Compound is a crucial natural resource, serving as one of the primary building blocks in construction. It can be found on any planet, albeit with varying levels of rarity, or produced through the use of a centrifuge. Additionally, compound can be obtained by exchanging it for scrap metal. Clusters of light gray spheres emitting a soft blue glow represent the typical form in which compound is generated.
