Understanding Resources

Recommended Posts

I'm writing this guide as a reference for how resources work, and their importance in the game. First, let's break things down by the two different types of resources.

 

Raw Resources

Raw resources are resources that you do not need power to produce. They're typically cheap to build the mine or other improvement necessary to extract them, and have a low upkeep cost. Some raw resources, like Coal, Oil, and Uranium are used as fuels for power plants. Food is a raw resource that is necessary for all nations to feed their people.

 

Not every raw resource is available to every nation. Raw resources are continent specific. Here's a table showing the availability of resources on the 6 different continents.

Each continent has 3 resources available to it, plus food.

 

Oil

Oil is a power resource used to power Oil Power Plants and can be refined into Gasoline.

 

Coal

Coal is a power resource used to power Coal Power Plants and can be refined (along with Iron) into Steel.

 

Iron

Iron is a raw resource that is only used to make Steel (along with Coal).

 

Bauxite

Bauxite is a raw resource that is only used to make Aluminum (no other resources are required).

 

Lead

Lead is a raw resource that is only used to make Munitions (no other resources are required).

 

Uranium

Uranium is a raw resource that is used to power Nuclear Power Plants, and is also used to build Nuclear Weapons.

 

Manufactured Resources

There are 4 additional resources in the game that can be manufactured from raw resources. These resources are Steel, Aluminum, Gasoline, and Munitions. Manufacturing improvements, like Oil Refineries or Steel Mills, require power to operate and are far more expensive than raw resources. Manufactured resources are typically in higher demand and sell at a higher price than raw resources. Any nation on any continent can make a Manufactured resource so long as they have the necessary raw resources.

 

Steel

Steel is a manufactured resource that is made from Coal and Iron with a Steel Mill. Steel is used to create Tanks and Ships, as well as some City Improvements and National Projects.

 

Aluminum

Aluminum is a manufactured resource that is made from Bauxite with an Aluminum Refinery. Aluminum is used to create Aircraft and Missiles, as well as some City Improvements and National Projects.

 

Gasoline

Gasoline is a manufactured resource that is made from Oil with an Oil Refinery. Gasoline is used by Tanks, Aircraft, Ships, and Missiles to operate.

 

Munitions

Munitions are a manufactured resource that is made from Lead with a Munitions Factory. Munitions can be used by Soldiers, and must be used by Tanks, Aircraft, and Ships to operate.
