I decided to compile this Questions and Answers (FAQs) for newbies, as I figure stuff out. Please help me answer some of these questions, and I will update this post as I get more information.
Questions and Answers (FAQs) for newbies
Is the Experimental world currently “liveable”? Can you find food, eat and remain alive?
The general consensus seems to be yes, but barely. Eating is still difficult. Wolf meat doesn’t cook, and cant be eaten raw. Chicken can be cooked*, but can’t be found anywhere. Currently only human meat can be eaten, as far as I am aware. (Please correct me if I’m wrong).*
Where to find food? I was told to “look for wolves in the forest”, but then I heard wolf meat doesn’t cook?
Currently it seems killing other humans is the only food source. (Please correct me if I’m wrong).
Do I need to drink, and if so, where do I find water?
Thirst quenchers aren’t in yet. Eating human meat does provide some thirst relief but not much, and going in water doesn’t help.
How do I build walls? (doors, stairs, etc)
Right-click on the foundations and then select “Wall plan”, (or “Wooden door plan”, “Stair plan”, etc), from the menu. This deploys the frame, which must them be hit with your hammer to complete. This costs 10x wood. You’ll need to build a foundation first; walls can only be built on foundation tiles, or on floor tiles that are supported by at least 1 wall.
When I die, I respawn in a different part of the world? Is there anyway to find my old cabin again?
If you manage to craft and deploy a sleeping bag, then you will always respawn by your sleeping bag. Put this inside your locked cabin to respawn in a safe place!
How do I craft a sleeping bag?
A sleeping bag requires 50x cloth, but as yet I still haven’t figured out how to get cloth… (please advise for you know).
I built and deployed a campfire, but couldn’t light it?
Currently, you don’t seem to be able to light campfires. You get a prompt “Open Fire”, but can’t select it. Apparently you have to add wood to the campfire’s “inventory” first, but I haven’t figured that out. (please advise for you got fires working).
Where do I find metal? I need metal to make most tools…
You can get iron ore by hitting interesting looking stones with your rock. This can in theory be smelted in your furnace to create metal, but it is unclear whether this works yet, (please advise).
Please add to this thread with more information. I will update this post as I get answers!
Thanks for your help!
