Resources are common materials or ingots used in the construction of new items through crafting. Raw resources can be gathered by mining or harvesting them from the world, while crafted ones are alloys that have to be crafted. Processed resources like ingots or powders have to be smelted or refined.

Only 500 of each resource can be held by the player at once. However, Storage Crates are able to store larger quantities.

There are presently 20 types of raw resources, 5 alloys and 8 Ingots or powders in the game:

Trivia[ | ]

  • Prior to Version 0.5 resources were held in pallets. Pallets held a maximum of 100 units of their type of resource. Each pallet had several different models reflecting the amount of resources remaining. Once all resources stored in a pallet are consumed the pallet would disappear.
