Ore Detector is a block in Space Engineers. When attached to a ship and supplied with power, it will display up to 5 ore locations on the player's HUD when they are within range (exactly like the Hand Drill does, but with much greater range).
Some times when powered down will need an ore to be mined to restart the Ore Detector.
If installed on a Small Ship, the range is 50 meters.
If installed on a Large Ship or Station, the range is 150 meters.
The range of the Ore Detector does not stack, just overlaps.
The Ore Detector requires 1x1x2 blocks of space. It will attach to other blocks on all faces of its cube-shaped base. The cylindrical half of the detector does not attach to blocks.
