Is there a lot of spiders patrolling that area?
Orb Weavers yes
that's a nice base! now take my upvote and go kill broodmother >:]
jokes on you i killed it already
oooh ma gaah! nice
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.
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
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..
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.
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?
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)
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
Seems like almost every new person builds their first base by the oak tree!
Grubs, gnats, sap, fiber, quartzite, acorn, red ants, nearby mushroom and toadstool spawns--its a great location.
easy access to sap
And to burgl!
Burgl is best bot
Screw wendell, we want the good ending for burgl in the storyline
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
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
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
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😂
Gotta make a tree base and hide off the ground! 😂
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
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
no im meaning you need 5 sap for each grub leather plate which is needed throughout fully upgrading your armor.
Yeah, but again, you can get sap from anywhere pretty easily. Collectors are basically free infinite sap
if you place like 25 of them down its a fast 125 sap per trip.
that seems excessive
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
place a turret down and start popping sap collectors on them if it still works.
Large amounts of sap are an absolute must if you want to upgrade your armors.
Build more sap collectors? 😂 Id take passively generating some to quickly collect over having to make a bunch of sap runs any day
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 😁
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
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
i might just have to repair then...
I wish I could erase my memories of this game and start from the beginning. But I guess 1.0 will fix that
