How to Get Components in RimWorld

Rimworld is a huge early access game with lots of resources. Here's how to find one of those resources, components.

RimWorld is a colony survival game in which you control people colonizing new worlds. It's almost identical to Prison Architect, except you're building up a civilization and protecting them from the harsh elements of an alien world instead of building up a prison to hold people in. The game is currently in Early Access on Steam, and is still being updated with more content.

Resources are important in a game like RimWorld, and one of the most important resources you can acquire is components. Components are required to make and repair electrical devices and can be used when making weapons, armor, and ship parts. But how can you get them? This guide has the answer!

Where to Get Components in RimWorld

There are five different ways you can obtain components.

  1. Deconstructing old ships
