Old unreleased content
Unreleased contentThis article or section about an item or feature that is datamined. The discussion of such content is forbidden in official game communities.
This page lists old unreleased content which was datamined from old builds of the game and will not be implemented into the game, according to an official video by Coffee Stain.
This page is being preserved for archival purposes. As a matter of policy no new unreleased content should be added here, but additional information regarding the existing content is still considered relevant.
Dark Matter was a crafting component created in the Hadron Collider. Guessing from the power requirement of the Hadron Collider, it might've been created only using power.

The Quantum Crystal was a crafting component used to create Superposition Oscillators.

SAM Ingot was a crafting component smelted from SAM Ore that was solely used to craft SAM Fluctuators.
|6 × SAM Ore||2||1 × SAM Ingot (30 / min)|
The SAM Fluctuator was a crafting component used to build the Remote Storage and the Converter.

Heat Resistant Suit
The Heat Resistant Suit would have been used to prevent the engineer from taking any heat damage. It is unknown where it would get used, as currently there is no heat damage (unlike Radiation and its suit for example). It didn't change the engineer's appearance.
Rebar Scatter Gun

|200 × Screw|
|20 × Steel Pipe|
The Rifle Mk.2 was an upgraded version of the Rifle. It could only hold six rounds (instead of 10) and dealt 12 damage per hit (instead of six). Just like the Rebar Scatter Gun, it could be unlocked in Patch 0.1.5 and was removed in Patch 0.1.6.

Mk.2 variants of buildings
These buildings weren't introduced because Coffee Stain felt they would need unique designs, which takes a lot of work just for them to be the same but faster, especially with overclocking available.
The Converter was a building that could convert any two raw resources into any one raw resource of the player's choice. It used a temporary model.
The Hadron Collider was a building used to produce Dark Matter. Due to not being implemented correctly, the recipe could not be selected and the building was never operational.
It had unusually high power usage, which didn't fluctuate. Additionally, it reportedly wasn't animated, simply lighting up while producing.
Industrial Lighting was a Power Pole-like with two power connections. Despite its name and appearance, it did not emit any light, even while powered, rendering it useless. It consumed 1 MW to "operate".
It was not implemented due to being unintuitive. The intended experience was introduced using Wall Outlets.
The Quantum Encoder was a building used for crafting the Quantum Crystal and Superposition Oscillator.
The Remote Storage was a building that could be used to access items stored within the storage unit from anywhere, accessible from the inventory. It only had one input and no outputs.
It can be briefly seen in the E3 trailer.
Conveyor Belt and Lift Mk.6
The Mk.6 Conveyor Belt and Mk.6 Conveyor Lift would have been the highest conveyor mark.
The belt could be accessed and datamined, with its description stating a capacity of 900 parts/min. After its removal from public builds, the capacity was increased to 1200 parts/min, as confirmed by translation strings. They also confirm the existence of a matching Mk.6 lift, which never appeared in a public build.
It can be assumed the increase happened at the same time the capacity of Mk.4 and Mk.5 conveyors was increased in Patch 0.1.15.
The Mk.6 belt is showcased in the Conveyor Belt Speeds teaser alongside all other Conveyor Belt marks and has been subsequently mentioned in several dev streams.
- One of Jace's first tasks at Coffee Stain was to prototype the Remote Storage.
