Exploring space and understanding all it has to offer is key to surviving and thriving in Starfield. The game includes real elements from our world that are used for important crafting and other uses. There is a periodic table of sorts and you will soon learn about the multitude of amazing elements and compounds to use in this world. Below you will find a brief explanation of the Starfield periodic table and all the available resources in-game.
Starfield Resources Explained
You can see what resources can be gathered in a particular area, planet, or moon, by using your scanner. The scanner will show the name of each resource as it is shown below, unabbreviated. One important part of what makes Starfield so engaging is the way the creators have balanced real-world resources with sci-fi. Don’t worry, though, you don’t need even a basic understanding of our periodic table as you will learn as you explore and discover more elements and resources.

The resources you have collected can be used to craft various items at any Workbench, Lab, or Station found in the Lodge basement. Start a Research Project which is divided into five types, and find out more about the project including what you need to gather and craft. Once the research project has been completed you can craft the new researched item at the correct Starfield workbench any time.
