Melds are a way of scoring and seeing your progress in Mine Things. A meld is a collection of items that are combined together. When you make a meld the items have to all be in your home city, and you have to have every item in the meld (no partial or incomplete melds). Each meld is worth 1 meld point, which is the way of showing how many melds you have. Melds have different colors, depending upon the rarity of items used in the meld. Different colors do not affect the amount of meld points you get.
Melds are the "trophies" of Minethings. Players can combine items they receive in various combinations to create a meld. Melds are liquidized back into their components if the player chooses to move cities - other than that, there is no way to break apart a meld once it is created. Each meld created increases your meld-count by 1, which is displayed next to players' usernames.
Currently melds control a few aspects of the game. For every meld you own, your maximum battery life will be increased by 1 hour, and melds unlock professions, and function as a kind of status symbol within the game. What's the fun of a game if there isn't a bit of competition involved, right?

Getting to 10 melds and sending a decent ship out towards the great ? on the map (in Aso) will reveal a city named Daigard. Early adventurers had to span the great distance with a lowly raft at 5 km/hr.
Every 1 meld: You get 1h of battery.
Every 5 melds: On the land your vehicles get a 0 - meld/5 random defense bonus. Example: a 20 meld player will get a bonus of 0-4 defense, if they are being attacked. This bonus is effected by the shield. On the ocean your ships hull is increase by melds/5 %. Example: A 50 meld player's ships will have 10% more hull, or 10 more hull per 100. This is not effected by the shield.
Every 10 melds you have boosts both of the Factory Professions and pilots. Workers gain 1 cph (component per hour with every 10 melds, making them more valuable employees. Manufacturers' factories produce more efficient mining bots with every 10 melds they possess, capable of finding 'damaged' items on top of the normal finds. Pilots get to use 1 more aircraft for every melds they have, starting at 4 aircraft with 40 melds.
The Medal Detector gadget shows how much a meld will cost, as well as a page for the top 10 cheapest meld in your home city.
