    Hello! I have been working on a 4x game with a space setting. I will start by saying that I have not decided if I want this to be more serious or a little bit goofy (think Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy or Futurama or something), but I am actually leaning goofy if I can make it work. Anyway, that just means I’m open to all types of suggestions.<div>

    I am looking for resources in two types, renewable and non-renewable. I am currently working with:
    Nonrenewable:<div>

    *Fuel

    *Metals

    Renewable

    </div><div>

    *Food

    *Wood

    I think wood would be more practical than it might seem at first, but it feels thematically broken. So first of all, I am looking for a renewable substitute for wood (or a good argument for making fuel renewable and then another non-renewable source, which might actually be easier)
    Other than that, I am open to any suggestions for possible resources to replace or supplement these, though I am hoping to keep it to around 4 or 5 total.</div><div>

    Again, I am open to either serious or silly space-themed ideas. πŸ™‚
    </div>

    Thanks for any suggestions you can come up with!

    Huh. The formatting of that post was weird. I wonder if it’s because I wrote it in the mobile app? This is my first post so I’m not sure what happened. Most of my line breaks seem to have been eliminated.

      You are able to go back in and edit previous posts. You can clean it up if you would like.

        Thanks! I tried on the mobile app (where I wrote it), and I could only find a way to edit my reply. I just tried editing on my laptop and it created different issues. Oh well. πŸ™‚ Thanks again for your help!

    For a renewable resource, consider “bioplastics” which may be more thematic than wood. Instead of a fossil fuels plastic, it can be an evolution of one of our current renewable plastics.

      OOOH, I like that! Thanks! I was thinking something like a polymer, but that didn’t seem right. The notion of a “bioplastic” is great! And it could also work well if I go with a less serious theme. Thanks again!

        Going either route maybe can find inspiration from those genres. You could have anti-matter or dark matter. Not know the whole scope of the game, renewable energy sources could enter as a currency (trade light photons, solar power, solar winds). Bio-plasm?Is Soylent green a renewable resource?
