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.
