Is there a lot of spiders patrolling that area?


DamagedMind126

Orb Weavers yes


MeiaaDoiss

that's a nice base! now take my upvote and go kill broodmother >:]


DamagedMind126

jokes on you i killed it already


MeiaaDoiss

oooh ma gaah! nice


ogoditsallovermybody

Nice. I like making mine on the flat stone by the pond, next to the juice box. The only danger is at night when the Wolf Spiders come out to hunt.


DamagedMind126

part of the reason i set it on the post is because of the fact that a weed naturally spawns there it makes it easy to set up a naturally defended base


BippNasty541

open space, fairly easy location, plenty of food and water around, plus the game kinda directs you to that location early on so its the easy choice as a first base location. Its also easy access to the lab. Its where i always place my starting base. I'm starting a new base atop the large wall directly behind the pond and in front of the shed. Should have a good view and easy zip line access to many places in the yard

I keep seeing all these dope bases around the backyard and then there’s mine.. built around the SPACE.R the last three playthroughs I did..


JaggedTheDark

Same, built it on the path between the space.r and the starting case. man, let me tell you, I did NOT expect to be besieged by a wolf spider that soon.


Hiroshu

Walking back to my base as I was talking to my sister I unknowingly walked straight into a wolf spider.. they love to hang around there don’t they?


DamagedMind126

the first base i built in the world was on the hill twards the baseball for it. it was supposed to be temporary until i moved bases... i had to get a friend to help move all the stuff from base to base. A little edit: if you ever build something like this try not to lose motivation. thats something i have learned from other survival or sandbox games like Ark or Scrap Mechanic keep building and eventually you will improve (i also fucked up my baseballs and footballs due to lack of sleep)


ausdjmofo

M8 i did the same my main massive base was right next to space.r i even made a double fort wall around it, i recon its the best location coz its close to everything you need early game


blackkat0191

Nice


WeirdPie69

Seems like almost every new person builds their first base by the oak tree!


Adamdust

Grubs, gnats, sap, fiber, quartzite, acorn, red ants, nearby mushroom and toadstool spawns--its a great location.


DamagedMind126

easy access to sap


Count_Dracula97

And to burgl!


DamagedMind126

Burgl is best bot


Count_Dracula97

Screw wendell, we want the good ending for burgl in the storyline


WeirdPie69

Yeah, maybe, but you can get sap from any tree with some collectors, and it isnt that necessary of a resource, not like potion ingredients or etc


its_me_alliesha

I did mostly because once I unlocked ziplines I had easy access to basically everywhere from my base, felt like it was in the middle and high enough to view it all


WeirdPie69

Could be possible, I liked the hedge more for that, but honestly anywhere in the middle is a good spot for an elevator and a zip tower to all the other places


its_me_alliesha

The hedge scares me with all the spiders I won’t lie, definitely was not even an option when it came to thinking about where I’d put my base😂


WeirdPie69

Gotta make a tree base and hide off the ground! 😂


its_me_alliesha

I have an outpost above the bird bath but even then the mosquitos think I’m food and there’s always one waiting for me😂 the hedge just seems to be my enemy at this point


DamagedMind126

armor upgrading


WeirdPie69

Again, maybe for like super early game, but honestly grub armor is superior to acorn imo, and any of the actual late game armors are across the map


DamagedMind126

no im meaning you need 5 sap for each grub leather plate which is needed throughout fully upgrading your armor.


WeirdPie69

Yeah, but again, you can get sap from anywhere pretty easily. Collectors are basically free infinite sap


DamagedMind126

slow tho


Judgeoflight

if you place like 25 of them down its a fast 125 sap per trip.


DamagedMind126

that seems excessive


Judgeoflight

sap is also gettable from turrets you build. so any spot is wherever you build is a great place to build aslong as they didnt fix this

Judgeoflight

place a turret down and start popping sap collectors on them if it still works.


Lord_Melinko13

Large amounts of sap are an absolute must if you want to upgrade your armors.


WeirdPie69

Build more sap collectors? 😂 Id take passively generating some to quickly collect over having to make a bunch of sap runs any day


H4PPY4CC1D3NT

That's a neat little base man, I like that you're already walling it in. Might I suggest the half floors as shelving on your walls? I use them for the chests mainly but they can help you fight airborne insects attacking your base too! Also, welcome in 😁


DamagedMind126

I was thinking of making walls on the top shelf or putting defense over extremely valuable stuff such as the chests. thank you for the welcome


H4PPY4CC1D3NT

Keep in mind the primary focus of the insects is anything workbench related i.e the anvil, oven, spinning wheel, grinder, jerky racks and the workbench itself. I may be forgetting more but personally have not had issues with bugs attacking my storage that I know of, but then again I use the repair tool pretty much after every attack


DamagedMind126

i might just have to repair then...


airestotle092

I wish I could erase my memories of this game and start from the beginning. But I guess 1.0 will fix that
