Gathering/Crafting Materials

How does one gather materials to craft in this game? For many items, I need things like metal and glass for which I can’t find anywhere on the spacecraft.

For now, you can buy materials in cargo. In the future, we will have a salvage crew department, which will gather resources from meteors, wrecks, etc.

metal is called steel in the game, and you can get it from deconstructing lots of things (like tables) and its in some rooms too, and glass can be deconstructed from windows
