Resin is a natural resource generated on all planets in the form of yellowish-golden clusters of tubes. Resin can be extracted using the Terrain Tool.

In the early stages of the game, when the surrounding terrain is less explored, resin can be crafted using Oxygen Filters and spent a significant amount of time exploring forests, mountains, and caves without tethers.
