Luxury Resources are one of two types of resources in Humankind. They provide economic bonuses to all of the player's Cities and can be traded with other Empires.

Resources can be exploited by a City or an Outpost in the same Territory by building an Artisan's Quarter on top of a Luxury Resource deposit. In addition, any Luxuries bought from other Empires will provide the same bonuses and effects, as if the player owned them.

Besides the Artisan's Quarter, Luxury Manufactories can be built on top of Luxury deposits and provide more impactful benefits.

List of Luxury Resources[]

Every different Luxury will provide a unique effect. The effects provided by the Luxury Resources can stack up by each copy that is owned and/or exploited.

Besides the unique effects, each copy of a Luxury Resource provides +4 Stability Stability on all Cities.

  • The stability bonus will be +10 Stability per owned copy of Luxury on all Cities, if the Luxury is exploited by a Luxury Manufactory.
