Resource bins are pieces of furniture generating and storing Resources. Your Shop can hold up to 3 bins of each resource. Although bins automatically produce their resource, players have to tap them to collect these resources.
There are 3 tiers of resources.
- Tier 1 are wood, iron, herb, and leather.
- Tier 2 are fabric, hard wood, steel, and oil.
- Tier 3 are mana and jewels.
Players start with 1 Iron Bin and are given 1 Wood Bin during the tutorial for free. All Tier 1 resources are available at the start of the game. Upgrading resource bins increases their production capacity (how long it takes for them to stop producing) and storage capacity (how much of a resource you can store) but not their production speed (how fast you produce resources). Production speed depends on the level of the production building in your town (eg Iron Mine for Iron or Tannery for Leather ).
Each resource bin has its own production cap, storage cap, and collection timer. Compared to having one resource bin, having 3 bins makes your production 3 times faster and your storage 3 times larger.
You currently have zero iron in stock and two empty iron bins, one level 4 and one level 5. The Iron Mine in your Town is not active, so each of your bins produces roughly one iron every 20 seconds. The production of the level-4 bin caps at 20, so it takes 20 x 20 = 400 seconds for it to be full and stop producing. Similarly, the level-5 bin is full and stops producing after 25 x 20 = 500 seconds.
