Timberborn: Quick beginner's guide
- Take care of the beavers' basic needs. When you start the game, build at least 2 lumberjack flags, a gatherer flag, and the correct warehouses to store the collected materials. Quickly build a water pump and as well as several small water tanks to immediately start gathering supplies for the upcoming drought. Finally, build a farmhouse and plant carrots, which will grow in just 4 days;
- Collect science points from the very beginning with the inventor's building. Science points are required to buy new types of buildings and facilities. As soon as possible, buy stairs and platforms, as they will grant you access to otherwise inaccessible areas;
- Make sure you have access to forests, as logs are an essential building material. Once you have built a lumber mill and produced enough planks, you will be able to buy and build a forester's hut. The forester takes care of planting trees and blueberries;
- Adjusting the working hours is an extremely useful tool in the game. It forces your colony to work harder if they failed to procure enough supplies before the incoming drought.
