Base Building in The Planet Crafter

Base building is a core mechanic and primary objective in Planet Crafter. When constructing a base, players can incorporate elements that serve both functional and decorative purposes. This includes building structures, storage units, and furniture.

At the start of the game, it's advisable to set up makeshift shelters at points of interest, such as shipwrecks, caves, or easily recognizable landmarks. These shelters provide essential oxygen and allow for the placement of storage containers for collected items.

Once you learn how to deconstruct, you can dismantle and transport these shelters, creating a mobile home that supports your journey.

Build Item Ingredients Purpose
Living Compartment Basic habitat
Compartment Door Gotta have a door to get in to the habitat
Foundation Grid Mostly decorative, provides support for other structures, or makes floors outside

Corner Compartment Rounded living compartment with glass walls on the curved part.
