BEST HOUSE CHECK LIST
THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT MAKE THE BEST HOUSE SPOTS
FLAT AREA TO WORK ON---------------------(MAKES BUILDING EASIER)
NEARBY SUITCASES----------------------------(THEY CONTAIN SUPPLES)
NEARBY TREES------------------------------------(MAKES BUILDING EASIER)
NEARBY ANIMAL LOCATIONS-----------------(FOR MORE FOOD)
EASY ACSESS TO MATERIALS----------------(FOR UPGRADING THE BASE OR ADDING TRAPS)
EASY ACSESS TO WATER----------------------(FOR DRINKING OR IF ON FIRE)

1 LOG CABBIN
MULTIPLE DEFFENCIVE WALLS
2 DOORS
2 FIRE PLACES
2 DRYING RACKS

THIS HOUSE IS THE MOST COMPACT YET EFFICIANT HOUSE IVE DESIGHNED
HERE IS THE LAYOUT

STAKEOUT / TEMPORARY BASE
HERE IS A LAYOUR FOR A STAKEOUT / TEMPORARY BASE

BESY WAY TO GET WOOD
THE BEST CUTTING METHOD:

ITS BEST TO USE A MODERN AXE THAT HAS SPEED AND DAMAGE UPGRADES AS IT WILL ALLOW YOU TO CUT DOWN TREES FASTER

THE BEST TRANSPORT METHOD:

THE BEST TRANSPORT METHOD IS TO USE A LOG SLED AS YOU CAN TRANSPORT 11 LOGS AT A TIME
HOW TO CONTROL HOW A TREE FALLS
YOU CAN CONTROL THE WAY A TREE FALLS BY FACING THE DIRECTION YOU WANT IT TO FALL WHEN YOU CUT IT DOWN
BEST WAY TO STORE LOGS
THE BEST WAY TO STORE LOGS IS IN A LOG HOLDER BUT YOU ALSO WANT TO LAY THEM OUT IN A CENTAINT WAY TO MAKE GRABBING AND STORING LOGS EASYER

HERE IS A PICTURE OF HOW TO DO IT RIGHT

THE REASON THERE IS GAPS BETWEEN THE HOLDERS IS SO YOU YOU CAN PUT SKULL TORCHES AND THERE ARE PATHWAYS BECAUSE LOG HOLDERS COLLIDE WITH PLAYERS


HOW TO USE BOATS
step 1: put the boat in the water
step 2: get on the boat
step 3: use the stick thing to control the boat

you forgot the recipe for bombs.

Guide is good, but I'd say you got the berries confused a bit. Black berries that have no color next to them aren't poisonous as I've eaten quite a few without any damage. However black berries that have the color orange growing with them though are, they're called Twinberries.

Yeah, was just offering to help format it in a way easy to read, merge segments etc. But if you're fine with the way it is that's fine too.
