Purpose:

Advanced resources are special resources that can be found to some extent on any type of land. One of these resources is required for each focus path, though you can mine all three resources no matter what focus path you eventually choose. These resources are very limited and finding ore deposits will be sporadic when your explorers are searching for resources. Because the element needed for production of the items for the focus paths needs to be pure, the daily returns from your mines, even in the optimal locations is going to be low and will vary slightly from day to day.

Uranium:

UraniumThis is the standard Uranium 238 that is used in nuclear weapons. This resource is most easily found in sandy areas and is not very abundant in developed areas or heavily forested areas. As such, you will find the highest number of ore deposits in the desert and will find very little uranium in former cities or forests.

Uranium is used in the nuke path for constructing nuclear weapons. You will need purified uranium extracted from your mines to go into these weapons. If you do not have enough ore, you will not be able to finish the weapon your camp is working on.

Production:

You will find ore deposits occasionally when you send out explorers. Once you have found a uranium deposit you will need to build a mine on that deposit and staff the mine with workers. You can only build one mine for each deposit and each mine will require 40 people as staff. These miners will extract as much pure ore from these mines as possible. The returns from these mines will vary according to the terrain type you chose when signing up. Mines may eventually run out or collapse. Collapsing mines could kill some of the miners inside.

Trade:

Depending on which path and terrain you choose, you may want to use the Trade Market or alliance aid to move uranium around. If you are on a nuke path you can gain your needed uranium from other players who decide to sell it on the market or from aid provided by your non-nuke (or even nuke) allies. If you are not on the nuke path, you can sell the uranium you find on the market for CEP's or send it to nuke path allies through aid.

Titanium:

TitaniumThis light, yet strong metal is highly valued for the military path. Camps following this path will need purified titanium to build mechs to equip their army with. This resource is most easily found in areas with fertile, heavily forested terrain. Cities and mountainous areas generally have very low deposits of this resource.

In order to build mechs for the military path, a camp will need plenty of titanium from your mines. If you do not have enough titanium, you will not be able to build mechs.

Production:

You will find ore deposits occasionally when you send out explorers. Once you have found a titanium deposit you will need to build a mine on that deposit and staff the mine with workers. You can only build one mine for each deposit and each mine will require 40 people as staff. These miners will extract as much pure ore from these mines as possible. The returns from these mines will vary according to the terrain type you chose when signing up. Mines may eventually run out or collapse. Collapsing mines could kill some of the miners inside.

Trade:

Depending on which path and terrain you choose, you may want to use the Trade Market or alliance aid to move titanium around. If you are on a militaristic path you can gain your needed titanium from other players who decide to sell it on the market or from aid provided by your non-military allies. If you are not on the military path, you can sell the titanium you find on the market for CEP's or send it to military path allies through aid.

Gold:

GoldThis valuable, soft metal is still highly valued after the apocalypse. For those choosing an economic path, gold will be necessary to create gold bars for their reserves. Gold can most easily be found in mountainous areas, while deserts and cities usually have low natural deposits.

You will need to extract pure gold from your mines to be melted into bars if you choose the economic focus. A lack of gold will halt production until you can get more.

Depending on which path and terrain you choose, you may want to use the Trade Market or alliance aid to move gold around. If you are on an economic path you can gain your needed gold from other players who decide to sell it on the market or from aid provided by your non-economy allies. If you are not on the economy path, you can sell the gold you find on the market for CEP's or send it to economy path allies through aid.
