The term resources refers to materials extracted from the resource buildings which are used throughout the game. These materials are fundamental to your yard's operation as they are required to perform almost any action in the game. Resources can be stored in your yard's Storage Silo and your outposts. When you hover your cursor to the bars on the upper-left corner, a mouse over tip will indicate the maximum capacity at your current Storage Silo level and outpost amount. At 100% capacity, any more resources received from loot will be irretrievably lost. If you try to bank you will get a message saying that the storage is full. If you get any resources from quests or if you have many outposts with a lot of resources, when you lose them the remaining resources will go over your storage capacity, but no resources will be lost. Wild monsters can't loot from the destruction of your Outpost, Storage Silo and Town Hall, but they can loot from damage and the destruction of resource gatherers.
There are 4 main types of resources: Twigs which is extracted from the Twig Snapper, Pebbles which is extracted from the Pebble Shiner, Putty which is extracted from the Putty Squisher, and Goo which is extracted from the Goo Factory.
