Once refined, the bmats can be retrieved in as is with
left click or as crates using the
right click context menu. A crate of basic materials holds 100 units.
Basic Materials are the most common resource used for building, rebuilding, and upgrading most structures either using a Hammer or a Construction Vehicle. It is also the most common resource for adding upgrades/add-ons to Bunkers and Trenches.
Basic Materials are the only resource used to repair damaged (not destroyed) structures and vehicles. Repairs are always done with a hammer and Basic Materials in your inventory.
They are also used to fully repair a vehicle's health and armor at a Garage with the repair button in its menu, with the required 100 Basic Materials in the building's inventory.
Basic Materials stack up to 100 in inventory slots.
Crates of Basic Materials can be stored in the stockpiles of Storage Depot and Seaport, up to 1000 in public stockpiles and up to 300 in Reserve Stockpiles. Only crates retrieved directly from your Refinery queue can be stored in a Reserve Stockpile.
Basic Materials cannot be used in any meaningful way when in crate form.
- Your frontline Bases should always have Basic Materials in them. Without it, you cannot build or rebuild on newly captured ground, repair your defenses, or repair damaged armored vehicles. Basic Materials on the frontlines is just as vital as weapons, ammunition and manpower
- Due to every production building in the backline regions requiring them, always have Basic Materials producing at your Refinery so your factories never stop producing equipment
- Producing Basic Materials in copious amounts and having it widely available everywhere is essential to the war effort, as it helps every player in some way
