Resources are the raw materials collected by Astroneers in order to create and fuel items, objects, and vehicles. Resources vary in rarity, with some occurring naturally in great quantity on a planet's surface; some appearing only on specific kinds of planets or deep below the surface; and yet others that don't occur naturally at all and must be either found as part of a discovery or traded for using a Trade Platform.

Harvesting[edit | edit source]

Naturally occurring resources, found in deposits on or below a planet's surface, can be excavated with tools like the Terrain Tool or Drill Head. This will break the deposits apart and collect the resource into portable items, often called "stacks." Some of these resources are harvested in an unrefined form and need to be smelted using the Smelting Furnace before they can be used, such as Laterite (which smelts into Aluminum) and Malachite (which smelts into Copper).

Extracting[edit | edit source]

While using the Terrain Tool to dig out Terrain, any Canisters will be used to store the excess Icon Soil.png Soil. By using the Icon Soil Centrifuge.png Soil Centrifuge, it is possible to extract certain resources directly from canisters filled with soil. These resources include: Resin, Compound, Organic, Clay, Quartz, Graphite, and Ammonium.

Trading[edit | edit source]

Once researched and built, the Icon Trade Platform.png Trade Platform is an excellent way to procure specific resources by trading Icon Scrap.png Scrap for what you need. The rarer the resource, the more scrap it costs at the Trade Platform. Scrap is a good way to obtain resources due to the abundance of salvageable items that can be put into the Medium or Large Shredders.

Discoveries[edit | edit source]

Discoveries such as space debris and supply drops will often yield resources and consumables, as well as lots of valuable salvageable parts.

Research[edit | edit source]

Most resources are able to be researched in the Research Chamber for bytes. They can provide an early stream of bytes before the player finds research items that provide more bytes per second.

Atmospheric Resources[edit | edit source]

This table lists the part per unit (PPU) the player may get on a planet of each atmospheric resource. A higher PPU will result in a shorter harvesting time.
