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.png Food items, which have their own section. Water.png 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 Wood can be gathered in larger quantities than items such as different kinds of Health.png medication, as they are easier to find in usable condition.

List of resources[edit | edit source]

Low-end resources[edit | edit source]

Trash and Scrap can be refined into useful materials.
