Surviving The Aftermath's tutorials: Episode 2, Resources.

The game features several resources you'll need to build, upgrade and equip your people with. Resources listed below are separate from various Food items, which have their own section. Water and hydration is also an important resource of its own, but works differently from the ones put in boxes. Resources are either scavenged from the colony view, traded, gained from Events, created at the various buildings or collected from the world map.

Gathering resources from the World Map is handled by Specialists. Low-end materials such as Food or Planks can be gathered in larger quantities than items such as Medicine, as they're easier to find in usable condition. The World Map is the only place to find Components and Electronics early on to get your Energy Production going.

Basic resources[edit]

Basic resources consist mostly of building materials used throughout the game. They're easy to gather or refine, but have little trade value. They're stored in the Stockpile. Most can be used "as is" or refined further into higher grade resources.
