The Resources in Savage 1 are used to build buildings like Nexus or Towers. Only the Commander of a team can use them. Every player can get Resources from a Redstone Mine or a Gold Mine. To get Resources for your team from a mine just attack a Redstone Mine or Gold Mine with normal melee(Nomad, Savage, Legionnaire, Scavanger, Stalker, Predator) or with Venemous, Rabid or Carnivourus. Wont work if you attack with a hunting bow or somthing like that! After you attacked the Mine a few time move to your Lair/Stronghold or to a Garrison/Sublair to give your commander the needed resources. With the Tombstone Mod a new Resource building was added: Sawmill. This new building gives you automaticly Stone and Gold you just have to hit them once like a Spawnflag.
How to get ResourcesEditBasically, all you have to do to get resources - such as redstone - is attacking the redstone mine with your hatchet.
As nomad level 2 and upwards, you can carry 50 redstone.
An often used technique is to "Pmine" - what means "Powermine". The commander places a garrison as close as possible to the redstone mine. Now, you can just place your unit right between the mine and the building.
With that technique you'll save a huge amount of time. If some players act together, with that technique you can gain alot of resources in a short time. That will give your commander the ability to act very fast and can be important to win the game as well.
