I don't know if this has been asked, but I've looked around and I haven't found any answers to this particular question: How do Settlers gain the materials needed to build their stuff? Do we have to find resource nodes and mine them? Are there some kind of supply caches we scour the map for ? Also are the materials we use for the settler constructions different from crafting materials ? Or is it just an issue of money where settlers just spend coin for constructions? I'm not talking about housing, just strictly the 'Settler' path stuff in the open world. If anyone could answer this I'd be grateful.
