REND has a lot of different options for building and crafting. Base Building in itself is quite complex and there are a lot of factors to watch out for if you want to build a massive base. Our REND Base Building Guide will help you understand all of the mechanics. Our REND Base Building Guide will tell you all about how the base building in REND actually works and what do you need to do in order to be able to build bases which are actually worth having.
REND Base Building
Before we begin, it is important to remember a few details about base building. One of them is the fact that you cannot move a frame or a structure once it has been placed. You cannot move any items but you can destroy frames and take 25 structural damage. For this reason, planning it is much more important than anything else in this game.
It is also important to remember that personal bases are not always the right idea. They can hinder the resources for your faction so it is best to have your base as far away from the faction stronghold as you can.
Base Building Materials
The tools that you need are Spirit Tools and the Construction Hammer. Once you have them, you can build a base using Crumblestone Frames or Wooden Frames. You can craft them with their materials such as Crumblestone Frames require you to have Roughwood Sticks, Crumblestone, and Fiber Twine.
Once you are done making your structures, you will be able to upgrade them. In order to upgrade them, you will need Crumblestone Bricks which will be crafted from Crumblestone at a Stonecutter Station. After that, you will need cement which can be crafted by combining Sticky Sap and Crumblestone in the Mortar Station. You will also need a water-filled source in order to craft it.
How Base Building Works?
You can open up the interface by pressing B. After that, choose the structure you want and press R while looking at a placed frame to change what you want the frame to be such as a door or a window. You can also use the right mouse button with the scroll wheel to manipulate the frame and the foundation of the building.
Start building with a foundation and make sure the ground does not clip through the floor. Fill your base up with the walls and once you have done that, you need the Divinity Seed in order to restrict permissions on who can edit your base. You can craft a Divinity Seed using Crumblestone, Roughwood Log, Fiber Twine, and Sunstone Topaz. Remember that these seeds take a lot of space so it is best to put them down first and build your base around them.
Expanding your Base
You can use windows, walls, and doors in order to expand your base. It is up to you to decide where you want to place them and do it according to your whim. One thing to remember is that you should not forget the stairs if you are building above ground. The roofs can be built by using the Platform feature and supporting it through support pillars.
You can also upgrade your base. You will need extra materials such as 8 Crumblestone Bricks along with 1 Concrete. This will make your base much stronger and will allow it to withstand attacks like the standard base could not. After this, you will be able to upgrade it further to Cragrock and Granite to make them even stronger.
One very important addition to have is the Personal Crafting Table which will allow you to craft further things. It can be crafted at the Stoneworker’s Slab using 8 Crumblestone Bricks, 20 Roughwood Lumber, and 6 Fiber Twine. The good thing is that one table can be used to craft other tables which end up working out because you will need a lot of tables in order to be able to craft everything you want.
Lastly, you should also try to build a personal refinery from your table. They will work as the other refineries but they take up a lot of room so you should be careful of where you place them. After that, the last important step is to have storage items which can also be crafted from the crafting tables. There are many storage items and the best one is Roughwood Armor Rack and the Roughwood Weapon Rack.
After this, you have all of the essentials and then you can simply go ahead and try to build what you want and what you think will be best for your specific play style and purpose.
