Logs and Buildings
« on: February 28, 2019, 07:27:34 am »

So I've got myself a custom site, chopped down some trees, and laid a floor and walls. Found out that sometimes having the logs on the construction site didn't always register as available unless they were picked up and dropped.

Now I'm trying to put a door in, and it's saying there's no wood available, despite me having picked up and dropped logs near the door plan.

Any advice?

You need to build the door in a carpenters workshop. then drop it on the ground. It wont use the logs to make a door, all "buildings" pedestals, doors, beds, rtc. Need to be built in a carpenters workshoop, then when you build they will be built where you wish, much like in fort mode.

To have a carpenters workshop and build it you must press b (to build) -> w (for workshop) -> then choose the carpenters workshop.

To make your door grab a log, go to the carpenters workshop then press x and you should be able to do carpentry. then drop the door.

Thank you! Also figured out that the game won't let you build a wall on a built floor tile so I'm mostly set.

You could recruit 5-10 followers, then assign them to construct in camp site, while you cut trees in your camp zone. Construction goes very fast then. Cutting down 1 tree or building 1 section of construction/building takes 1h.
