To avoid the lack of arsenal, it is better to share responsibilities for its collection with your fellow players.
As mentioned in our article earlier, it is better to prepare in the daytime. Engage in exploration of locations, construction and fortification. In the game you can erect buildings of any type and to any taste. First, find the area where you want to erect a base. Take care of clearing the chosen location and start building. Buildings can be erected from different materials: stone, metal or wood. And if your construction suddenly turns out a little different from the ideal, all the buildings in the game can be corrected.
To gather the necessary resources for construction, you need to destroy the surrounding objects. If your character has gained a certain "yellow ball", it means that you have gained a new level of gathering speed and combat characteristics.Storyline
