Depending on the server, there is either a decent amount of ways to get titanium (i.e. breaking down blocks from alien/zirax installations or multi tooling CV thrusters off wrecks). Anyways the issue is when you break these things down you get Titanium Plates instead of Rods. But the Oscillator and Flux Coil (which are required components to build a lot of things, even a T2 multi tool) require rods and I don't think you can deconstruct the plates down. So my suggestion is to replace giving 5 Titanium plates out from a block with an equivalent amount of 20 Titanium Rods. This will make the beginning experience much more fluid.
