猩红矿 is a pre-困难模式 矿石. It is the 猩红 counterpart to the 腐化's 魔矿, and will not appear naturally in Corruption worlds. It can be found very rarely in small veins 地下 in worlds that contain Crimson, however the only usable quantities come from the 克苏鲁之脑 Boss, and from the 克苏鲁之眼 (only in worlds containing Crimson). Crimtane Ore emits a faint glow when placed, similar to Demonite Ore.
Like Demonite Ore, the 镐 power required to mine Crimtane changes with location. Below ground level, a 金镐 or better is needed, while above ground, any pickaxe will do. Alternatively, any form of tile-destroying explosives, such as 炸弹s can be used.
- Crimtane Ore does not spread the 猩红. This rule applies both to the pre-hardmode and hardmode stages.
- While Demonite Ore can be found in large groups in 腐化 裂隙s, Crimtane ore does not have a boosted rate in 猩红 裂隙s.
- Crimtane Ore, and its counterpart 魔矿, can be mined extremely early-game with bombs, though because they are both very rare this is not a very viable method to gather any appreciable amount.
- Placed Crimtane has a new texture.
- Crafting recipe changed to 3 Crimtane ore instead of 4 Crimtane ore.
- Now used in the Crimtane Brick recipe
- 1.2.3：Increased stack limit from 99 to 999.
- 1.2.1：No Longer requires a Deathbringer Pickaxe or over to mine.
