Astroneer - Resin

astroneer resin

Resin is likely the second resource that players will come across when starting a new game in Astroneer. A bright yellow resource that looks a bit like plastic tubes bunched together. The resource will spawn in a similar way to compound. You will see large amounts of it above the surface and when you dig below, you will find various amounts. 

Where To Find Resin

Resin can be found by exploring the surface of the planet. You will likely find large amounts of it all over the place. It is also quite common to find below the surface and much easier to spot due to the yellow colour. Once you find some, keep digging into the soil or rock behind it to find an increasing amount. Some deposits can yield an incredibly large amount of this resource.
