Craft the World Wiki

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[ | ]

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

Tree & Bush components[ | ]

Water[ | ]

  • 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[ | ]

Monster (Hostile) components[ | ]

Underground spawns[ | ]

Nearly Infinite[ | ]

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.

  • Earth - 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 earth used to construct it.

Limited[ | ]

These resources and their quantities are set during map generation.

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[ | ]

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

  • Iron Ore - Some monsters occasionally drop weapons that can be deconstructed (via the crafting window) into iron ore or wood.
  • 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.
