Resin is a natural resource in Astroneer. Resin appears in clusters of yellowish-gold tubes.
Resin is obtained by using the Terrain Tool on deposits of resin scattered across the different planets.
The Soil Centrifuge produces 8 Resin with two full Canisters of Soil.
The Trade Platform gives 2 Resin for every Scrap, up to 8 total for 4 Scrap.
Resin is used to craft the following items :
Pre-Research Update Resin.
- In version 131 of Astroneer, the player could sometimes collect a gold-colored resin instead of the normal lavender resin. This was a graphical glitch, as the color was reverted after reloading the save.
- Resin was recolored golden yellow after the Research Update (it was previously lavender).
- Before being removed in 0.4.10221.0, some spires generated with resin.
