Anyone ever get stuck on a world with no metal? I have taken three minor cities and boosted my search funding and still have no metal resources. The only way to get metal is the market and recycling. The recycling on ruins seems to deplete rapidly, not a good alternative to mining.

Its not the best solution but you might give a shot to the metal soil filtration tech, it will allow you to build a new asset than produces infinite metal/rare metals/radioactive but the first levels barely produces any metal and its quite expensive both in metal/high tech parts.

Yeah, in a low/no metal situation the only thing you can do is go for metal soil filtration as quickly as possible.

Is the AI hampered by the same handicap in a low/no metal situation?

When the AI can't get access to metal, it definitely shows in their regime's trade report. They will buy metal off the market to make up for shortfalls. I saw the market price of metal hit 77 credits/unit for one AI major regime in a recent game.

Wow, no metal mines. Sounds like a tough challenge. What kind of world? Ice?
