  • 1. after you sleep -> destroy your bed, you wont lose any material if it's only a base bed.. other type of bed will lose like nails or something, then you can carry the material to make bed blueprint anywhere.. no bed = no base, no base = no raid 2. if you want to you can build a fake base, just build a bed somewhere else, so that the raid will attack there.. protect the fake base with walls and then spike traps.. dont forget to drop by after the raid is ended to collect something (that the attacker dropped after they die by the spike traps) and repair the walls and spike traps 3. no need to build animal (rabbit) traps if you already unlocked the spike traps.. just build spike traps around the rabbit hole an visit it daily to collect the meat and fur, and also repairs it 4. unlike in real life deforestation is a good thing here 5. sell anything that piling up in your storage box to that idiot merchant.. he even buy mud that you dug in front of him

  • The controls are super clunky on this game. Somehow I always select multiple monkeys even though I only want to select one. I will highlight only one and it will throw a banana to three around me. The depositing monkeys don't select the chest that already has a material in it and just put it in another chest which is kind of silly AI. Lots of tweaks that I would like to be seen done to this game.

      The_SansinatorThe_Sansinator4 个月 前
    • A handy tip too. Pit the chest on the ground and tear the forest apart and rocks. Then teach a monkey to fill it for you by simply picking up one thing and putting it in the chest. Then once the area is clear you can move on
