

Natural Blocks

Natural blocks are any type of block that can be mined from a planet. Natural blocks include normal planet materials such as rock and dirt, biome blocks like snow or tar, and resources such as wood and ore.
