A planet's core can contain four different ores:

  • Neutronium
  • Tritanium
  • Duranium
  • Molybdenum

Each mineral will have its own density inside the planet. The density determines how fast you can mine a mineral, ranging from 0 to 100. This number mostly gives you the amount of that mineral you'll get each round, if you operate 100 mines. Of course the supply of minerals in a planet is not endless, so you'll also know how much of a mineral you can mine out of a planet at most, that is how much mineral is stored in the planet's core. Minerals that are mined are stored on the planet's surface and you are able to load them onto your ships or use them for building things.

The single minerals have their own uses:

Neutronium is the fuel within this universe. If a ship wants to move through space, its engines will consume fuel. If you run out of fuel, your ship will not be able to do anything, like fighting or moving further. How much fuel you'll need depends upon the type of engines your ship is equipped with and the ship's mass.

Tritanium, Duranium and Molybdenum are the three basic minerals that are used to build any space structures, that is mostly ships, but also starbases, torpedoes, and fighters.

Now the question: how do I get those resources?

Resources come from planets. They can be already mined (on the surface of the planet) or in the ground. Resources on the surface can be freely loaded onto ships or used to build ships, torpedoes, and fighters by a starbase at the planet. You need to build mines to extract resources that are in the ground.
