Raft – Tips & Tricks

23 May 2018, Wednesday, 14:39:05

Tips & Tricks


1. Placing Equipment

If Possible always place equipment over one or more tiles. That way if one gets destroyed the item is still on the other piece so it is still there. You can also put them on roofs and walls which can help making them even safer.



2.Water Purifier

Remember, unlike the old raft you do not actually put the cup into the purifier you only use it to put water in and take it out. This has lead to confusion among many youtubers and it is likely that other players will also struggle with this is they think it is like the old raft.



3.Throwable Anchor

The bucket anchor is a one time use so make sure to use it wisely. Only use if for big islands you can reach without needing anymore resources. Otherwise you may not have enough. When you are anchored resources will not float by as the stay in about the same spot. It also helps to throw it close to the island as the raft is dragged that way.



4.Damage Underwater

If you take damage underwater it is probably the shark eating you and not the plants if your oxygen bar still has oxygen left. If none is left then it is the oxygen bar. (It may also be the eels)



5.Managing Your Status

We recommend keeping both of your stats high and at about the same level. If you have high water and low food (and vice versa) it will affect your speed and other things. Keeping them high also helps heal quicker and also if you run out of food or water you will have more time to get it before you die.




Research in raft is simple and easy. However we would not recommend starting it before you have decent resources as many things that the research table unlock are for cosmetic or upgraded things that you already have in a lower form. When you do decide to do some research put all the items in for the recipe you want to unlock. (these items will also unlock in other recipes that feature them) then when you have put in all the resources something takes to craft click the learn button that appears. If you get a blueprint you also need to put it in the top of the crafting table to allow that recipe to be unlocked by putting items in. It sounds complicated but in game it is actually very simple.



7. Building Upwards

While most people will know how this works many won’t as it has changed from itch slightly and not everyone has played itch. When building upwards you need supports from the floor below. In the old itch the supports used to need to be massive and in the middle. However in the steam edition of raft the poles are small and can go on the edges (and in the middle depending on how big the floor is) They can hold 2 if they are on the side and 4 if they are positioned in the middle. (pretty sure this is the case)




Seagulls like to eat your crops and can be a very be very irritating however you can do things to stop this. The main way is to build a scarecrow which scares off the seagulls, however they can be damaged by them if you are not careful. A more simple way is to kill them but you need to be quick or they will just fly way. You are rewarded for your efforts with 2 drumsticks and 5 – 8 feathers.



9.Easy movement of items

Shift + left click to instantly move items to chest or hotbar. (If chest is not open.) Same system that many inventory style games use. This also include middle clicking to split stacks as well as holding right click.



10. You can wear the shark head if you place it in one of your equipment slots.
