Limestone is a non-renewable natural resource found only on the island. It is obtained solely via mining in a Designations. It is a required ingredient for the production on Cement, Glass Mix, and late-game Molten Copper. It can also be used as an input in the conversion of excess Sulfur into Slag, though care should be given to monitor resource levels to avoid exhausting Limestone mines.

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 nonfrom 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 mined infinitely 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 either Iron Ore or Copper Ore.
  • Groundwater is replenished by rain.
  • Crude Oil consumption can potentially be avoided in the late game using the Biodiesel technology for Diesel and Naphtha Reforming for Naphtha.
