Key Gameplay Element

Gathering and refining resources is a key element to gameplay on Nua. Wood and stone are gathered and refined into lumber and gravel. These are the base materials you’ll need to build structures.

How To Use Resource Plots

Resource plots are the only plots where you can gather and refine resources. If you own one of these plots you benefit from being able to gather and refine it freely. If you do not own a resource plot, you can gather the resources you need in exchange for a small amount of what you collect.

Transport for Use or Sale

After Gathering Resources

After gathering and refining resources, the next step is either to take the refined resources back to your plot of land for building or to the market to sell.

How To Transport Refined Resources

Choose from one of the forms of transportation and haul what you’ve collected.
