Resource Availability

From Craft the World Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Resources in Craft the World come in many varieties and come from different sources. Some are infinitely abundant, while others are limited by the size of the map - with everything else falling somewhere in between.


Infinite Resources[edit | edit source]

These resources can be collected/harvested indefinitely with a proper supply setup or through natural growth.

Tree & Bush components[edit | edit source]

Water[edit | edit source]

  • Can be gathered off the ground (before it evaporates) or from stone-lined pools.
  • Can be forced using the Rain or Snow spell.
  • Can be melted from snow or ice on Snow World.

Animal components[edit | edit source]

Monster (Hostile) components[edit | edit source]

Underground spawns[edit | edit source]


Nearly Infinite[edit | edit source]

These resources are so numerous in availability that while not technically infinite, there are more of these available on a standard map than a player could realistically use in a single game.

  • Dirt - more than anyone could ever use... no, really.
  • Coal - initially there is a limited supply of coal blocks that can be harvested in a given map, but this limit is removed once Railroad Constructing tech is unlocked, allowing coal to be crafted. The limit of coal you can produce is tied to the availability of the dirt used to construct it.

Limited[edit | edit source]

These resources and their quantities are set during map generation.

  • Sand
  • Iron Ore
  • Silver Ore
  • Gold Ore
  • Mithril Ore
  • Crystals :
    • Blue Crystal
    • Red Crystal
    • Dark Crystal
    • Green Crystal
    • Purple Crystal
    • All Crystals can be found by digging in the lowest earth layers. But it is much easier to get them from dungeons with the bosses. You have to be there anyway to get the pieces of the portal you need. When you destroy chests and furniture in the dungeons, you will get all types of crystals. Watch the stone walls of the dungeons. If there is a coloured spot in the wall, you destroy the wall to get even more crystals. Crystals are not rare in dungeons and are very easy to get this way!

An exception to the limitation of the listed ores exists in the Underground World. Once a player researches the Substance Transformation tech it becomes possible to craft the various ores.

Looting Exceptions[edit | edit source]

There are a few exceptions to the above rule for limited resources - most involve loot drops from hostile monsters

  • Goblins, Frostlings and their camps occasionally drop an item from an assortment of possibilities. While this does occasionally earn the player a rare or precious ore/gem, the low drop-rate and long respawn time of goblins themselves prevents this from being a viable alternative for obtaining limited resources.
