Star metal won't farm

i’m on server 1822. start metal nodes appear on the mountain side but when i blow the shell off and try to farm the star metal i get nothing. i notice the star metal node is not smoldering could this be a glitch. its happen serveral times. after i blow the shell off when i start using my pickaxe the star metal breaks up but i don’t get anything in my inventory

Hi and welcome. That’s not a bug thats an intended change.

You need a T4 tool or higher. For example the hardened steel pick. But the archeronain pick doesn’t work.


Thank you so much for your response. The hardened steal pick worked. i was getting discouraged. thanks again

I’ll never understand why they made this change. People will be getting confused for years to come

It the pick is too low quality, you should get a hint popup saying so and the meteorite core should take no damage. It is a bit silly that you can destroy a meteor with a pick and not get any material.
