This guide will tell you where to find Uranium in The Planet Crafter, where to dig for it with Ore Extractors, and how you can use it to power your base!

Uranium is one of the most useful resources in The Planet Crafter. Aside from its various uses for Crafting and Building, you can use it to make some of the best power generators in the game. Read on to learn where you find it and how to get it!

Where to Find Uranium in The Planet Crafter

These are the coordinates where you can find Uranium in The Planet Crafter:

  • 586:35:-669
  • 1782:22:1940

Uranium can also spawn from Asteroids falling from the sky.

You can also get Uranium from falling Asteroids once you've unlocked the Launch Platform and launched the appropriate rocket into space, but it's much easier to mine it by building an Ore Extractor in the right location. As always, you also have the chance to loot Uranium from Storage Crates and other containers; these chances increase as you further progress Terraforming and increase the quality of loot in containers.

Where to Place Ore Extractors for Uranium

Here are the coordinates where you can place an Ore Extractor to get endless Uranium:

  • 586:35:-669
  • 1782:22:1940

You can only get Uranium with an Ore Extractor T2 or higher. Uranium seems to be one of the rarer resources -- there are only a handful of spawn points compared to the other materials that you can mine with an Ore Extractor.

Nuclear Reactors provide much more power than Sonal Panels, but you'll need Uranium to make use of them.

What is Uranium Used for in The Planet Crafter?

Uranium is used in a handful of Crafting recipes, but its most important use is for making Uranium Rods. Uranium Rods, in turn, are used to make Nuclear Reactors -- and those will power all of your Buildings much better than anything else.

You should focus on getting Ore Extractors online in a Uranium-rich location as soon as you've unlocked the first Nuclear Generator -- its power output outclasses everything else you can build up to that point and the higher-tier Terraforming equipment is going to draw a lot of Power. Ore Extractors take a lot of Power, too, and you want to automate as much as possible as quickly as you can.

Can You Craft Uranium in The Planet Crafter?
