Lists of Materials by CategoryEdit

For some of these, the linked name Chalcanthite is what you actually see in the Scanner and the Crafting Guide. The name in parentheses is based on the programmer's internal name.







Block Types That Are Not "Materials"Edit

Non-Block Items That Seem Like MaterialsEdit

*These Materials are only obtainable through Alchemy.

Properties of Transparent MaterialsEdit

There are five types of transparent material: Ice (also known as Water), Blue Crystal, Sulphur Crystal, Boron Crystal, and Glass (also known as Hyperglass).

Mobs and other Entities cannot be seen through transparent materials:

  • Two astronauts, one of which is mostly hidden by hyperglass.
  • A room full of astronauts partly hidden by a hyperglass block
  • The same scene without the hyperglass block.
  • A Blue I hidden by hyperglass
  • A mini light is half hidden by boron crystal.
  • Several minilights on the "ceiling" of a hollowed-out space
  • The minilights are hidden by a hyperglass block, but their glow can still be seen

When one transparent material is in front of another, only the front one is visible. The back transparent material effectively becomes invisible. However, non-transparent ("opaque") material is always visible, no matter how much transparent material is in front.

This photo shows five columns of the five different transparent materials. In front of these columns are five horizontal "bars" of the same five materials. This shows all 20 combinations of one transparent material in front of another, plus all 5 cases of two layers of the same material.

As the photos show, the material in front is all you ever see. The back material effectively becomes invisible.

Because of this property, materials such as Glass and Boron Crystal can be used to make Ice appear completely transparent:

If there is a layer of empty space in between two layers of transparent material, then it sometimes does the same thing (back layer seems invisible) and sometimes does more what one would expect (both layers rendered, with color mixed together).
