Your first day
Players appear in the world at the "spawn location". If a player dies in the game, the player will reappear (respawn) at the initial spawn location until the player spawn point is reset. (A way to reset player's spawn location can be found later in the game.) It's a good idea to set a marker for this spawn point when a player first appears in the world. Either right mouse click on the world map or through the command
/waypoint add [waypointcolor] [title]. This command adds a waypoint with given color (any .NET Color or a Hex Code) and text.
Find flint or loose stones (basalt, granite, andesite, obsidian or peridotite).
Sneak + Right click on solid ground to create a knapping surface. Choose the tool to create from the menu. We recommend an Axe and a Knife. Using a stone in the active hand,
left click on the orange boxes to remove them from the stone and shape the finished blade or tool head. When the last orange box is removed, the completed tool head will transfer to the player's hotbar. Press E to open the inventory GUI and access the crafting grid. In the grid, combine the stone tool blade with a stick (handle) to create the finished tool. Sticks can be collected from the ground or by breaking leafy branches using
You have 3 types of slots
- The off hand slot can hold passive items such as torches
- 10 hand slots
- 4 container slots that let you expand your inventory.
Here are some of your first day options for food:
- Mushrooms can be harvested with a knife or your hands. Harvesting the tops with a knife will allow the mushrooms to regrow over time.
- Ripe Berry Bushes can be harvested without tools, and then broken and replanted anywhere else. After a while they will start to bloom again.
- Cattail roots can be harvested using a knife and cooked over a fire as a source of early game forage.
- Most animals can be killed and harvested with a knife for nutritious meat and fat. Hold
Sneak + Hold Right clickwith a knife in hand to harvest animals. Meat must be cooked in a fire pit.
Light / Cooking
Once the sun sets, a player might want to create a fire pit as a source of light and for cooking. Gather the following resources:
- Dry grass:
left clickwith a knife in hand to gather tall grass
left clickwith an axe in hand to cut trees and harvest logs. Place the axe and log(s) in the crafting grid to create firewood.
Sneak + Right click on solid ground with the dry grass in hand to place a fire pit. Next,
Sneak + Right click with (4) firewood in hand to complete the fire pit.
Congratulations, meat can be cooked and new torches created by heating sticks!
To defend yourself and kill creatures craft stone weapons with knapping. Different weapons have different ranges. Spears are the strongest long range weapon in the stone age, but break quickly. Create a stone spearhead by knapping, and combine with a stick (shaft) in the crafting grid to craft the spear. Knives, axes, or just plain sticks can all be used as weapons, but these have shorter ranges than the spear. In an emergency, small stones can be thrown at mobs.
