The Ground Penetrating Radar is a radar device to scan areas for ores. It is used along with the Ore Scanner cartridge loaded into a Handheld Tablet to see the ores under the surface.


It is easier to use the Ground Penetrating Radar from your inventory instead of having it out in the world. Make sure you put a battery in it first.

Take the Radar in one hand and either click it with the mouse or press the R key. Next turn it on as you would the tablet or any other item. Then hit the activate button, again either by using the mouse or using the scroll wheel and pressing F. That will send out a pulse.

After this, you must take out a tablet with the Ore Scanner cartridge. You should be able to look around and see blue dots. These represents mineable resources. Additionally, you can see a red dot which represents the position the Radar was in when it last pulsed. If you can't see anything, use the scroll wheel to switch between different Radars; the wrong one was probably selected.

The Ore Scanner (Color) cartridge will feature different colored dots instead of blue ones. The color coding is as follows:

Minerals and Ores Colors
Mineral/Ore Color
Ore_(Iron), Ore_(Nickel) Red
Ice_(Water), Ore_(Lead), Ore_(Cobalt) Cyan
Ore_(Gold), Ore_(Silver), Ice_(Nitrice) Green
Ore_(Coal), Ore_(Silicon) Magenta
Ore_(Copper), Ice_(Oxite) Yellow
Ice_(Volatiles), Ore_(Uranium) White
