Space Engineers: How to Find Cobalt Ore?

One of the most elusive resources in the game, Cobalt Ore can be quite difficult to find if you’re just wandering around planets casually. Here’s a guide that can help.




As you’re playing Space Engineers, you’ll inevitably notice that some resources are harder than find than others. And Cobalt Ore can be particularly tricky. The Cobalt Ore is one of the most important ores to find in survival mode, as it’s needed to make crucial items like Gravity Generator Components, Hand Drills, and Thruster Components.

Although, your chances of finding one are mostly determined by RNG, there are a few ways to speed up the search process.

How to Find Cobalt Ore in Space Engineers

Without Ore detectors, you need to keep your eyes peeled for Dark Spots as you’re landing your ship on a planet, as these indicate where you can find Cobalt Ore.

To make the process easier, you can specifically choose locations where the darker spots are easier to identify, such as ice lakes or polar caps. That way, you’ll be able to easily scout out cobalt by simply walking around!

Building a Grid Rover

If you have some resources to spend, another good idea is to built a large grid ore detector on top of a rover and drive around, searching for cobalt ore.

The detector will identify what are is nearby, minimizing the time you’ll spend on drilling materials you have no use for. A large ore detector has a range of 150m, meaning you’ll be able to find even the ore hidden deep underground. Also, if you’ll use the antenna to broadcast the data, the ore will stay marked even once you’re out of the rover!

Keep in mind, though, that the resources in Space Engineers spawn randomly when you arrive on the planet. So, you might need a lot of patience before you’ll get your first batch of Cobalt. But don’t give up – sooner or later, you’re bound to find it!

Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide

Shameful display!

Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!

Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms

Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.

While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.

Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.

Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.

Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.

You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.

Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.

Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.

In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.

Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.

Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!
