Time World uses three primary resources: Credits, Ore and Energy. It also has two secondary resources: Coupons and Gold.
Primary resources are the resources that are generated from certain buildings over time and are used for construction and research. They are affected by Resource Bonuses. They can also be traded by using the Tavern.
Credits are generated from the Control Centers on your planets. They are used in every building upgrade, every research and every type of ship. They are also used to purchase Equipment and Auction items from the Mall They are also used to reload the Targets page in the Rank screen.
Ore is generated from the Ore Mines on your planets. It is used in every building upgrade, every research and every type of ship. It is also used to build Wonders and repair Pillars.
Resource bonuses are things that affect how much in extra resources you gain when you collect them from the generating building. The bonus does not happen until you press the donate button so you can minimize what is gained.
The first bonus comes from the Production skill found inside the Institute. This gains 1% extra per level, up to 30%.
The second comes either your Galaxy's Wonder or the currently held Pillar. Each level of Wonder gives an extra 10%, up to 30% and holding a Pillar brings that up to 50%.
The third comes from the VIP card. This gains a flat 30% no matter which VIP card you use.
If it is for the Gold Market then the bonus doubles!
Secondary resources are the resources used to purchase special items in the Mall or to reset Hero Stats.
