Metal can be used to repair a player's ship, friendly ships, fighters, and repair drones. This is done by either tapping or long-pressing on the target you wish to repair. One metal repairs 150 hull points, but this amount can be increased by certain Item Types, especially Heteroclite-faction equipment.
Dark Matter is used as fuel by Neutron Drives.
The other resources currently do not have any other uses.
