State of Decay is an open-world sandbox title which takes your decisions and the choices you make into consideration the most.

The game is ever evolving and would test your ultimate survival skills.

For more help on State of Decay, read our Bases/Facilities, Outposts and Survival Strategy Guide.

This guide aims on helping you on how to find different construction material and using it to construct buildings that will allow you to delay the threatened zombie apocalypse and enable your fellow survivors to live longer.

To begin, you will need to complete the prologue and build your first survival camp. After completing your first survival mission, you would be told that there are a bunch of survivals out there that need rescuing and they will work for your cause.

Once you have rescued all those survivors and taken them to your home base. You will be notified that you need to build some extra buildings for your fellow survivors.

However, the game doesn’t tell you where to find all the material you need for construction. Don’t worry, this guide is there to rescue. During your journey in the game, you will come across many under-construction buildings that will carter to your needs. You will find plenty of construction material there that can be used for building homes for your survivors.

There are two ways you can collect resources for construction. You can either go there yourself to collect the material or you can send one of your community members while you complete some other tasks. This is really an interesting addition in the game that supports team-work.

Moreover, you can always go back and check on your fellow-survivor’s progress in collecting the goods. There can be a possibility that they encountered a bunch of zombies in their way and that could sometimes, result in their deaths. Therefore, it is a good idea to clear the area of any zombies lurking around while your team mate gets the shit done.

Now that you know how to collect everything you require for the building process. Let’s get to the construction itself.

To begin, go to your home base and look for any extra space where you can build some sleeping quarters or anything else you wish for, for your increasing community. But first make sure that you have plenty of resources on your hand.

Also, note that building a particular building will require a certain amount of time. For instance, building a sleeping quarter takes almost 10 minutes to build.
