Rock types

(Redirected from Hard rock)

This article is an unfinished work in progress or contains transferred information that needs to be rewritten or reformatted to fit our standards. Please excuse the mess and do not mark for deletion.

Various different rock types are used as walls in levels in both the Windows version and PlayStation version of LEGO Rock Raiders. For the most part, they are defined in the Terrain map. These rock types form walls that make up most of each level. Most rock types can be drilled by Rock Raiders, though some require vehicles, Dynamite, or mining lasers to destroy, and some can't be destroyed conventionally. Unlike ground types, walls cannot be traversed under most circumstances.

Dirt

Dirt

Dirt is the weakest rock type. Rock Raiders can drill it in just four seconds, and vehicles can plow through it almost instantly. On the radar screen, dirt appears as light purple when exposed, and light green when hidden.

Dirt is designated in the Terrain map with a hexadecimal value of 04 00 or 05 00 in the Windows version, and with a value of 02 00 in the PlayStation version.

In the NTSC-U/C PlayStation version of LEGO Rock Raiders, this wall type was renamed loose rock by the game's instruction manual.

Loose rock

Loose rock

Loose rock is an intermediate rock type. Because it is denser than Dirt, it takes eight seconds for Rock Raiders to drill, but vehicles can still mine it quickly. On the radar screen, loose rock appears as purple when exposed, and green when hidden.

Loose Rock is designated in the Terrain map with a hexadecimal value of 03 00 in both the Windows version and the PlayStation version.

In the NTSC-U/C PlayStation version of LEGO Rock Raiders, this wall type was renamed medium rock by the game's instruction manual.

Hard rock

Hard rock

Hard Rock is the toughest rock type that can be mined. Rock Raiders cannot drill it, and even the Small Digger and Granite Grinder take a very long time to mine it. Only dynamite, the Chrome Crusher's drill, and the most powerful mining lasers can destroy hard rock in a reasonable time. On the radar screen, Hard Rock appears as dark purple when exposed, and dark green when hidden.

Hard rock is designated in the Terrain map with a hexadecimal value of 02 00 in the Windows version, and with a value of 04 00 in the PlayStation version.

Solid rock

Solid rock

Solid rock is an impenetrable rock type used as the boundaries of a level. It cannot be mined by anything. On the radar screen, solid rock appears as very dark purple when exposed, and very dark green when hidden.

Solid rock is designated in the Terrain map with a hexadecimal value of 01 00 in the Windows version, and with a value of 05 00 in the PlayStation version.

Soil

Soil

Soil is an unused rock type. Its drill times, tool tip name, and textures still exist within the game data, but it cannot be placed in a map without swapping it around with a used wall type by hex-editing the executable file. It was presumably meant to be much weaker than dirt, and unused sound files indicate it may have been originally called "Soft Soil" and Dirt "Hard Soil".

Soil was likely meant to be designated with a hexadecimal value of 05 00 in the Windows version. Unfortunately, its ability to be designated seems to have been disabled for some reason, meaning it can't be used at all.

Other language releases of LEGO Rock Raiders do not translate soil's name from English, instead copying the name given to dirt.

Seams

Seams are rare, special wall types that yield minerals while being drilled. Both types of seams that can be mined use the same configuration properties. It generally takes much longer for seams to be drilled than dirt and loose Rock (and even hard rock in the Chrome Crusher's case), as the value for the drill time is actually repeated four times, once per each material yielded. It takes a Rock Raider forty seconds to drill seams, a Small Digger thirty-two seconds (sixteen upgraded), a Granite Grinder sixteen seconds (eight upgraded), and a Chrome Crusher four seconds (two upgraded). Using dynamite on a seam releases one material, but then that wall cannot be dynamited again.

Energy crystal seam

Energy crystal seam

Energy crystal seams are a rock type that yield a total of four energy crystals while being drilled. On the radar screen, energy crystal seams appear as light yellow-green whether exposed or hidden.

Energy crystal seams are designated in the Terrain map with a hexadecimal value of 0A 00 in the Windows version; the rock type is not used in the PlayStation version

Ore seam

Ore Seam

Ore Seams are a rock type that yield a total of four pieces of Ore while being drilled. On the radar screen, Ore Seams appear as brown whether exposed or hidden.

Ore Seams are designated in the Terrain map with a hexadecimal value of 08 00 in the Windows version; the rock type is not used in the PlayStation version

Recharge seam

Recharge Seam

Recharge Seams are a rare, special rock type containing a huge sparkling Energy Crystal-esque stone. If one is available, Rock Raiders will bring drained Energy Crystals to a Recharge Seam, and hold them up next to the sparkling stone, which will fully recharge the Energy Crystals so that they can be brought back to the Power Station for use. Like Solid Rock, Recharge Seams can't be drilled or reinforced, which can be problematic if it causes landslides or if Monsters emerge from it. If a Recharge Seam is collapsed, the sparkling effect will remain floating in the air, and units being controlled in eye view or shoulder view will not be able to pass through where the wall was. On the radar screen, Recharge Seams appear as yellow whether exposed or hidden.

Recharge Seams are designated in the Terrain map with a hexadecimal value of 0B 00 in the Windows version; the rock type is not used in the PlayStation version
