To see which resource is required for each recipe, please go here.

Mining Resources

Mining resources are obtained by hitting their respective stationary source (a certain tier pickaxe might be needed). These slowly generate units of their resource until the maximum capacity is reached. The mining resources stone, gold and diamond also have a chance to be obtained when digging with a shovel.

Although berries are not considered as a resource, they have about the same regeneration speed and are also obtained by hitting their source, however they do not naturally appear in different sizes.

Wood

Wood is the most common resource in starve.io. It can be gathered with a pickaxe or by hand when hitting a tree. This resource is the most essential one in the game and cannot be missed. This resource is used in a lot of recipes, so always try to keep some wood in the inventory. With a better pickaxe, gathering wood can be done a lot more efficiently. 1 wood is collected per hit by hand, 2 wood from a wooden pickaxe, 3 wood from a stone pickaxe, 4 wood from a golden pickaxe, 5 wood from a diamond pickaxe, 6 wood from an amethyst pickaxe, and 7 wood from a Reidite Pickaxe.
