There is an abundance of iridium. I have over 350000 units of iridium and can't even upgrade anything with it (wish I could sell it for credits). Same with platinum and palladium . Element zero on ther other hand I am finding is very scarce. Once I upgraded my scanner I can complete a planet in 5-7 minutes.
I’m armed and I’m drinking. You don’t want to listen to advice from me, amigo.
