Island reserves

Main article: Home Island

Each Home Island contains varying amounts of natural resources. This amount is modified by the resources size modifier on the Map Selection screen while the amount which can be extracted per tile is further affected by the ore mining yield modifier on the Game Difficulty screen. Neither modifier can be changed once the island has been founded.

It should be noted that most of the above natural resources are non-renewable, though the following exceptions apply:

  • Dirt can be created by dumping Compost onto the ground.
  • Sand can be created from Rock by processing it in a Crusher to produce Gravel, then crushed again into Sand.
    • Rock itself is non-renewable on the Home Island but can be imported indefinitely from the Rock Mine.
    • While non-renewable, it should be noted that it is very unlikely that the island will run out of Rock before all of the ores.
  • Wood is infinite, since Trees can be planted with a tree planter and imported indefinitly from a Sawmill resource.
  • Water can be indefinitely collected by 4 different ways:
    • Rain replenishes the Natural Groundwater Resource lode (which can be pumped with a Groundwater Pump).
    • Rain can also be collected directly with the use of a Rainwater Harvester.
    • Seawater can be pumped limitlessly from the sea with a Seawater Pump(Tall) (This method requires the post processing of the Seawater into the Water.)
    • Imported infinitely from a Groundwater Well resource.
  • With water being limitless, it also makes several of it's (and Seawater's) subproducts infinite, such as: Steams( Hi Lo Dep), Chilled Water, Brine, Chlorine, Sulfur, Ammonia, all of the Food Chain and many more..
  • Oxygen (and Nitrogen) can be extracted indefinitely with an Air Separator.
  • Crude Oil consumption can potentially be avoided in the late game using the Biodiesel technology for Diesel and Naphtha Reforming for Naphtha.
