Were implementing the pallet system into the game. The player can only hold finite amount of resource after mining it or chopping down trees. If you can no longer hold a particular type of resource it creates a pallet beside you. These can then be picked up an moved in the world as physical objects.
Resources can be extracted from them or added to them. If you craft something it takes into consider all the resource pallet's nearby and also whatever resources are in your inventory. Players will most likely be shipping these pallets across the world via freighters and flat-bed trucks to a central crafting warehouse they build.
This will enable the ability to become a pirate and steal other players resources. Or destroy their workshop. It will also help create a dynamic economy and encourage trade networks to be built.
Below is a screenshot of the Wood, Stone, Metal, and Oil pallet/containers.
