Resource Types

Resources in Dual Universe are naturally occurring materials obtained from planets, moons, and asteroids. In Dual Universe, the term "resources" generally refers to any voxels that can be extracted from a planetary body. In most cases, resources must be refined into pure materials before they can be used to create elements and honeycomb and then used in construction. Resources that can be refined to pure materials are classified in the UI as Mineable Materials, known as ores these are listed in the table below. Terrain Materials are resources that cannot be refined into pure material. Different mineable materials have varying levels of rarity, which determines how difficult they are to find in the game world. Furthermore, some mineable material can only be found in certain places (such as on asteroids or moons), or only in certain planetary biomes. As a result, players wont be able to find every possible resource on a single planet. The Resource Distribution table below indicates the planet where that resource is found. A Territory Scanner is an element when activated on a tile will analyze the volume of mineable materials beneath the scanner, see Territory Scanning page.

Mineable Materials - Ores

All ore and refined materials in Dual Universe are categorized into Tiers, where Tier 1 is the most common to Tier 5 the most rare.

Coal Pure Carbon 1.35
Hematite Pure Iron 5.04
Quartz Pure Silicon 2.65
T2 Uncommon Limestone Pure Calcium 2.71

Terrain Materials

Terrain materials are naturally occurring materials such as soil, rock, sand, snow etc. and are obtained from planets, moons and asteroids. They can be gathered by players using and of the Dig Mode capable tools such as the Mining Tool or Terraforming Tool, and once collected, placed again with the Alt Mode Mining Tool. These materials make up the vast amount of natural voxels found in the game world.
