Renewable resource

A renewable resource is a resource that can be recreated indefinitely in survival without exploiting glitches (as opposed to a non-renewable resource). While running out of resources isn't likely to be a factor due to theoretically infinite (and still quite vast in practice) map generation, this is a list of resources that can be produced over and over without having to explore for more. However, running out of resources can be a bigger issue on Superflat worlds, where resources are less plentiful, or in PvP maps, where one would like to obtain resources without having to conquer more land.

The listed fully renewable products are items which can be crafted, smelted, or brewed using only renewable resources. For example, Cookies are renewable as they only require Wheat and Cocoa Beans that can be regrown infinitely, while TNT isn't because it requires Sand, which is not renewable.

Anything that is dropped by a monster or animal (besides the Dragon Egg dropped by the Ender Dragon and the Nether Star dropped by the Wither) is renewable because all mobs (besides the Ender Dragon (one per world) and Wither (requires Soul Sand)) can respawn and be killed again for more loot.

Renewable resources

Resources that can be obtained indefinitely. Some require non-renewable materials in their production, but the process will never consume those materials.

Obsidian
Grid Obsidian.png
Grid Ender Chest.png
  • Entering a nether portal for which there is no matching exit will generate 14 free blocks of obsidian (and 4 more "ledge" blocks if the portal is formed in mid-air). Only mining the corners (and "ledges") will keep the portal active if desired. More on here
  • Each time entering an end portal will generate a 5x5 platform of obsidian at the same position in the end. In other words, the obsidian can be mined and will be "refilled" next time you re-enter the end (note that, to leave the end, you will have first to defeat the Enderdragon).

Diamond pickaxes, required to mine obsidian, can be obtained by trading with villager blacksmiths.
