The foundation of all buildings.
The metal foundation is needed to create metal structures. You cannot place any non-metal building part on a metal foundation. Additional foundations can be snapped to existing foundations provided that:
- there is space for the foundation;
- the new foundation is not completely underground/sub-terrain;
- the new foundation height is not taller than a reasonable height (approx. the height of your character).
The metal foundation can be looted off radiated animals, then researched with a research kit if you want to craft it. You can craft a metal foundation with 8 Low Quality Metal.
