The Resource Harvester doesn’t require too much in the way of resources for crafting. To build it, players need to have 450 Newbucks and 10 Cotton Plorts.

After you acquire the Resource Harvester upgrade, you must venture into the Starlight Strand region. After discovering this region, you must brace yourself to deal with the hostile Slimes standing in your way. Avoid the feral Slimes and look for mud geysers around this island’s rock edges. Use the Harvester to absorb the geyser; that is how you get your hands on Silky Sand.

This rare material can be used to craft decorations and Extra Tanks in the Fabricator. Extra Tanks will allow you to hold more items as you explore the open-world Slime Rancher 2 has to offer.
